Since we first launched the booklet in March 2012, it has remained one of our most popular publications.Don't be fooled by claims that the offer is legal or has government approval—many scammers will tell you this. Scammers and fraudsters play upon the universal desire to win big… with lottery, sweepstakes and contest scams designed to put money in their pockets… as they profit by making you pay premium text or phone rates, bogus “fees” or hidden costs.Instead of receiving a grand prize or fortune, you will lose every cent that you send to a scammer. Even worse, many of these scams are designed SPECIFICALLY to steal your banking and other personal information… after which the fraudsters cash in by stealing from you or holding your data for ransom.Many lottery scams try to trick you into providing your banking and personal details to claim your prize.
You should not have to pay any fee or tax to claim a legitimate prize.
