Protect Yourself and Report the Latest Frauds, Scams, Spams, Fakes, Identify Theft Hacks and Hoaxes
Ah, another "computer ballot system" lottery scam. If you haven't figured it out by now, we'll repeat; there is NO SUCH THING as a "computer draw of email addresses" to select lottery winners. Ask yourself why would anyone give money away to strangers based on their email address. You'd have to be begging to be a victim to believe this one.
Notice the gibberish writing, excessive use of CAPITAL letters, etc. Note the other clues to an obvious fraud that we have highlighted in the letter; keep confidential, selected by a random computer lottery of email addresses, use of free hotmail/yahoo email accounts, etc.
