BEWARE OF LOTTERY SCAMS

Rate this Entry

Scams are seemingly as old as email and the green card lottery scam is nothing new. But it never hurts to remind people that the only notification of winning the lottery will be one that is mailed, not emailed, by the US Department of State. I don't need to get in to all of the things wrong with the attached document because it is enough to know that since it was emailed, its fraudulent.

    Greg,
    They were using the official seal of USCIS? Can't the USCIS sue these people? If finding them is difficult, I would suggest looking at the ad at the bottom of the email. That would lead to them.

    These people are usually hard to get since they're often in a certain country in the northwest coast of Africa.

    That's a very good educational resource, and a very funny site too:
