This is a typical example of a lottery scam message. Who wouldn’t want to win a fortune? If you make the mistake of replying, the scammer will say that you have to pay “transaction fees” or “transfer taxes” before the (imaginary) winnings can be released. And if you make the bigger mistake of paying, the scammer will disappear with your money, never to be heard from again.
Please share this scam alert with your friends on Facebook and Twitter.
