Harry Black Gave You Part Of His Lottery Winnings
This is an odd one that preys on your greed – Harry Black is not going to share his lottery winnings though.
I spotted this in my SPAM Arrest inbox today:
from: Lacour, Sarah Banks
Harry Black gave you part of his lottery winnings as charity contact him via e-mail (email@example.com) You can view this link http://www.huffingtonpost.ca/2013/05/28/harry-black-lotto-649-winner_n_3349204.html
True Link but Fake Email
The link to the Huffington Post (Canada) story is a true link – I verified it by typing it in rather than clicking the link directly – to the story about Harry Black winning 37.1 million dollars on the 6/49 Lotto.
But the email is fake. I haven’t tried it but I guess you’ll be conned into parting with some money in order to ‘release’ the winnings to your account or something equally devious.
As usual, these sort of emails are too good to be true. There’s no indication that Harry Black will be distributing his winnings. In fact he plans to travel and then buy land to build his dream house. Good luck to him!
Beware of emails like this – the spammers behind them are out to cheat you.
