Would you share this Article with others?

There is no "Viber's International Balloting Anniversary" lottery. Therefore, recipients of messages claiming that they are winners in the same lottery or award programme asked not to follow the instructions in them. They should just delete the messages because they are fakes that being sent by lottery scammers to their potential victims. The scammers trick their potential victims into sending them their information by claiming that they are winners in a lottery that doesn't exist. Once they have received the information, they will subsequently ask their potential victims to send money in order to receive their so-called lottery prize.

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.

    Hello!

    I have some questions:

    1. How is it possible that my number has come out a winner when I have not played in this lottery?

    2. Then I can not give my confidential data, who guarantees that they will not be used by you?

    3. How do I know if I will get this money?

    Thank you.
