      The scammers are operating in countries where it is hard to apprehend them. And, email addresses and telephone numbers are virtual, meaning, they are not tied to a physical address or location. So, the owners can be anywhere in the world, which makes it hard to track them.

      You may have registered on some fake website using your email address, created by scammers to harvest your email address. Or, people that you have sent email messages, may have gotten their computers infected with malware that searched their computers, found your email address in their inboxes and send it to spammers.

      Also, if you post your email address in open forums and other websites, it can be found by spambots, which are software used by spammers to search the internet for email addresses.

    remove

    • August 13, 2015 at 11:00 AM by info

      They start off by getting your personal information. Then, they use that information to trick you into sending money, which they claim is needed, in order for you to collect your winnings.

      Getting people's personal information is very important to the scammers, because it makes their scams more convincing. Contacting and providing people with their personal information, will make them trust the people who have contacted them.

    I just received a similar letter from the same person (James Kupula, jameskupula@collector.org, jameskupula@live.com) except that mine is for the New York Lottery. Since I never even entered the lottery, I knew it was a fraud.

    The address given on the header is NY Lottery, 15 Beaver Street, NYC Ref: EAASL/941OYI/SHYN, Batch: 12/25/0034, Website: www.nylottery.ny.gov

    The Letter reads as follows and is near identical to the one above so full of red flags. The same ticket and reference numbers are used. How could the NY Lottery have the same numbers as Google? BUT, there is also an error: note that the office was changed to Watford, UK (from South Africa above) but it still says remit to South Africa. The Controller General (of the US Lottery on both, Not NY)changed from a Barbara Moore to a David Mark. Also, Google is not part of any offical US Lottery system.:
