Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Below is another example of a fake lottery; this one from the so-called "Inter-European Email Award Centre". This one is especially entertaining, as it is an appallingly obvious and pathetic attempt at scamming. We have highlighted obvious clues that it is a scam in the letter; such as: spelling mistakes, poor grammar, poor punctuation, asks to keep it confidential, the winner was selected by a random computer lottery, the lottery uses a free hotmail/yahoo email account, etc.
