Beware of Apple 2016 Lottery Promotion Scams

The lottery scam email message below, which claims that the recipients are lottery winners in the Apple 2016 lottery or promotion, is a scam. The email message was NOT sent by Apple and there is no such lottery or promotion. The phishing email message was actually sent by cyber-criminals/scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money or personal information in order to collect their so-called lottery prize. Remember, never send your information or send money to anyone who claims that you have won the lottery. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send money, or send their personal information via email or text message.

Please continue reading below.

      They don't need your number to send you the link, it's a random spam message that goes to to any number that is connected to the system that the link is send to. It could have been anyone anywhere in the world but it was you. So, don't worry if you have not replied to it because they don't know you've got such text.

      You could have submitted your phone number unknowingly on a phishing website that steals phone numbers and other personal. Or, your Smartphone, or a friend's or family member's Smartphone got infected with a spyware that silently stole the phone numbers from the Smartphone's Contacts and send them to the cyber-criminals.
