Beware of "ICC Cricket Lottery Online" Scams

Beware of "ICC Cricket Lottery Online" Scams

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

There is no "ICC Cricket Lottery Online." Therefore, recipients of the email message below, which claims that they are lottery winners in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket World Cup National Lottery Prize Award, ask asked to delete it because it is a lottery scam. Every month, thousands of those email messages are sent out by lottery scammers, to trick their potential victims into sending them their personal information and money to collect so-called lottery prizes. Remember, never respond to an email message which claims that you are a lottery winner with your personal or financial information. Legitimate lottery companies do not request personal or financial information via an email message, and will never ask winners to send money, financial or personal information in order to collect their prizes.

Please continue reading below.

Also, there is no mobile ICC international lottery, promotion, or bonanza. Therefore, recipients of email messages claiming they are winners, should delete them and not follow the instructions in them. Once lottery scammers receive their victims' money, they will take it and disappear and the victims will not receive the lottery prizes that they were promised. This is why online users should never send money to collect lottery prizes and when they are asked to do so in order to collect lottery prizes. And, when asked, this should be the first sign that lottery scammers somewhere in cyberspace are attempting to steal their hard-earned money by tricking them into believing they winners in some so-called lottery.

Always remember to verify the authenticity of an International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket lottery, award or promotion by contacting them at their legitimate website at www.icc-cricket.com, Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/icc/ or Twitter at www.twitter.com/icc/.
