I keep getting hundreds of emails claiming I have won the lottery, received a donation or inheritance and I should send my information to email address firstname.lastname@example.org. I know if this is a scam and is being used by online scammers to steal personal information that can be sold on the dark web. Once on the dark web, cybercriminals will use it to trick their potential victims into sending them money. But remember, it seems too good to be true, it usually is. And, once you are asked to send money in order to receive a donation, inheritance, or lottery prize, it is a scam.
This is how scammers get paid. Once they convince you to send money, they will take it and disappear. And, you will never receive what you were promised, and you will be out of the hundreds or thousands of dollars you sent to the cyber thieves.
