Beware of South Carolina Education Free-Ticket Lottery Scam

The email message below, which claims that the recipients are lottery winners of the South Carolina Education Lottery free-ticket draws of 2017, is a lottery scam. There is no such lottery. Every month, thousands of those email messages are sent out by lottery scammers, to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and money, to collect so-called lottery prizes. Always remember to verify the authenticity of a South Carolina Lottery prize or award by contacting them at their website at www.nc-educationlottery.org, and clicking on the "Contact" link. Also, never respond to an email message claiming that you are a lottery winner with your personal or financial information. Legitimate lottery companies do not request personal or financial information via email message, and will never ask winners to send money or financial information in order to collect their prizes.
