This list contains examples of lottery scam emails that I have collected either via submissions from site visitors or directly from lottery scammers.
New examples are added as soon as possible after I receive them.
However, it is important to understand that this is by no means a comprehensive list.
This strong similarity is one way of quickly identifying a lottery email as a scam.
If you receive a lottery email that is not listed here but proves to be very similar in format, style and phrasing to one or more of the included examples, then it is highly probable that the email is a scam.
We write about topics that are trending online or have been submitted by readers via email and social media.
We thoroughly research all articles published on Hoax-Slayer prior to publication.
