CHEATERS impersonate EuroMillions winners Gillian and Adrian Bayford to scam vulnerable victims out of money.
Targets are being promised a £6.5million share of the mega-rich couple’s fortune in the ailing scammer.
One victim, Glen Seeber, 67, allegedly received an email from Adrian claiming he had won a megadollar prize from the couple divorced after raising £148million.
The questionable message, sent from a Russian address, said: “My wife and I have won the biggest EuroMillions lottery prize of £148 million.
“We have just started our charity donation and will be giving a cash donation of £6,500,000.00 to 5 lucky individuals and 10 charities from all corners of the world.”
The suspicious Mr Seeber googled the couple, found out they had split up – and then took to Facebook to warn others not to be tricked into giving out their personal details.
He wrote: “This is just cruel.
“Clearly the divorced Bayfords are not acting together to give away £6.5million to strangers.”
The crooks also claimed that they got his address from “Google Management Team”.
Panama-based author Seeber added, “That Russian idiot sending the emails is definitely NOT Gillian or Adrian Bayford.”
Gillian from Dundee and her then partner Adrian won the life-changing prize money in 2012.
But the hurricane cost her marriage and Gillian moved back to Scotland from Suffolk where she set up a property company.
We told last week how Adrian, 53, was forced to cancel a rock festival on land at his £12million Cambridgeshire mansion due to objections.
