Lottery Scam Victim
If you are tempted to think that lottery scams don't really claim real victims, here is an email from just one of those scam victims. It arrived at lottery.co.uk offices by recorded mail, presumably because the scamsters used our office address in their emails.
Sadly the lottery scam victim had already paid out $10,632.00 to the scamsters. And the accompanying letter was pleading with us for a refund of the money as the lady scam victim in question, whose husband had died in the interim, could not afford to lose this kind of money (but who can?).
You can see how the fees have gradually been ramped up as the lottery scam victim thought they were getting closer to receiving their 'winnings'.
