The email message below, which claims that the recipients are lottery winners of the North Carolina Education Lottery and LinkedIn Online Lotto email address free-ticket draws of the 2016 Promotion Award, is a lottery scam. There is no such lottery. Every month, thousands of those email messages are sent out by lottery scammers, to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and money, to collect so-called lottery prizes. Always remember to verify the authenticity of a North Carolina Lottery prize or award by contacting them at their website at www.nc-educationlottery.org, and clicking on the "Contact" link. Also, never respond to an email message claiming that you are a lottery winner with your personal or financial information. Legitimate lottery companies do not request personal or financial information via an email message, and will never ask winners to send money or financial information in order to collect their prizes.

    The North Carolina Lottery is rigged. How is that 5 to 6 drawings in a row comes up doubles or triple numbers. Its time to rethink playing this Pick 4 game.
