Description

Il y a un certain nombre d'escroqueries au courriel actuellement diffusées qui prétendent que le destinataire a remporté une grosse somme d'argent. Lorsque le "gagnant" contacte la société de loterie pour réclamer son prix, on lui demande soit de payer une contribution pour la manutention soit de transmettre les détails de son compte en banque.

Voici un exemple type d'une telle escroquerie :
