ACCU Lotto Scam

Please share this scam alert with your friends on social media.

This is a standard lottery scam message, using the name of a less common lottery. (Most lottery messages are based on the Euro Millions lottery, or something similar.) The approach is the same, however, no matter which lottery is named: they tell you you’ve won, and if you take the bait, you discover that “fees” and “taxes” have to be paid before the supposed winnings can be released. Of course there really are no winnings; there’s just a scammer trying to separate you from your cash.
