Exposing Internet Fraud & Scams
American Mega Millions Lottery was referenced in unsolicited emails that appear to be fraudulent or bogus. Mega Millions Lottery is almost certainly not involved nor likely to approve the use of its name in the e-mails. Scammers often use the names of legitimate lotteries or companies to make their claims seem legitimate. This site contains a large collection of scam and hoax e-mails. Lottery scam emails are those that attempt to scam the recipient into sending money in order to claim lottery winnings in lotteries that were never entered into. Don't be fooled by official looking documents (e.g. phony governmental certificates, checks and passports) as scammers make a living forging these things. If you get an e-mail that is similar to one in our collection, you should delete it. NEVER pay any fees of any kind. A legitimate lottery does not ask this. If you are victimized by the fraud, there is not much that you can do. You may want to visit other sites to learn more.
