The lottery scammers trick potential victims into sending them money by claiming the potential victims are winners in the bogus lottery. Once the potential victims send their money, which the lottery scammers will claim is for taxes or other fees, they will disappear, leaving the victims broke, angry and depressed. This is why online users never send money to anyone to claim a lottery prize. This is because legitimate lottery companies do not request money, taxes, personal or financial information from their winners.
Victims of the lottery scam should report it to the police, although there is little or nothing they can do because the lottery scammers are operating in foreign countries where it is difficult to apprehend them.
Remember, once you are asked to send money, personal or financial information in order to collect a lottery prize, it is the first sign that some lottery scammers are attempting to trick you into sending them your hard-earned money or information.
