This fake Lotto was sent to me by a reader, who told me :
“I am a 55y/o, widow from the Philippines, I write here to make you know that I’ve just recently received a letter from Mrs. Tina Brown as you can see and read her letter that I forwarded through e-mail. Hoping you can get rid of this kind of scam.”
Sadly, I can’t do anything to stop the scammers writing their emails. But I can help raise awareness so that, hopefully, fewer people get taken in by these scammers.
No organisation anywhere ever runs random email draws or lotteries. They are all scams. This scammer wants your money and will try to get you to send money to claim your non-existent win.
