Beware of "Apple iPhone Lotto" Scams Being Sent By Lottery Scammers

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

There is no "Apple iPhone Lotto" that is giving away thousands or millions of dollars. Therefore, email messages like the one below, which claim that the recipients are lottery winners in a so-called "Apple iPhone Lotto" are scams. The email messages were 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.

A Sample of an"Apple iPhone Lotto" Lottery Scam

Your Mobile was selected 750,000Euro Iphone Lotto Email:appleiphonepromo31@gmail.com

Recipients of the lottery scam email messages should delete them, and recipients who have already sent their information should be careful next time, because the cyber-criminals will use that information in an attempt to scam them. Once cyber-criminals or scammers have received their potential victims’ information, they will continue to call or send them messages, in an attempt to scam them.
