Beware of "Apple/iPhone Lottery Inc and Windows Live" Scam

Beware of "Apple/iPhone Lottery Inc and Windows Live" Scam

The email message below, which claims that the recipients are lottery winners in the "Apple/iPhone Lottery Inc and Windows Live" draw is a scam. There is no such lottery. Every month, thousands of those email messages are sent out by lottery scammers to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and money to collect so-called lottery prizes. Remember, never respond to an email message which claims that you are a lottery winner with your personal or financial information. Legitimate lottery companies do not request personal or financial information via an email message, and will never ask winners to send money, financial or personal information in order to collect their prizes.
