Lottery Scam Email:
Free Lotto International
"Free Lotto International" is another perfectly innocuous name for a scam
lottery. Frankly, it amazes us that anyone would believe that there is a lottery
so generically named, and that they would pick winners from email address lists.
We have one simple question for these gullible fools: Since no one buys a
ticket, where would the lottery's money for prizes come from... and why?
Notice the gibberish writing,
excessive use of CAPITAL letters, etc. Note the other clues to an obvious fraud that we
have highlighted in the
letter; keep confidential, selected by a random computer lottery of email
addresses, use of free hotmail/yahoo email accounts, etc.
