Beware of "Apple iPhone Company 2018 Charity Promo" Lottery Scam

There is no "Apple iPhone Company 2018 Charity Promo" that is giving away thousands or millions of dollars. Therefore, the email message below, which claims that the recipients are lottery winners in the same so-called lottery or promotion, is a scam. The email message was NOT sent by Apple, but by cyber-criminals/scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money or personal information in order to collect their so-called lottery prize. Remember, never send your information or send money to anyone who claims that you have won the lottery. Legitimate lottery companies will never ask their winners to send money or send their personal information via email or text message.
