Fraud - "Viber Powerball" is a Lottery Scam Created by Scammers

Would you share this article with others?

There is no "Viber Powerball" lottery. Therefore, recipients of messages claiming that they are winners in the same lottery 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.

But, once the scammers receive their potential victims' information they will sell it to other scammers who will constantly contact the potential victims in an attempt to scam them. And, if the potential victims send their money to the scammers, they will take it and disappear leaving the victims depressed, and hundreds or thousands of dollars broke.

Remember, once you are asked to send personal information and money in order to receive a lottery, promotion or an award prize, it is a scam. This is because legitimate companies do not ask their winners to send personal information via an email message or send money in order to collect prizes.

    Dear Madam,

    The only reason why they request for that payment is because of the issuance policy that covers the winning.

    Kindly proceed with the instruction and make payment and your funds will be credited to your account.
