Beware of "Yahoo Award Notification" Lottery Scams

Beware of "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.

Please continue reading below.

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.
