Winning the Fake Euromillions

I thought I would write a little about the Euromillions 419 scams that have been going around for years, and it still surprises me when customers email in to our support desk crying that they just paid out $600 + USD in order to receive their prize.

In a nut shell the scammer emails thousands of random people telling them that they have won the lottery, in this case Euromillions. The sucker... believe this tripe even though he has not played. But the caveat of  the scam is that they must pay the scammer upfront for some kind of fee to receive the funds (and advanced fee).

It comes in many different shapes and forms...

This is a very funny video which takes the piss out of one of these scammers...
