Fraud - "Samsung UK Award" is a Lottery Scam Being Sent by Scammers

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

The "Samsung UK Award" email message below, which claims that the recipients are lucky winners is a scam that is being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims. There is no "Samsung UK Award", and recipients of the fake email message should not respond to it or follow the instructions in it.

Please continue reading below.

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.
