Beware of MasterCard Lottery and Promotion Scams

Beware of MasterCard Lottery and Promotion Scams

The email message below with the subject "MasterCard Prize Winner," is just one of the thousands of lottery scams being sent by cybercriminals to trick their potential victims into sending them money, by claiming the recipients of the fake email messages are winners of thousands or millions of dollars. The cyber crooks or lottery scammers will claim the money they ask the recipients or so-called lottery winners to send, is for delivery fee, taxes or some other fees. But, once the recipients or potential victims send their hard-earned money, the cyber crooks will disappear like a thief in the night.

Please continue reading below.

Remember, there is no MasterCard lottery or promotion that is awarding people thousands or millions of dollars. So, recipients of email messages claiming that they are winners of thousands or millions of dollars in a MasterCard lottery or promotion should delete the email messages.

Also, once you are asked to send your personal or financial information to someone via an email message, or ask to send money in order to receive your so-called lottery prize, these are the first signs that someone is attempting to scam you. Legitimate lottery companies or other companies will never ask their winners, users or customers to send them money in order to collect lottery prizes or to send personal or financial information.
