|Yet another flood of spam mail has hit Europe promising the reader vast wealth in a lottery they never took part in. This time the Dutch seem to have been targeted with a scheme that claims victims have won the staggering sum of $6.5 million prize in a US lottery.|
Sprint Securities, a highly dubious company based in the Netherlands, is the supposed clearing-house for prize money that bothers email users with the news that they’ve come into great wealth. Sprint have even set-up a fairly decent website that promises: 'All payments are duly guaranteed and we are poised to ensure customer satisfaction.'
Yeah, right. Only anyone falling for this irritating spam scam should be immediately concerned that they’ll have to part with as much as $7900 'to cover payment of opening of account, handling, transfer, insurance and mailing costs and charges.”
$7900 they would obviously never see again as the con artists securely sprint away with the victim’s hard earned cash. As ever with these schemes, be the medium email or telephone, anything that promises huge financial reward only by forking out your own money first should be treated with the height of suspicion. If it sounds too good to be true it probably is. Like gambling!
