    I have not been asked for money to collect the so called Coca cola price of 1 million 500 prize, but they did say I should open a bank account and provide information for that account so the check can be deposited. I assume this could be a scam but not sure since I did enter such a contest. If I give them my bank account information what is the danger to me if this is a scam?

      There is no danger giving out your bank account number. But, the scammers will subsequently ask you to send money, or send you a fake check, ask you to cash it, take your share and send the rest to them via MoneyGram, Western Union or other money transfer services. But, the check will bounce, you will be responsible for the cash you have taken, fees for processing the check, and you may get arrested for fraud.

    How is it possible with our technology . These scams cannot be traced back to source

      It can be traced back to the source, but the cyber-criminals will quickly move to another location, especially to developing countries, where there is little or no law against cyber-crime activities.
