Beware of "Apple Promotion 2018" Lottery Scam

Would you share this article with others?

There is no "Apple Promotion 2018" lottery that is giving away thousands or millions of dollars. Therefore, the email message below, which claims that the recipients are lottery winners in a so-called Apple 2018 lottery or promotion, is a scam. The email message was NOT sent by Apple, but by cyber-criminals/scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money or personal information in order to collect their so-called lottery prize. Remember, never send your information or send money to anyone who claims that you have won the lottery. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send money or send their personal information via email or text message.

Recipients of the lottery scam email message should delete it, and recipients who have already sent their information, should be careful next time, because the cyber-criminals will use that information in an attempt to scam them. Once cyber-criminals or scammers have received their potential victims’ information, they will continue to call or send them messages, in an attempt to scam them.
