CHINESE DISCO LOTTERY: Identity Theft Scam

ku-xlarge.jpg

THIS IS FROM A MEMO PUT OUT BY MALL SECURITY IN A DELAWARE MALL, BUT IS HAPPENING AT MALLS EVERYWHERE. KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THIS, AND LET YOUR FAMILY KNOW ABOUT IT:


Attention all security personnel and store managers:

Please print and share this memo with ALL mall employees.

Be on the lookout for people approaching customers and offering to sell them scratch off variety lottery tickets. This is a scam. Repeat: THIS IS A SCAM. The lottery tickets are legitimate looking, normal sized scratch off tickets with tan backgrounds, black and green lettering, and the words CHINESE DISCO LOTTERY printed across the top. On the left is is a gray area to be scratched off revealing a prize. On the right is an image of a young Asian couple dressed in 1950’s style clothing dancing beneath a disco ball.

The tickets are almost always being offered for sale by a young nicely dressed male and female who claim they are raising money for university scholarships for underprivileged youths. This is NOT a legitimate lottery. THE TICKETS ARE FAKE: Each ticket claims to be a winner of between $25.00 and $5,000.00. The back of the tickets advise the holder to mail in a copy of their identification, along with various personal information including checking account number and bank routing number. The tickets state this information will be used for direct deposit of winnings. Local authorities verify this information is being used to make withdrawals from the account, open new accounts, as well as more in depth identity theft. They confirm this is occurring nation wide and is well organized.

If you see any activity of this sort, please contact a member of mall security immediately.
