Who ever thought this could happen to nicer persons?
The couple in good faith hired some workers to restore a house they had bought from the price money.
Date; 12 july - 2015
Robin and Lesley won the Natinal Lottery back in june 2012
Lesley and Robin Palmer from from Swillington, Leeds in the UK won the Natinal Lottery in june 2012. Catching a mind staggering two million pounds. Who ever thought this could happen to nicer persons? Back than the couple was totally blown away by winning the lottery, a chance in a million. But now they are left with nothing, as they go robbed by some hardenend criminals.
The couple in good faith hired some workers to restore a house they had bought from the price money. These builders (of Rumanian origin) went on fast in restoring the building. However as one of them got wind of the fact that Lesley and Robin had quite some money stowed away in their piggybag.
Scammed in a cunning way
At first “every thing went well Robin said”, but somehow this person managed to get hold of our bank account data, and scammed the living daylight out of us. He got hold of our creditcard, made a copy and flew back to Rumania where he had a friend in a local bank. This friend made a fake account using our data and somehow succeeded in transferring our money. Leaving us without a single penny.
Internet is killing for lottery winners
Interpol went ahead and contacted the local Rumanian police, but they refused to do anything as they said we passed on our data voluntarily to this person. That is total bullocks as we would never to that. It turns out the internet had a great part in this as it shows us winning the lottery, as i think now we never should have agreed on taking our pictures and publish them.
Warning for future lottery winners
I would like to say to every future lottery winnner, don’t get your picture taken when winning. You are just an open book for criminals or other people wanting to take advantage of you. I guess Lesley and Robin share my thoughts on this.
