Debunking email hoaxes and exposing Internet scams since 2003!
LAVIVA LOTTO SCAM
are one of the most common types of fraudulent email currently hitting inboxes. The LAVIVA LOTTO email shown below is an example of one of these scam emails. Be wary of unsolicited email that informs you that you have won a large sum of money in an international lottery. There is no lottery and no prize. Those who initiate a dialogue with the scammers by replying to the lottery scam emails will eventually be asked for advanced fees to cover expenses associated with delivery of the supposed "winnings". They may also become the victims of identity theft.
