Beware of "Samsung Mobile Company Compensation" Scam

The fake email message below, which claims that the recipients will receive thousands of dollars in compensation from Samsung, European Union, Vittorio Foundation (ITALY), is a scam that is being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims. There is no Samsung Mobile Company Award, and recipients of the fake email message should not respond to it or follow the instructions in it. Remember, every month, lottery scammers send out thousands of lottery scamming email messages in an attempt to trick the recipients into thinking they have won the lottery. Once potential victims respond to the fake lottery scamming email messages, they will be asked by the lottery scammers to send thousands of dollars, which the scammers will claim are for taxes and other fees that the potential victims must pay in order for them to receive their so-called lottery prizes. But, once the lottery scammers receive the money sent by their victims, they will disappear, leaving the victims disappointed, frustrated and thousands of dollars broke.

    I also got this type of email mentioning that I have won ABSA ATM CARD AWARD For my mastercard. The address was 170, main street , Johennesberg. That also offered two delivery options through INTROX COURIER SERVICE asking for money.

    Is that also a fake email?
    How can they get our information like this?

    Thank you for acknowledging us
    Even the ABSA BANK also doesnt know about this
