O2Telecommunications Jackpot (Scam Alert)

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

I’m such a lucky person I won this O2 Telecom Lottery three times! At least that’s what the three copies of this message I got would suggest. Alas, if only it were true. This is a variant of the standard lottery scam message, inventing an imaginary prize drawing sponsored by a big corporation. If you take the bait, your money will be on its way! (Right after you pay some up-front transfer fees, or taxes, or bank charges, or, well, you know….)
