Fraud - "Samsung USA Promotion Mobile Company Award" is a Lottery Scam

The email message below, which claims that the recipients are lucky winners of the Samsung USA Promotion Mobile Company Award, is a scam that is being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims. There is no Samsung Mobile Company Award, and recipients of the fake email message should not respond to it or follow the instructions in it. Remember, every month, lottery scammers send out thousands of lottery scamming email messages in an attempt to trick the recipients into thinking they have won the lottery. Once potential victims respond to the fake lottery scamming email messages, they will be asked by the lottery scammers to send thousands of dollars, which the scammers will claim are for taxes and other fees that the potential victims must pay in order for them to receive their so-called lottery prizes. But, once the lottery scammers receive the money sent by their victims, they will disappear, leaving the victims disappointed, frustrated and thousands of dollars broke.

Please continue below.
