Beware of "World Lottery Association" (WLA) Lotto Scams

There is no "World Lottery Association" lotto game, therefore, recipients of messages like the one below, which claim that they are winners in such a lottery are asked to delete the messages, and should not follow the instructions in them. This is because the messages are fakes and are being sent by lottery scammers to trick their potential victims into sending them personal information and money, by claiming they need to do in order to collect their so-called lottery prize.

Please continue below.

Remember, the World Lottery Association is a member-based organization to advance the interests of state-authorized lotteries. They grant accreditation to lottery organizations, they do not do the actual lotteries.
