The "Yahoo! Asia Pte. LTD Asia-Pacific" Lottery Scam

There is no "Yahoo! Asia Pte. LTD Asia-Pacific" lottery or lotto. Therefore, if you have received fraudulent or fake e-mails like the one below, which claim that you are a winner in such a lottery, please do not follow the instructions in it. This is because the email is a lottery scam. There is no Yahoo Email lottery and the fake email message was sent by cyber-criminals/scammers, and not by Yahoo! Yahoo will never ask their users to send their personal information via an email message. And, sending your personal information to those cyber-criminals will only help them rip you off. Every month, thousands of these email messages are sent out by scammers to trick their potential victims into sending their personal information and money.

The Yahoo! Asia Pte. LTD Asia-Pacific Lottery Scam

For online users who have already been tricked by the fraudulent e-mail, please be careful next time. This is because the cyber-criminals/scammers will contact those online users, using the information they have submitted, in an attempt to scam them.
