Hot Scam Specifications:
Scam Type: 419 Scam (Lottery Scam)
Fake Names: Dr. Carl A. Moore, Mr.James Collins
Offer Type: Lottery Winnings
Winning Amount: $541,022 GBP
Storyline: You won a lottery which you did not join
Scammer Location: Claimed to be UK
Scammer Email: info@toyotacustomercare2007, firstname.lastname@example.org
Firstly, Toyota is just one of the many car manufacturers and they don’t run international online lottery.
Secondly, the fake email address from the scammer left out the “.com” in the end.
Thirdly, it is meaningless to join “Toyota” with “National Lottery”. It does not make sense for national lottery to be associated with a car manufacturer, and selecting winners by email addresses.
Fourth, we don’t quite understand what is meant by “E-mail Legacy Winnings”.
Anyway, this is a good addition to our records.
