More fraudulent DV emails sent to “lucky” people

Again DV Lottery Entrants are receiving emails telling them that they won. Even people who never entered the Visa Lottery are getting emails with congratulations ! Senders use a seal to make their email look official and even include a Winning Number. The receivers of the emails are told to click a link for further processing. The seal is fake and so is the number. The link however is real, delivering the “lucky” people into the hands of the scammers. 

The US Department of State (DOS) repeated that it does not send emails or letters to inform DV Entrants that they are selected in the Visa Lottery. It also does not call people. It does not contact people through social media. The only way to find out if one is a winner – or not – is to do the Entrant Status Check on the eDV website. DOS advises strongly not to respond to the email. 


Visa Lottery scams in Iran, Iraq, Nepal, and elsewhere

There are this year more Visa Lottery scams than ever before ! Especially in Iran, Iraq, Nepal.

Scammers are sending emails and letters to people who entered the DV program last year (DV-2018) or the year before (DV-2017). These emails and letters contain links that will lead to the scammers. Responding to these emails/letters will cost you money, but will not get you a Green Card.

Tthe US Government does NOT send emails or letters to Lottery Entrants informing them that they won. Please do not respond to letters that pretend to be from the National Visa Center NVC, the Kentucky Consular Center KCC, the US Department of State (DOS), US Immigration Services (USCIS). They are all fake. The same goes for emails that you won, they are fake. Your “winning number” is a fake. Please do not react !
