Beware of "UK Samsung Company Empowerment Program" Lottery Scam

Online users who have received e-mail messages like the one below, which claim they are winners of the "Samsung Company Empowerment Program" are asked not to follow the instructions in them because they are lottery scams. There is no such Samsung lottery and the fake email messages are being sent by lottery scammers. Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by lottery scammers to trick their potential victims into stealing their personal information and subsequently asking them to send money in order to receive their so-called lottery prize. Sending your personal information to these cyber-criminals will only help them rip you off or steal your money. Therefore, online users who have received the same email messages are asked to delete them.
