How do you do recognise a Lottery Scam?
Step 1: You receive a letter, email or text message saying you have won a guaranteed prize in a lottery or competition that you did not enter.
Step 2: The sender claims they have identified you as a winner by randomly choosing your email address.
Step 3: Avoid any arrangement with a stranger that asks for up-front payment via money order, wire transfer, or Western Union
Step 4: To claim your prize you are asked to buy a ticket, pay a fee or call a premium rate phone number. Rest assured it will be a scam!
Step 5:If someone asks you to pay money up-front in order to receive a prize or winnings, itís always a scam
Step 6: Read all the terms and conditions of any offer very carefully Ė claims of free or very cheap offers will generally have hidden costs.
Lotto Scam will be written all over it - if you read it thoroughly!
Do an internet search using the name on the letter or email to check for any references to a lotto scam on the Internet.
Typical lottery scams involve sending messages through social media platforms advising recipients that they have won a lottery or competition of some sort. The scam artist will pretend that they are affiliated with the social networking lotto syndicate or some legitimate company to make it appear legal.
