Have you received an email from "Mrs Ruth Fraiser" at "SPONSOR LOTERIJ INTERNATIONAL or Euro Million Lotto or the "Foundation for the Promotion of Software Products (F.P.S.)" telling you that "your
email address won in the second category" or something similar, and to
contact "Peter Hands" to collect your winnings? Is it a lottery? A
sweepstakes? A promotion? Which one is the company? You don't remember buying a ticket and it
says "your email address" won! It's so confusing because it is a
scam. No legitimate, legal lottery notifies winners via email (see footnote) The scammers may
change the names and details, but it is still a scam!
Below is another example of a fake lottery; this email claims to
be from the "SPONSOR LOTERIJ INTERNATIONAL or Euro Million Lotto or the "Foundation for the Promotion of Software Products (F.P.S.)".
