The Lottery Scam, is another frequent visitor in my mailbox.
“Hooorrayyy! You’ve won the lottery. Millions of dollars are headed your way, all you need to do, is provide your bank details.”
Man, how lucky can you get? What are the odds of actually winning the big price in the lottery?! Especially when you don’t even recall ever having bought a ticket! Hmm, how did that happen?
Well, sorry mate, it DIDN’T! You are being scammed, and how strange it may seem, there are actually a lot of people falling for this one.
Why? Because, it’s the dream of being able to quit your job, financial freedom, having the opportunity to do exactly what you want. What if all I need to do is just click this button!
Don’t do it! Remember these words: If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Repeat them in your mind, and don’t you ever forget.
Don’t read, just delete!
If you have a junk or spam folder, it usually catches these scams, but if you’re like me, you’re probably occasionally browsing through your junk folder, just to see, if anything of value accidentally got caught.
If you see a mail that congratulates you on winning the lottery, DON’T open it, in fact, you’ll be best off just deleting it!
Thank you for reading, and be careful out there in cyberspace!
