Lottery Scam - "2017/2018 MasterCard Users Award"

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

There is no "2017/2018 MasterCard Users Award." Therefore, MasterCard users who have received the lottery scamming email message below, which claims they have won or been awarded thousands of dollars in the MasterCard and Microsoft Mega Jackpot, should delete the message. The fake message is being sent by lottery scammers to trick MasterCard users into sending them their personal information. Once the scammers have their potential victims’ personal information, they will ask them to send advance fees in order to claim their so-called lottery prizes. Once the scammers received their victims’ money, they will disappear or attempt to get more money from their victims.

It is important to remember that legitimate companies will never ask their lottery winners to send their personal information via an email message or send money in order to receive their prizes. Therefore, if online or internet users are asked to do the same, that should be the first indicator that someone is attempting to scam them.
