BEWARE! Its a Cyber World - - Winning Notification of £710,000 B.B.C LOTTERY DEPARTMENT:
Yesteray, I received following Lottery Winning Notification from Mr. Garry Lee; while I had never participated in any lottery draw.The link given in the mail is a valid link of website: BBC National Lottery Results. But I couldn't find the winning number provided through the mail below.
This is kind of reborn scam as same kind of mail i shared here early in this year. See Here.
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.
