Beware of "Facebook Group Email Addresses" Lottery Scams

Facebook users who have received messages like the one below," which claim that they are winners in the Facebook email address lottery, are asked to delete them. They should also not follow the instructions in them. This is because the messages are lottery scams sent by scammers to trick Facebook users into believing that they have won some so-called Facebook Group lottery.

The scammers will then ask Facebook users to send money, which they will claim is for taxes, fees, or for some form of charges, in order to claim their prizes. But, there is no such Facebook lottery or promotion. And, once the lottery scammers receive their victims' money, they will disappear, leaving the victims broke, fustrated and depress. Some of the lottery scammers may continue to scam the same victims by telling them some bogus story, in order to convince them to send more money.
