It does not matter how you receive this “great” news, via email or phone calls. If a man has not heard about such as scam before, he will be overwhelmed by the “great” news. Ofcourse, all of these lottery and prize are not real, and the scammers would require you to wire some of your own money over before they can release the “lottery” or “prize”.

You are just one of the millions receiving these scams every day. And if you reply to these scammers and wire the funds over, you are just giving him a “lottery winning” using the money in your own bank!
