Another email from Jason Voghel and the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh yes, from Jason Voghel, we get a lot of emails from various email addresses. Today we are promised “Big Money” if we activate our account. The link in the email takes us to a fake EUROMONEY article on the Russian site https://lhfrist.ru. The article hails getting rich via the Lottery Heroes scheme. One is also led to the lottery betting site Lottery Heroes (www.lotteryheroes.com) if one wants to sign up for the new riches.
Operators and Payment Processors
Lottery Heroes is actually a lottery betting site, which Purple Rain N.V. allegedly operates, a company registered and licensed in Curacao (OpenCorporates). Purple Rain operates under the Master License of Gaming Services Provider N.V.
The website operator is Bem Blackdiamond Evolve Marketing Ltd in Cyprus (OpenCorporates), a subsidiary of Purple Rain N.V., which registered as director and secretary. Well, Cyprus, hmm! Not again! Therefore, it is not really surprising to find Praxis Cashier run by Amit Klatchko as the payment processor. Praxis Cashier integrates credit and debit cards, AstroPay, GiroPay, the Paysafe Card, Skrill, and the German Online Ueberweisen transfers.
When transferring money via Online Ueberweisen (www.onlineueberweisen.com), the beneficiary is CURO Payments B.V. Online money transfer is operated by FinTecSystems GmbH, which is registered in Munich, Germany, and regulated by BaFin. Evidently, CURO Payments is one of the payment agents of the Lottery Hereos scheme in the EU.
Fraud campaign with illegal offering
Tens of thousands of people in the EU have already lost a lot of money in these lottery betting schemes. Notorious was the LottoPalace of Uwe Lenhoff, also registered and licensed on Curacao, which was closed by the authorities in 2019 after the arrest of Lenhoff. Lotto Heroes operates on the same model. Including fraudulent marketing campaigns.
The fraudulent marketing campaign is primarily aimed at German-speaking victims. Not only is the marketing campaign designed to defraud, but Lottery Heroes is also illegal without a license in the EU and the respective EU member state. Stay far away from Lottery Heroes. This is an illegal gambling offering chasing victims via fraudulent affiliate campaigns.
If you have any information about Lottery Heroes we would appreciate it if you could share it with us.
