"Yahoo Award Notification" Lottery Scams

There is no "Yahoo Award Notification" or Yahoo lottery. Therefore, recipients of email messages claiming that they are winners in such a lottery should delete them and should not follow the instructions in them. The fake email messages are being sent by lottery scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and will subsequently ask them to send money to receive their so-called prizes. But, remember, Yahoo! will never ask their users to send their personal information via an email message. And, sending personal information to those lottery scammers will only help them rip you off.

Yahoo Award Notification Lottery Scams

For online users who have already been tricked by the fraudulent e-mail, please be careful next time. This is because the cyber-criminals/scammers will contact those online users, using the information they have submitted, in an attempt to scam them.

    My comment is that how long are we going to be scammed and how long are people's / company names going to be tarnished because it looks as if they are partners in crime because wrong things were happening years back and criminals remain unpunished. As of money taken every bank account used by anybody has his/her I.D numbers meaning it is traceable. So why don't Interpol do It's duties and put this fraudster where they belong and money be given back to the victims, easy.l'm a victim of Cornerstone/ Marissa Meyer/ Lotto whereby the so-called Dr. Dan John's name is wrongly used by the so-called Michael Miller making him look like an accomplice because he's name has been used years back and the culprits are walking free and continuing with their dirty tricks.
