Beware of Chevron Texaco Lottery or Promotion Scams
July 15, 2016
Online users, beware of Chevron promotion and lottery scams, like the ones below, which are being sent by lottery scammers. The promotion and lottery scams claim that the recipients have won or have been awarded thousands of U.S dollars, and are asked to send their names, addresses, mobile numbers, nationalities or other personal information in order to claim or receive their so-called prizes. But, the information requested is what scammers need in order to trick their potential victims into sending money in order to claim so-called lottery prizes. Therefore, recipients of Chevron promotion or lottery email messages claiming that they should send their personal information or money, should delete the messages and not follow the instructions in them.

Legitimate companies will never ask their winners to send money in order to claim their prizes, and will never request personal and financial information via email messages. Lottery scamming is a big business, and scammers are working hard to make their scams appear real or legitimate. Therefore, recipients of email or other messages should not quickly send requested information or follow instructions in the messages before doing their research.
