EuroMillion Lottery Scam Methods
Typically lottery scam artists will email you trying to get money out of you. When informed that an Admin Fee or Tax is required to release funds, you will know that you are in contact with a lottery scammer who is trying to get some of your hard-earned funds out of you.
There are a couple of really basic questions that you need to ask of yourself to avoid being taken in by a lottery scam, we offer guidance and advice below.
Using common sense is the best advice we can give to avoid being taken in by these Lottery scams.
Identifying EuroMillion Lottery Scams
1) Did you actually buy a EuroMillion Lottery ticket? If not then you have absolutely not won the EuroMillion lottery or any other lottery game. In addition, Lottery Games would never charge you an admin fee or a tax to release funds.
2) Check out the email address of the email you get, invariably scam artists who resort to this as a way to make a living use public email addresses.
They will use email addresses that come from Yahoo or Google or Hotmail. Some have been known to spoof email addresses .
That basically means they make it seem as if the email is coming from EuroMillions. EuroMillions Lottery would never email you either.
3) Another popular Scam is the Lottery Software scam. Lottery scam artists will send you emails and links to sites where you can buy the latest Lottery prediction software.
You might see enticing banners and material on the site. Firstly there is no software in the world that can predict a range of numbers. Also ask yourself, if this was true, would anyone be sharing it ?
We must state that EuroMillionLottery.com is not the official site and operator of EuroMillions. We cover EuroMillion Lottery news and results for EuroMillions lottery and news and reviews about other gaming sites.
We created this page in the hope that we could alert online lottery players to the methods used by Lottery Scam artists. If we are able to save a single person the heartache and embarrassment that this type of scam causes, it will be worth it.
