The "United Nations International Lottery" is a Scam

The email message below which claims the recipients are winners in the United Nations International Lottery is a scam or a fake. As a matter of fact, there is no United Nations International lottery. Therefore, recipients of similar messages claiming they are winners in some so-called United Nations International lottery should never respond to the fraudulent email messages with their personal information or financial information, and should never send money to the lottery scammers.

Please continue reading below.

And, do not be fooled by fake "United Nations International Lottery" winning certificates and remember, once you are asked to send personal information or money in order to claim a lottery prize, it is a scam.

    Dear Sir, it is nice that you can publicize all scams but this will not prevent those scammers to go on and on since it is easy and quick to get another email account if the one their are using it is blocked.

    The solution is to go get those people since now the technology help us and put a 30 pounds stone ball attached to their feet and puttem to work in keeping the streets clean and only giving them bread and water for a year time.

    That is a year time for each time they get caught and of course they will be under armed surveillance during their work like in the old times.

      Remember, most of the scammers are operating in countries where it is difficult to locate them.

      With wireless technology everywhere, it is very hard to locate cybercriminals. This is because they can operate from anywhere for a few minutes and quickly move to another location before they can be apprehended.
