Back in 2010 Islanders were targeted by mailshots announcing that they had won a large amount of money on Euromillions and asking them for personal information and especially bank account details. A recent enquiry to the Jersey Gambling Commission suggests that a new scam is targeting Jersey residents using the Internet. Themed on Euromillions the advert/email states that Jersey residents can now play Euromillions online and asks people to register with their personal and bank account details to play.
Jersey residents cannot play the Lotto and Euromillions on line. This advert saying they can is a fraud.
