Our visitor received several versions of Toyota lottery scams via
email, and these are all fakes, no matter how the scammers change the
content of it.
If you are not sure if you really win a prize, you can always call up
the direct line (not the ones in the email) to check if the company has
become insane and started to give out free money.
Forget about the headers, etc. Anybody can simply paste the headers on the email.
Somehow, it appears that most people think that these are scams but are tempted to reply to the first mail. After they get a second email from the scammer (i.e. a reply), they will get even more tempted and start to ask question “Is this real?”. That is why we advise not to reply and simply delete the first mail.
Subject: An email I got… I was wondering if it is real?
