Sample Lottery Scam Email: CASH-OUT LOTTO BV
"CONTACT
DR DAVE SKOTT in the CASH-OUT PLAZA in Amsterdam"

I've been to Amsterdam many times, but somehow, I don't recall ever seeing the "CASH-OUT PLAZA". Probably because it doesn't exist! The Cash-Out Lotto email is another obvious scam

In addition to the usual clues, notice the terrible writing, misspellings, and worse. The sentences don't even make sense.  Hardly what a professional (i.e., real) lottery would do. 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.

Common signs that it is a scam:

  • The recipient "won" without buying a ticket (so where does the money come from?)

  • "For security reasons" you're not allowed to talk to anyone about it (especially the police or consumerfraudreporting.org!) - which ought to be odd since lotteries thrive on publicity!
