This person, who claims to be the General Support Manager, has the website www.samsung.com in the signature of the email, but yet the email was sent from the free email provider “inbox.lv”.

Adding the word "samsung" to the email address "samsung_info@inbox.lv", is another trick by these scammers, to have you believe the email is legitimate. But, as I have said before, anyone can create these free email accounts at inbox.lv .
Do not be fooled by persons claiming that they have a registration codes and lottery IDs, if there is nowhere for you to go and verify these codes and IDs.

Never send your personal information, credit card information, or money to anyone who requests it via email message.

If you are asked to send money via Western Union, please be careful. This is the first sign that someone is trying to scam you.

Also, if Samsung is doing a promotion, it should be on their website (www.samsung.com), where you can go and view it.

For a list of legitimate Samsung promotions in your country or area, please go to their promotions web page at http://www.samsung.com/promotions/.
