Latvian Regulator Issues Warning About Fake Lotteries

Home » Latvian Regulator Issues Warning About Fake Lotteries

On November 12, a warning was issued to citizens by the Latvian Gaming Regulator regulating lotteries and gaming supervisory audit (IAUI) to protect against bogus lotteries and alleged online scams. The regulator warned that they should do their research to ensure the company is legal before making any transactions of tickets, iGaming Business notes.

The regulator advised people to be careful, but also clarified that deciding whether a corporation is genuine is “virtually impossible.” Deciding who is a scam is quite a task, but he said there are a range of warning signs to look for that can help determine whether a company is likely to be a fraud.

The first guide presented was about how to reach consumers. The regulator explained that they usually reach out to customers either by email or by telephone, letting them know they have won. They are told, however,that their winning results in the immediate need for their prize to pay taxes. They are also told that to receive their winnings, they need to transfer taxes and any additional fees.
The regulator warned that the IAUI never required the payment of taxes in this way. In this way, this money should never be paid because it is probably a scam.

The second warning sign is when a person is informed they’ve won a prize because they realize they’ve not been participating in any draw. Lottery winners are those who have chosen to participate in the lottery, and those who have not played are not awarded prizes.
Customers were also alerted to pay attention to the email address from which the message came. Gmail or Hotmail accounts are not used by the lottery services to notify customers that they have won.

Therefore, proper grammar is not only for class, but also an indication of whether somebody might be trying to scam consumers. Although one or two minor grammatical errors can be understandable when major errors occur and many of them are permanent.
