bbc lottery is it true a scam?


Scam Alert BBC National Lottery Board on Our 2015 Charity Bonanza Spam I Received

 Scammers are internet fraudster that use false information, statement and claims to dupe innocent people. Scammers will like ask for your contact information and credit card or bank information, will send  a send  containing an information you already know.
 This scammers will send information to you from a company that you already know or a program, event  you already know, they will include in your  the email text, links, website, or url to trusted source just to delude you.  for example if it’s a lottery,  a promo etc they will include a link to the website of the real company you trust. All this tricks are aimed to make you trust them. read how scammers operate
 The lottery scam I wanted to unveil is the bbc lottery scam, though bbc lottery is real , but internet fraudsters are using this  opportunity to mislead people in order to take away their hard earned money. If you are a lottery fan, you know that you must buy a lottery ticket before entering the contest talkless of winning it, therefore if you know you haven’t bought any ticket from BBC lottery just ignore any winning email you saw in your inbox.
 BBC National Lottery Board has stop sending winning news to successful contestant via email; therefore if you receive any message in your inbox that you have worn a lottery just ignore it.
 In real lottery contestant are urge to log into the website and check their winning status, especially if they bought their ticket via online means. Therefore when you buy a lotto ticket, you will be provided with a logins, use this login to confirm whether you won or not.
 scam lottery emails usually comes with a large surprise, most of the time it will be that you have worn a $1,000,000 or more, this will prompt you to reply first and sometime send a processing fee, if you do this you have lost your money except when you prompt the police, but most of the time it is very difficult to get back your money, especially if it involve international money transfer.
Do not click on any link they may send to you, it may be the hacked version of the website or hyperlink; it will install some viruses into your computer. Do not send any personal information to them they will use it to either forge your credit card or use it still your banking information.
 Below is the scam email I received in my spam box, I decide to share it so that anyone who may receive same message in the future will take the appropriate measures.
