Beware! Its a Cyber World: BRITISH CANADIAN LOTTERY BC-49
Today, I received following Lottery Winning Notification from Mr. Tross Brian; while I had never participated in any lottery draw.The link given in the mail is a valid link of website: Canada.com Lottery Results with the same winning number in front of BC 49; But I never participated in any type of lottery in my whole life. The screen shot of the website is given below.
Clearly, its a lottery scam to cheat innocent internet users and to steal personal information of the recipients for bad intents in the future.
This is a scam like many others in the form of Lottery Winning Notifications.
