The "AT&T Int'l New Year Award in USA" Scam
Your Number has Won you One Million USD from AT&T Int'l New Year Award in USA,to claim,send your details to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The fake email message is being sent out to potential victims by lottery scammers to trick them into believing they are winners in the so-called "2019 AT&T Int'l Draw" promotion. The scammers make the scam more convincing by claiming the potential victims were selected randomly through a computer ballot system, therefore, no participation was needed.
If the potential victims respond to the fake lottery email message, the scammers will respond asking them to send personal information in order to collect their so-called prize. Once the information has been sent, the scammers will ask the potential victims to send money, which they will claim is for taxes, processing fees, delivery fee, or some other fee. If the potential victims send the money, the lottery scammers will take it and disappear. The victims, on the other hand, will not receive the prize or money that they were promised and will be a few hundreds or thousands of dollars broke.
This is why online users should never send money or personal information to anyone who claims that they are winners in some so-called lottery. Legitimate lottery companies do not ask their winners to send money or personal information in order to collect their prizes.
