Beware of the "2018 Yahoo Email" Lottery Scams

There is no "2018 Yahoo" lottery. Therefore, online users who have received the fraudulent e-mail below or others like it, which claims that they are winners in the 2018 Yahoo Email lottery draws are asked not to follow the instructions in it. This is because the email is a lottery scam. The fake email message is being sent by cyber-criminals or lottery scammers, and not by Yahoo! Yahoo will never ask their users to send their personal information via an email message. And, sending your personal information to those cyber-criminals will only help them rip you off. Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by scammers to trick their potential victims into sending their personal information and money.

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.
