Take a few seconds and try to imagine that one of these lottery notifications where actually legitimate. Imagine winning 2.5 million dollars from a e-mail collecting service that had harvested your e-mail address from the web, and then just wanted to hand out all that cash to you.
Yeah. Pretty hard to believe, isn’t it? Especially if they didn’t even know your email address, as is the case with the below notification from the Loterie Nationale, ”Mrs. Wendy Johnson” and ”Peter van Dijk”.
I can’t help but wonder how many of these e-mails these lottery scammers send out in order to get enough gullable winners to start paying them registration fees? In one of these scams they where after 120 dollars, in another they wanted 20,000 just for registration and courier services.
