International Lottery in the Fight Against Ebola Scam
Oct 23, 2015
The email message below which claims the recipients are approved for thousands of dollars in the fight against Ebola, is a lottery scam. There is no international lottery that does not require winners to buy tickets, and there is no international lottery with an annual free draw, created to specifically to help in the fight against Ebola. The fake email message should not be responded to, especially with personal or financial information. Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by scammers to trick their potential victims into stealing their personal information and sending money for fake lottery draws or sweepstakes prizes. Remember, never send your personal information to anyone in an email message or send money to someone who contacted you via email message.
