Lottery Scam Email:
"
Free Lotto"
Kevin J. Aronin
Chairman & CEO , PlasmaNet Inc

FreeLotto says they aren't sending out the scam email below (see this page on the Free Lotto / PlasmaNet website).  And for more information about  "FreeLotto" see this page. Either way, we suggest you avoid anything to do with "Free Lotto" and PlasmaNet.

While the email below is most probably the work of AFF scammers in Nigeria, so-called "free" lotteries always have a price for you to pay.  Often, it is opening the door to spam and a huge amount of advertising, many of them scams.

If you have signed up with Free Lotto and have any experiences or opinions to share, please tell us about them!

 


Example of excerpted portions of the "Free Lotto" email

 

Dear John Doe,
