Beware of "Verizon Wireless Communications and Viber" Lottery Scam

There is no "Verizon Wireless Communications and Viber" lottery or award. Therefore, recipients of messages claiming that they are winners in the same lottery or award programme asked not to follow the instructions in them. They should just delete the messages because they are fakes that being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims. The scammers trick their potential victims into sending them their information by claiming that they are winners in a lottery that doesn't exist. Once they have received the information, they will subsequently ask their potential victims to send money in order to receive their so-called lottery prize.

Please continue below.

But, once the scammers receive their potential victims' information they will sell it to other scammers who will constantly contact the potential victims in an attempt to scam them. And, if the potential victims send their money to the scammers, they will take it and disappear leaving the victims depressed, and hundreds or thousands of dollars broke.

Remember, once you are asked to send personal information and money in order to receive a lottery, promotion or an award prize, it is a scam. This is because legitimate companies do not ask their winners to send personal information via an email message or send money in order to collect prizes.
