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.
