Beware of "Viber International Purple Ballot Award" Lottery Scam

There is no "Viber International Purple Ballot Award" lottery. Therefore, recipients of messages claiming that they are winners in the same lottery or award programme asked not to follow the instructions in them. They should just delete the messages because they are fakes that being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims. The scammers trick their potential victims into sending them their information by claiming that they are winners in a lottery that doesn't exist. Once they have received the information, they will subsequently ask their potential victims to send money in order to receive their so-called lottery prize.
