The "LinkedIn Easter Promo 2018" email message below, which claims that the recipients are lottery winners of a LinkedIn lottery, is a lottery scam. There is no such lottery. 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. Also, never respond to an email message that 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 or financial information in order to collect their prizes.
