Walmart International Sweepstakes Lottery was referenced in unsolicited letters that appear to be fraudulent or bogus. Our website contains a large collection of scam and hoax e-mails and letters. Lottery scams attempt to con the recipient into sending money in order to claim lottery winnings in lotteries that were never entered into. If you get an e-mail or letter that is similar to one in our collection, you should ignore it. Do not contact the sender and especially do not give out personal information. NEVER pay any fees of any kind. A legitimate lottery does not ask this. Most of these scammers operate overseas, so they can safely scam you. You may want to visit other pages or sites to learn more.
