Warning re Fraudulent E-mail

Fraudulent e-mails claiming to have been sent by Amnesty International are in constant circulation. Typically, though not exhaustively, these claim that by random selection  the recipient has won or can enter a competition or lottery and then request personal information and/or some form of payment from the recipient.

If you receive an e-mail of this nature, we urge that you do not respond but instead, simply delete them.

Please note that our UK offices are running a genuine and legitimate weekly lottery to fundraise for our work and will send emails to people in the UK about this.  You can find out more details about the UK lottery and sign up to play at:  lottery.amnesty.org.uk

If you are in any doubt or are otherwise by such e-mails, please contact your national office or contact the International Secretariat.
