Never send money via the Western Union or MoneyGram, or send personal information, to anyone who claims that you have won some so-called lottery, promotional offer, or has been chosen to receive a donation. This is because the people who are requesting the money or information are scammers, who were able to illegally harvest your telephone number, email address, or other personal information using phishing scams, social media like-farming or like-harvesting scams. Once scammers have gotten your information, they will attempt to convince you that you are a winner in some lottery game or you have been chosen to receive thousands of dollars in donation, and ask you to send them money that they claim are for taxes, delivery or processing fees, in order to receive your so-called prize.
Once you are asked to send money in order to receive some form of prize or donation, without a doubt, it is a scammer attempting to rob you of your hard-earned money. So, don't be fooled, think before sending that little money you have worked so hard for, to some despicable scammer who will live comfortably from your hard work.
