WESTERN AUSTRALIA:  The Government of Western Australia, Consumer Protection is urging Western Australians to ignore emails from an overseas betting agency which is not licensed in Australia and entices people to buy “Oz Lotto” tickets with promises of higher prize money.  An investigation by Consumer Protection’s WA ScamNet has revealed that Oz Lotto Service (www.ozlottoservice.com) is one of many websites operated by Ad Management Ltd and Net Group NGL. The companies are both registered in Malta but the website is registered in Costa Rica and hosted in the Bahamas.
