Soccer enthusiasts scammed
As the lead up to the 2010
Soccer World Cup continues, FIFA has issued a warning of
various lottery World Cup ticket scams. Emails have been
circulating, promising recipients prize money in exchange
for personal and banking details.
In a statement issued by
FIFA, the body says “FIFA continues to be alerted
to emails fraudulently claiming to be associated / linked
to FIFA, the 2010 FIFA World Cup and/or Local Organising
Committee informing recipients that they have been selected
as prize winners in a lottery draw and have won substantial
sums of money.
Many of these emails appear
to be official and most of them ask recipients to provide
their personal details, including bank account information,
in order to claim the cash prize. FIFA strongly advises
the public to treat any emails concerning lottery draws
or cash prizes with suspicion and extreme caution.
