Irish National Lottery / Online lottery scam!
I received this email, I did some internet research and feel that it is very definitely a scam. I wanted to include it in my complaint. I will be deleting it as soon as I have finished this complaint. I just hope that it will help to find who is doing this and keep someone from being scammed.
I have received several such scam emails over the past year. It is a cruel and heartless practice and I wish there were a way these criminals could be stopped. But, unfortunately, anyone is able to use the internet for scams and the chances of being caught are pretty nil.
I am happy to say that I didn't fall for any of them. I am suspicious by nature of something that sounds too good to be true. I hope this will help. And thanks.
