This notice is issued by the Financial Supervision Commission (“the Commission”) in accordance with the powers conferred upon it under Section 22 of the Financial Supervision Act 1988.
The Commission has become aware of emails purporting to have been sent by the above named entity.
The emails claim that the above entity has an address of 1, Athol Street, Douglas, Isle of Man. The emails claim that the above entity is the claims agent for an alleged lottery and seek payment of several thousand pound “handling and processing charge” in relation to an alleged $20,000,000 lottery win.
Enquiries carried out by the Commission have established that the above entity has no presence at and is unknown to the genuine occupants of the aforementioned Isle of Man address.
The above entity is not a company incorporated within the jurisdiction of the Isle of Man. It is not registered as a foreign company having established a place of business on the Isle of Man. It is not registered as a business name on the Isle of Man.
The above entity is not licensed by the Commission to undertake any regulated activities in, on or from the Isle of Man.
A list of all institutions licensed by the Commission is available on our website.
The Commission has established no association between this entity and any genuine Isle of Man companies.

Under the circumstances the Financial Supervision Commission feels that these emails are being issued in order to tempt the recipient into becoming the victim of a so called “Lottery Scam”.
Under the circumstances, the Commission would strongly urge persons considering dealing with this entity to exercise the greatest possible caution before proceeding, bearing in mind the contents of this public notice.
