Facebook Lottery Scam


Oh look I have won the Facebook Lottery, or might have done if there actually was such a thing.

Unfortunately it is all a big scam. If you were unwise enough to reply, all you would get is a request for a sum of money for Post & packing and the transfer fee for the money

To make it more attractive than usual, apart from the just over $1m money they are giving you a Facebook cap, tee shirt and wallet, Wow! how exciting.

To show how clueless or how they don’t filter or check email addresses they send to, this was sent to a spam trap email address that is obvious ol_spam@dvk01.com

These definitely do not come from Facebook. They don’t even come from the alleged sending address awardpromo.nl which doesn’t even exist and hasn’t been registered.

The email looks like:
