Never buy and send Google Play gift cards to anyone who claims you need to do so in order to receive a lottery prize, donation, inheritance, or promotion. This is because a legitimate lottery or other companies will never ask you to send Google Play gift cards to them.

Only scammers ask their potential victims to send them cards for prizes, which the scammers will redeem for digital content like Apps, Games, Movies or Books, or sell to others for cash. Once the scammers receive the cards, they will take them and disappear, leaving the victims without the prize, donation, or inheritance they were promised.

Remember, once you are asked to send cards or money in order to receive a lottery prize, donation or inheritance, it is a scam,. Do do not be fooled by scammers who steal millions of dollars from their victims every year, by tricking the victims into sending them money for fake lotteries.
