These social media scams have been going on for awhile now, and this is one of the few I've seen that claims to come from Facebook. Scammers have also misrepresented MySpace, Yahoo, Microsoft, Google, and a few others. I haven't seen a Twitter scam yet, for that matter.
Every single one of the e-mails you get that claim you've "won" millions of dollars are always scams, 100 percent of the time. There are never any exceptions to this rule, ever. Please do not be tempted by these scams, and never wire any cash to the scammers. If you already have, please stop right now.
The so-called "money" does not exist, it never did, and there is virtually no possible way you can get your money back. This entry is linked here, and there are some lottery scam videos located here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank you.
Oh good, I've got another fresh scam that wasn't on my website. It's probably been going around for a little while, though. This one claims you've won the Facebook "Lottery." Just as with all corporations, some may be philanthropists. It depends upon how much extra cash they have. They may give money to charity, but they never give it away to individuals, especially not in the form of a lottery in which your e-mail address or mobile number was "chosen." These are always scams, and there are no exceptions, ever. This entry is located here, in the upper left hand corner, and there are some lottery scam videos here.

My name is Gary, and I live in the Midwestern United States. This site is intended to expose the frauds and scams that are so pervasive on the internet, especially today. One hundred per- cent of the e-mails you get that promise you millions are never, ever real. They'll tell you they're "dying," trying to gain your sympathy. They're not dying, they're lying. Click Here for the "Dying" scams. Don't fall for it, and never send them any money, no matter what they tell you. Oh, and good luck hacking this website. It's got a nice strong password on it.
