Security And Fraud
At People's Postcode Lottery, we take security very seriously. If you are unsure about any communication you receive, please contact us on 0808 109 8765 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to advise.
To find out if your postcode has been a winner, you can visit our Draw Results page and search your postcode in our winners map.
In common with other reputable companies, we are aware that scammers may use our brand to defraud innocent individuals. We have provided some tips and examples of things to watch out for to make sure you can spot any fake communication claiming to be from us, but if you are ever unsure just get in touch with our team on 0808 109 8765.
- Remember legitimate lotteries will never ask you to pay anything to receive your winnings or to keep your win a secret.
- If you haven't bought a ticket, you can't be a winner and you can only win a prize which has been advertised.
- Even if an email or letter appears to be from a company you know, contact them via another method to confirm they sent it.
On the first Wednesday of every month, we carry out ten draws. For each draw, there is a set of prizes announced over the week from Saturday to Friday. The draw is performed in the presence of an independent adjudicator who verifies the accuracy and transparency of the process and confirms the winning postcodes.
Only playing postcodes are entered into the draws, so there are guaranteed winners and never any rollovers. As playing postcodes are entered into every set of draws, players can win more than once.
How We Protect You
Ensuring data and personal information is protected and managed securely is incredibly important to us.
In March 2018, People's Postcode Lottery was assessed by BSI and awarded the data protection standard BS10012 – one of the first companies in the UK to do so. This means we have been recognised for taking a best practice approach when acquiring, storing, processing and sharing personal data. People's Postcode Lottery is also ISO20071 accredited, which recognises that we maintain the highest security standards.
When we are talking to you on the phone, whether we call you or you call us, we will always ask you at least two security questions so we can make sure we are speaking to the right person before disclosing any information about your account.
