A scam alert


Hi there!  It’s Donna and thank you for allowing me to come into your inbox.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to my scam alert.


A scam alert

Emails telling you that you just won a huge lotto


Talk about being taken in and this is one of the most common scams and these scammers play on your emotions and are depending on you to fall hard for this type of email.


You are congratulated on winning a huge lottery somewhere in Europe.

You are told how much you have won and it is usually in either Uros or Sterling pounds.

You are told that you need to collect your prize within a certain time frame but you need to provide details of your email address in order to be able to collect your lotto prize.


Simply delete this email for it is a fraud.


What happens if you have a mental lapse and reply to this type of email?  Well; it will be all over before you know it.


Much sooner than later, unknown persons will be hacking into your system and it would only be a matter of time before they take control of your hardware and then as they say the rest will be history.


That’s it from me for this week.
