[ THE YAHOO / MSN LOTTERY | FAKE LOTTO SCAM ]

The e-mail here is a typical example of fraudulent lottery announcements sent out each day by 419 scammers. In this instance, they're using the Yahoo / MSN Lottery as their ploy. This lottery doesn't exist at all.

The fake lottery scam is a very popular type of advance fee scam. In reality, no one ever wins a lottery that they've never entered. No one's e-mail address wins a lottery. No legitimate lottery requires you to pay fees to claim a prize beyone the price of a ticket. If you've received an e-mail even remotely similar to the ones on this page or if you have arrived at this page via an internet search resulting from an e-mail that you received, YOU HAVE RECEIVED A SCAM E-MAIL!

This is just one example of the many hundreds of advance fee fraud e-mails received each day here at 419BAITER headquarters. They're all 100% pure B.S.

There are many different types of 419 scam (examples) but they all promise you something (fortune, job with salary / commision, low-interest loan, lottery prize, cheap gold dust / diamonds, work visa, etc.) in return for a small 'fee' or some kind of remittance. Of course, there is no fortune, no job, no loan, no prize to be had. It's just a ploy to get you to willingly send them money.

 

This is an internet scam! Do NOT send the scammers money for any reason.

It's important to note that any real people and / or legitimate organizations whose names and other details are mentioned in these scam e-mails have absolutely no connection with this scam!

Scammers never use their real names.
They frequently take on the identity of real people to help them convince you that they are genuine.

To see what this site is really all about, visit The Games section.

 

 

NOTE TO DUMBASS SPAMMERS: My scam e-mail filtering system is pretty good but it isn't perfect. Occasionally a regular spam e-mail will get mistakenly published here as a 419 scam. This is inadvertent. If you are a spammer and you don't wish to have your crap mistakenly published on this website as a 419 advance fee scam, the solution is simple. Don't mail your crap to harvested e-mail addresses.
