Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Here is yet another typical scam lottery winning notification.
Below is another example of a fake lottery. From this pathetic scam, we can see that the conman obviously didn't pay attention in school, as his spelling, grammar, punctuation and sentence structure are dismal. Heck, he even makes up words!
Don't be an imbecile: There is no such thing as a legitimate lottery that will notify you by email; especially when you didn't buy a ticket from them!
