Loteria Vizelor
Am publicat mai jos un exemplu de mesaj fraudulos trimis pentru a obtine bani in mod ilegal de la cei care au aplicat la loteria vizelor si nu isi dau seama ca au de aface cu un mesaj de tip "phishing" / "scam".
Ce este phishing-ul? Phishing-ul este situatia în care un escroc trimite mesaje e-mail care par ca provin de la o companie de încredere, cu scopul de a convinge destinatarul sa îi dezvaluie informatii personale sau financiare importante. Mai multe detalii pe pagina CyberCrime.ro

Va recomand sa NU dati curs solicitarilor dintr-un asemenea mesaj! Mai jos va exemplific si de ce. Am scris cu rosu pentru a sublinia paragrafele care contin informatii false.

  Congratulations, you've won !
Dear [Numele Tau] ,
Congratulations ! You are among those randomly selected and registered for further consideration in the diversity immigrant program. Selection guarantees that
you will receive a United States Permanent Resident Card(also known as Green Card or Diversity Visa) only if you follow the instructions for further processing.
Fals. Selectia nu garanteaza obtinerea unei vize, trebuie urmat procesul de obtinere a vizei si cel mai important, interviul.

Acceptance Date: Monday 31st of January 2011 08:25:16 AM
Winner Name: [Numele Tau]
Country of Birth: Romania

Is the Diveristy Visa FREE ?
No. There is a big confusion. Only the participation in the Diversity Visa Lottery was free but the winners must pay the visa processing fees.

The fee is used to process your visa related documents and verify your identity.

Fees:

Type of Residence Card Status Amount (per person)
United States Permanent Resident Card Granted! - Waiting for payment of processing fee $869
Processing fees Included
Total $869

Fals. Cardul de rezidenta permanent nu poate fi acordat doar pe baza platii unei sume de bani. Aceasta suma este cumulul unor taxe (care sunt explicate in detaliu de catre organizatori celor care ajung in acesta faza) si poate fi platit doar la ambasada/consulat in momentul sustinerii interviului.
INSTRUCTIONS

Please read and follow all the instructions very carefully. With the Diversity Visa (also known as Green Card) you will enjoy all the advantages and benefits of a US permanent resident, including health and education benefits, and employment opportunities along with guidance in your new country, orientation sessions and programs to integrate into mainstream American society. Once received you can use it at any time you want to move in the United States or just travel. The visa must be renewed after 10 years.

Although you will have all the rights that a U.S. citizen has in the United States, without a relative or friend in the United States you may find the relocation difficult and expensive due the lack of experience in the American society. Therefore the U.S. Government helps you with the accommodation and offers you along with each visa Health Insurance (Freedom HSA Direct Individual Health insurance for 1 year), Dwelling(Apartment in any city you prefer, 1 bedroom for 3 months ), a guaranteed job(in the field that you are are currently qualified so you can start working even from the first week you arrive in the United States and get paid as U.S citizen. ) and education (for U.S. Students or Higher Education through EducationUSA. It includes transfer to a U.S college or Univeristy so you can continue your educational study. More details can be found at http://educationusa.state.gov/ .)
Fals. Citez din instructiuni: solicitantilor care obtin o viza DV nu li se furnizeaza nici un tip de ajutor cum ar fi biletul de calatorie, cazarea sau alte ajutoare. Daca sunteti selectat sa aplicati pentru o viza DV, inainte de a vi se elibera o viza, vi se va cere sa furnizati dovada ca nu veti deveni o sarcina publica in Statele Unite.

We remind you that only the visa processing fee ($869) is mandatory and the visa is guaranteed upon receiving the payment.
Fals. Plata unei sume nu garanteaza obtinerea vizei.
Accompanying family members(wife/husband, fiancee, brothers, sisters, children, cousins) may be included in the program and their visas will be provided at the same time with yours so you can travel/move together in the same time. However the fees must be paid per person and each member(e.g wife, brother, parents, children, cousin) must pay $869. There is no discount for children.
Fals. Numai sotul/sotia poate acompania aplicantul principal plus copiii, daca acesti exista si trebuie sa indeplineasca anumite reguli mentionate in regulile de participare la loterie.

Visa Payment processing instructions

In timpul interviului, ofiterul ambasadei poate refuza aprobarea obtinerii vizei.

The visa processing fee(US$ 869) is mandatory for each person and the U.S. Government doesn't offer any discount, loan or exception.

Fals. In acest mesaj totul se intampla NUMAI dupa ce plata a fost efectuata, ceea ce nu este cazul la loteria vizelor. In plus, nu se face referire la care editie a loteriei a fost selectionata persoana careia ii este adresat mesajul.
If it would be necessary to contact the U.S. Department of state YOU MUST ALWAYS REFER TO YOUR NAME. The email address is gov.usa.state@usa.com
Fals. Oficial, pentru persoanele care sunt selectate, corespondenta cu organizatorii se face cu referire la Numarul dosarului (Case Number) pentru ca, nu-i asa, pot exista mai multe persoane cu acelasi nume...
