Beware of fake lottery scams
Some scammers falsely use Mega Millions name
“You’ve won the lottery!” It’s something that many people want to hear.
The scams take many forms and the scammers use many tricks. The criminals may contact unsuspecting consumers by email, telephone, mobile phone, or through social media sites, and tell intended victims they have won a large prize. They might identify themselves as being with Mega Millions or another legitimate lottery, even though Mega Millions is a game, not an organization.
Most recently, these scams use important-sounding names like “United States National Lottery,” “Mega Millions Mobile Lottery,” "USA UK Mega Millions Lottery," “Mega Millions Corporation” or “Mega Millions International Lottery” – these are all attempts to look legitimate in order to scam people out of their money. None of these so-called entities exist – again, Mega Millions will only contact you by email or phone, only if you are randomly picked by email or phone, and Mega million will never ask you for your Name or Address, If you are randomly picked by email or phone,our sytem will auto-detect your Name and Address.
These scams all have one thing in common: the best way to know the right email from us are:
- If you won a random lottery program, Mega Millions will know your full name
- Your Address
- Your Phone Number,Email,Age
- The Sender's email must be in this format (email@example.com)
