Lottery players: Beware of Fb lotto rip-off

Lottery News - Maine State Lottery warns its lottery players of an potential scam being perpetrated on Facebook. Internet and social media marketing users should be weary of emails and messages claiming that they have won a prize. These messages typically encourage the reader to supply cash or sensitive information for example credit card and bank details. If you comply, you're at potential risk of being a victim of identity theft.
For instance, a Facebook page/profile by the name of Dan Tim Poulin have been created and notified users of the social networking site they have won an amazing lottery prize. The name used is that of former Maine Lottery Director Dan Gwadosky and current Deputy Director Tim Poulin. However, officials maintain how the Facebook account is fake.
Players needs to be reminded that any official state lottery won't ever require the crooks to send money, provide credit card information or banking information to claim a prize. Often, these scams are perpetrated from outside the United States including hackers that result from Africa and Asia.
Lottery players and users who've received these kinds of solicitations should preferably contact Maine State Lottery at (207) 287-3721 or by email at MaineLottery@Maine.gov.
