Lottery Scam - "Certificate of Ownership by Facebook Payment Department"
The Fake “Certificate of Ownership by Facebook Payment Department”
Once the lottery scammers have convinced their potential victims into believing they are lottery winners, they will ask them to send money, which they will claim is for taxes, processing fees or some other fees that the potential victims have to pay in order to receive their so-called lottery prizes. But, once the money is sent, the lottery scammers will disappear without a trace with their victims’ money, or some will stick around and continue to milk as much money as possible from their victims.
Remember, never send money, personal or financial information to anyone, who contacted you via email messages, social media messages, text messages, telephone calls, or other means of communications, claiming that you are a lottery winner. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send them money, personal or financial information in order to receive their prizes.
