By opening some online sites, glittering words welcomes you, telling that , you won US $2000 or UK pound 2000 in online lottery. Mostly that address shows UK. what you think about this?
Sounds like a scam to me. Do they ask you for personal identification information?
There you have it then, it's a scam. No reputable place will ask you for personal identifying information over the Internet. It just isn't done that way. They are exploiting people's ignorance of things in order to con people into giving them money, or tools they can use to perpetuate their scams. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. The big question to ask is "what are they getting out of this?" If they're just getting your personal information, it's a scam. If you can figure out how they're making money running a lottery, then you're in a better position to figure out if they're a scam or not.
