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.
