Lottery Scam Email:
Techie Charity Promotion

Another scam lottery, even the name, Techie Charity Promotion, sounds ridiculous.  Another "email address lottery" that receives it's money from taxes and "large corporations"; oh, yeah, right.  Governments and corporations do NOT give away money to people who have an email address.

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.

NB: Kindly indicate your Ticket No. in your reply and also note that this is purely a charity-base promotion.


Typical signs of a scam:

  • The recipient "won" without buying a ticket (so where does the money come from?)

  • "For security reasons" you're not allowed to talk to anyone about it (especially the police or consumerfraudreporting.org!) - which ought to be odd since lotteries thrive on publicity!
