The scams fraudulently claim to be associated with FIFA World Cup 2018 Russia.

These scams invite recipients to submit a tender or inform recipients to have won a lottery prize. In order to receive the price money, recipients are persuaded to provide personal information or bank details to initiate the process. In some cases recipients are even asked to send the money as upfront payment to enter the tender process.

  4. The mail may ask users to provide personal information or bank details and promise quick financial gain.
  5. Receipts may even be asked to send some amount as upfront payment to initiate the process of delivering the lottery amount.

In order to rescue people from falling in the vicious trap of these swindling email scams, FIFA strongly recommends public to be suspicious and treat any correspondence concerning lottery draws with extreme caution.

FIFA further recapitulates of not having any connection with such correspondence. It retaliates that such fraudulent authorizations are in no way related to FIFA World Cup tournaments or any FIFA events.
