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

www.nuson.net

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

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

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.nuson.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.

    Received one of these text messages this morning in Adelaide, South Australia.

    Sadly, knew it must be a scam, so ignored it.

    I received the SMS today ... it appeared to come from an Australian mobile phone number but the "prize" was in pounds

    I got the same text, definitely a scam. Going to just ignore it.

  • October 30, 2018 at 9:53 AM by an anonymous user from: Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

    I knew it was too good to be true. I even sent an email to question the authenticity of this message. I certainly don't remember entering in any sweepstake lottery. I filled in the details they asked for. All I can say about this is that in my experience, bad things happen to bad people.
