Online users can verify the authenticity of a Panasonic promotion by visiting their legitimate website at: www.panasonic.com and search for the word: "promotion".
The Lottery Scamming "Panasonic Promotions and Claims" Website
Remember, do not be fooled by the lottery scammers who have created the fake promotion in order to lure their potential victims to the fraudulent website (www.panasonicpro.co.uk), by claiming they are winners in the Panasonic Annual LinkedIn Promotions, a lottery that does not exist.
How the Lottery Scam Works?
The lottery scammers will send a message to their potential victims, claiming that they have won the fake lottery or promotion and they can claim their so-called cash prize by visiting the fraudulent website: www.panasonicpro.co.uk. Once the potential victims visit the website, they will be asked for their LinkedIn’s account credentials, which the scammers will steal and use to hijacked their victims' LinkedIn accounts and use them fraudulently. They may ask their potential victims for their personal information, which the scammers will collect and use, or sell to other scammers, for contacting the same potential victims, in an attempt to scam them.
The potential victims will also be asked to send money via money transfer services like Western Union or MoneyGram, which the lottery scammers will claim is for taxes or processing fee. Or, they may be asked to visit phishing websites created by the lottery scammers, where they will be asked to enter their credit card and other financial information, which will be stolen by the same lottery scammers.
Online users who are victims of the "Panasonic Annual LinkedIn Promotions" are asked to contact the police for help. And those who have received messages with so-called instructions for claiming their so-called lottery prizes, are asked to delete them, and not follow the instructions in them.
