Another scam, be vigilant

    Topics on scam have already been published on the habr with SMS newsletter about participation in the prize lottery, here's another:

    It's about winning a car.

    Tonight I received an SMS with the following content:

    Congratulations !!!
    You became the owner of 1 of 3 cars AUDI A6
    tel +7 (964) 6280754
    from 10 to 20

    sms came from number +7 (905) 5359740

    I certainly do not believe in all this, but for the sake of interest I decided to go to the site and get acquainted with the terms of the action.
    The site immediately made it clear that it was done on his knee in a hurry for the action.

    The promotion goes together with Yandex Money and when buying a car you get a bonus in the form of a Yandex money card for 9tr

    Now the most interesting thing is that although the SMS promised me oath that I had already become the owner of a brand new car, there was other information in the rules: to become not just a scam participant, but guaranteed to receive a prize, I need to deposit 29700 rubles into the account, after which I a seven-digit pincode will be issued, which will participate in the lottery.

    But the most interesting is that the domain of a serious Audi auto center (about which there is nothing on the Internet) was registered 6 days ago.

    Having broken through the contact phone, I came across a description of similar raffles from the companies FORD MOTORS and LADA together with autoradio.
    Here is a discussion thread

    Question - how to punish this scam?
    Hand over the number from which the newsletter is being sent to Sat Beeline?
    What else can be done to cover this shop?

    I hid the domain information and the main interesting excerpts from the rules under the habrakat:

    domain: IRBIS-MOTORS.RU
    person: Private Person
    phone: +7 903 1532925
    registrar: REGTIME-REG-RIPN
    created: 08.08.19
    paid-till: 2011.08.19
    source: TCI

    Next I gave the main interesting excerpts from the rules:

    “A participant of the AUDI Prize Promotion can be considered a prize winner and GUARANTEED to receive his prize only if he fully agrees with the above Conditions for holding the Promotion and receives the SEVEN-PIN PIN of the PRIZEER recorded in the computer database of the AUDI Prize Promotion.


    The procedure and rules for obtaining a seven-digit prize winner’s code is strictly regulated and can not be changed either by the organizer of the prize campaign or by the participant (winner). Receiving a seven-digit prize-winner’s PIN code is an exclusively computerized form of randomly generating a PIN-code from the database and cannot be obtained in any other way than the rules of the “AUDI” prize Promotion. The seven-digit prize-winner’s code is generated only after the participant of the promotion makes an advertising contribution for the guaranteed prize received in the amount strictly established by these rules on holding the prize campaign “AUDI”. The amount of the payment of the duty fee cannot be changed except as described above and agreed with the rules of this promotion.

    For other citizens who become owners of a valuable prize, the

    following payment amount is provided - 29,700 rubles.

    The participant of the prize promotion pays the required amount exclusively according to the rules regulated by this promotion. This is necessary to fix the receipt of the amount by the computer and the computer to automatically generate the seven-digit prize-winner's code. In case of incorrect payment of the payment amount by the participant of the action, the organizers of the action in person shall not be liable for the impossibility of correctly generating the seven-digit PIN code of the participant by the computer.

    After the payment is received correctly, the computer issues a seven-digit PIN - code of the participant, which transfers the participant of the “AUDI” promotion to the status of Winner and will guarantee to receive the prize. The participant of the action chooses for himself a convenient form of crediting funds to receive a seven-digit prize-winner’s code.

    The first method The

    participant of the action within one (strictly) hour independently transfers the necessary amount of money to the balance of his or her other phone number chosen by the participant via Yandex payment cards - money, following the instructions of the prize department operator.

    Second way

    You can also make payments through integrated instant payment systems, i.e. payment terminals. Such as “iBox”, “Mobile Element”, “Europe”, “Sprint-Net”, “Irispey”, “Express Payment” ... Upon arrival at the payment terminal, the prize winner makes a call to the prize department of the Irbis-motor Auto Center. Then he makes a payment, thereby registering. After the total accumulation of funds in the amount of 29,700 rubles, the computer records the moment of receipt of payment and automatically generates a seven-digit pin - the prize winner’s code, which, in turn, the operator provides to the winner, calling out loud.

    The seven-digit pin formed after the payment of funds is stored exclusively with the participant of the action (prize winner) and cannot be used in the future to receive a prize. According to the rules of this promotion, information about the participant receiving a PIN code and the seven-digit PIN code itself is confidential and is not subject to disclosure and transfer to other persons.


    1. Prize drawing is carried out by computer selection of the winner.
    2. The drawing is carried out by the prize department of the Irbis-motor Auto Center.
    3. Each operator who processes the dialer and the conversation with the winner subscriber carefully explains the essence of the campaign and clearly explains the steps to the subscriber to receive the won Prize. The operator of the campaign must clearly indicate his name and ID.
    4. After dialing by the operator to the subscriber who won the prize, the subscriber must call back to the prize department of the Irbis-motor Auto Center to record his call by the computer and assign the prize determined as a result of random selection to the subscriber.
    5. The time regulated for the subscriber to replenish his telephone balance for advertising purposes of Yandex - money payment cards is defined by these conditions and is 60 minutes from the end of the conversation with the operator.
    6. The subscriber chooses for himself the WAY to replenish his TELEPHONE BALANCE, strictly following the step-by-step instructions of the operator of the prize department of the Auto Center Irbis-motor.
    7. From the moment the full payment is credited, the operator gives the subscriber a seven-digit registration pin - the prize winner’s code, which will serve as a guarantee of receiving the prize that has fallen on the subscriber’s phone number.
    8. In case of non-compliance with the operator’s step-by-step instructions when a subscriber enters a payment, the Irbis-motor Auto Center does not guarantee receipt by the subscriber of the prize they won. ”
