Beware of "Your Facebook Profile was Selected as a Lucky Winner" Lottery Scam

Facebook users, be aware of lottery scamming messages like the one below, which are being sent via Facebook messenger claiming that your Facebook profile shows that you were selected as a lucky winner of thousands or millions of dollars. The messages are fakes and are being sent by lottery scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money via Moneygram, Western Union or other money transfer services.

Please continue below.

The "Your Facebook Profile was selected as a Lucky Winner" Lottery Scam

'Your Facebook profile shows that you were selected as a lucky winner of a grand sum of $800,000.00 which your profile was randomly selected through our electronic mail extraction system from our company Samsung for some time now. Are you now ready to make claim'.

Remember, there is no Facebook or Samsung lottery, and once you are asked to send money in order to receive a lottery prize, it is a scam.
