Lottery Scam Email:
SURF LOTTERY INTERNATIONAL
If you received an email from "Walter Jones" of
Surf Lottery International", you might look at the email more
carefully. Notice that "Albert's" email address is a free German Yahoo
account, while his phone number is in the Netherlands. That's just the start of
many typical scammer errors. And of course it is simply not possible to win by
having an email address in an "automated computer ballot"... because no such
thing exists. AN NO company, anywhere on this planet, is going to give away
money randomly. It's just plain stupid to believe
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; selected by a random computer lottery of email
addresses, use of free hotmail/yahoo email accounts, etc. Also , notice the
similarity to this scam
