Here's a good example of a convincing lottery scam. This one came as an attached Microsoft Office Word document, and some are PDF files. If you download attachments, be sure to scan them first on a flash drive. They usually really are just Word or PDF documents, but don't take my word for it. Be careful, and don't become infected with malware! The scammers do this so they can get a little fancier than an e-mail, and they usually don't know how to program one in HTML. In the document, they give you all kinds of official sounding numbers, and even include names, photos, and signatures of "lottery officials," which may or may not be real. These are never real either, of course, and there is never any money. If you did not go out to your local lottery outlet, and buy your own paper lottery ticket, then you did not win anything.

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.
