Sharing Daily Discoveries About Personal Finance And Business Topics

Fake Online Lottery Scam

It seems like every other day I appear to be the winner of some lottery jackpot that I’ve never heard of. This one says that I won a pool jackpot of £880,000.00. Of course, the real goal as usual is to try and get as much personal information about you as possible. To disguise itself as a legitimate prize, they put in all this fluff in regards to terms and conditions to claim the winnings in order to make it sound legit to the unsuspecting reader. The funny thing I always found with these lottery scams is the e-mail address that you are directed to reply to. For an organization that is apparently giving away so much money, you’d think that they could afford to get their own e-mail address as oppose to using free web based ones.
