Diversity Visa Scam Alert
Many Iraqis are getting e-mails from criminals pretending to be the Department of State.
The Department of State does not notify Diversity Visa lottery winners by e-mail.
Many of these e-mails ask you to send money by Western Union to the following address in London:
24 Grosvenor Square
London, W1A 2LQ
This is the physical address of the U.S. Embassy in London, but this is a trick: the money will go to the criminal somewhere else in the world.
