www.dosony.net is a fake "Sony Mobile Sweepstake" website created by lottery scammers, which are being used to trick online users into believing they are winners in some so-called Sony Mobile Sweepstake. The lottery scammers behind the lottery scamming website lure their potential victims to it using email or SMS Text messages, which claim they have won thousands or millions of dollars/pounds, and they should visit either website to claim their so-called prizes.

The Fake "Sony Mobile Sweepstake" Website - www.dosony.net

Once potential victims contact the lottery scammers, thinking they are contacting Sony Mobile Sweepstake, the scammers will ask them to send personal information, and subsequently ask them to send money in order to receive their so-called prizes, which the scammers will claim the money is for taxes or processing fees. They will then ask their potential victims to send the money via Western Union, MoneyGram or other money transfer services. Once the scammers have received their victims’ money, they will disappear, leaving the victim frustrated, depress, and a few hundreds or thousands of dollars broke.

The same lottery scammers may contact their victims and attempt to scam them again using the personal information the victims sent to them, or they may sell their victims’ information to other lottery scammers, who will also attempt to scam the victims.

Therefore, online users are asked not to visit www.dosony.net, or any other websites, which claim they are winners in the Sony Mobile Sweepstake and are asked to send money or personal information in order to receive their so-called prizes.

Note: Some of the names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers or other information in samples on this website may have been impersonated or spoofed.

    "Hi:Your Mobile No is Selected as winner of £1000000 on SONY SWEEPTAKE. Go to

    www.dosony.net to claim. enter Ref: SON083AC . helpline: info.sony@onet.eu."

    That's what I received from them. Convince me that I won such a big prize and even congratulated me on my email. They said I need to claim it immediately. Is so scary. What should I do? Need help.

      It is a scam. If it sounds too good to be true - it usually is!

      Delete the message and forget you ever received it.
