Lottery scams: Spot them to better avoid them

In its most classic form, the lottery scam is an advance fee fraud that started in 2004 and is mainly carried out by Yahoo boys.. They try to make you believe that you have won a lottery in which you did not even participate.The recovery of the funds (obviously non-existent) is conditioned to the payment of taxes and various fees.

Mainly spread by e-mail, this scam regularly displays brands known to the general public (Microsoft, Lotto, Apple Awards...).

More recently and especially on social networks, the lottery scam can take another form: a lottery is used as a pretext to direct you to a fake contest. Once you have paid a few euros, you will find yourself involved in a hidden subscription scam.

On this page you will find many examples of lottery scams.
