Beware of "Western Union Holdings On-line Award" Lottery Scams

There is no "Western Union Holdings On-line Award" or Western Union lottery, therefore, recipients of email messages like the one below, which claim that they have been awarded millions of dollars in the Western Union Holdings On-line Award should delete the email messages. This is because 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 money to claim their so-called lottery prize. But, once the potential victims send their personal information, and money, which scammers will claim is for taxes, insurance, processing or delivery fee, the scammers will take their money and disappear.

Please continue below.
