Beware - There is NO "BBC One National Lottery"

There is no BBC One National Lottery, therefore, online users who have received fake email messages like the one below, which claim that they are winners in the so-called "BBC One National Lottery" are asked to delete them. The fake email messages are being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims to trick them into sending them their personal information. Once the scammers receive their potential victims' information, they will subsequently ask them to send money to receive their so-called lottery prizes. The scammers will claim the money is for taxes, processing, delivery or insurance fees. But, if the scammers receive their potential victims' information and money they will disappear. And, the victims, on the other hand, will not receive the money or lottery prize they were promised.
