Re: The Camelot Group. Scam?

Did you enter this lottery?
If the answer is no, well then you didn't win.

By the way. It is illegal for US citizens to enter foreign lotteries.

If you are in the US, I have no idea since you didn't list a location in your profile.

Scam. Real lotteries will make you do tax paperwork and deduct fees from your winnings. No "payment" required.

Re: The Camelot Group. Scam?

Actually as an UK citizen I can tell you that we dont actually get taxed on ANY gambling winnings...... The tax is paid for by the company you win it off (ie casino/betting shop etc in the rate they pay to operate as a licenced operator....).

However if you won a large amount, they will either Call you, or visit you at home with a large novelty cheque, expecting a photo for publicity (you can opt out of this is you want). You certainly dont have to pay any fee to win this money, as they actually want big winners (makes people think it can be them, plus they make more profit from a bigger win) and go out of thier way to give you the money.... They even offer a person to come to your house and tell you how to get the most out of the money such as investments, bonds and the like, all this is provided free of charge from Camelot

OIC. Thanks for the info. I'm in the USA, and as I understand it, any winnings over $600 are taxable.

Re: The Camelot Group. Scam?

Silverrain,

The law was changed about 8 or 9 years ago (ish). It's one of the best things that ever happen to the UK (im a big gambler myself) but has had bad effects also.

It is now very very easy to launder money, this is done by taking the un-taxed income (chinese restaurants do it all the time) changing it into chips, gambling 10%, if you lose it nevermind, if you win happydays, then take your chips and cash them in, but this time ask for a cheque, pay this into your bank account, wait 7 days for it to clear, and you got "clean" money. If the inland revenue (equivilent IRS) does an investigation you can claim the deposit was gambling winnings.

In the old days you paid tax on your stake or on your winnings, I think it was about 7%, so for a £10 bet you would pay 70p tax, but if you didnt pay the tax before you placed the bet, and lets say you won £100 you would now pay £7 tax!! I always paid tax on the stake, otherwise you were basically saying you didnt think the bet would win, in which case "why are you betting"?

100% scam.

it fails on so many grounds

1) email contact. not what camelot do.
2) pay money to get money.
3) a winning US player.
4) winning without playing.
