Recipients of the lottery scam email message should delete it, and recipients who have already sent their information should be careful next time because the cyber-criminals will use that information in an attempt to scam them. Once cyber-criminals or scammers have received their potential victims’ information, they will continue to call or send them messages, in an attempt to scam them.
