Therefore, recipients of email messages claiming that they are winners in the same lottery or promotion asked not to follow the instructions in them. The "Online Sweepstakes World Wide Web Computer Generated" lottery scam is being sent by scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money for a lottery that doesn't exist.

Please continue below.

Remember, lottery scammers make money by asking their potential victims to send money for so-called processing fees, taxes, delivery or courier fees. If the money is sent by gullible online users, the scammers will take it and disappear, without delivery the so-called lottery prize they have promised.
