(7) Ever won an online lottery?

The Google Promotion Award Team has discovered a huge number of double claims due to winners informing close friends relatives and third parties about their

winning and also sharing their pin numbers. As a result of this, these friends try to claim the lottery on behalf of the real winners. The Google Promotion

Award Team has reached a decision from headquarters that any double claim discovered by the Lottery Board will result to the canceling of that particular

winning, making a loss for both the double claimer and the real winner, as it is taken that the real winner was the informer to the double claimer about the

lottery. So you are hereby strongly advised once more to keep your winnings strictly confidential until you claim your prize.

Congratulations from the Staffs & Members of the Google interactive Lotteries Board Commission.

Sincerely,
Dr. Donald Lloyd
Google Promotion Award Team

setelah berusaha mencari tahu, penulis menemukan sebuah forum yang menanyakan perihal yang sama, dan hasilnya email tersebut adalah scam.

Jika ada pembaca yang belum tahu apa itu scam?, scam bisa dikategorikan sebagai penipuan, pesan omong kosong yang betul2 bisa menjerumuskan kita kalo kita tidak hati-hati, dan sangat mungkin terjadi diakhiri kita diminta mengirimkan data rahasia kita atau bahkan diminta mengirimkan uang untuk para penipu tersebut.

Jadi, hati-hatilah jika anda menerima email terlebih bila email tersebut sebuah lotre.

    Tks Mas Arif untuk infonya. Saya baru saja (15/1/2011) menerima email scam yang mengatasnamakan Google itu. Semula email-email penipuan semacam itu, juga beberapa jenis lainnya, biasanya langsung saya buang. Tetapi kini saya kumpulkan. Setiap kali muncul nama baru atau trik baru, termasuk yang melibatkan nama pengirim dengan nama Indonesia, saya cek di Google. Lumayan, bisa memberikan pengalaman cukup menarik. Siapa tahu dapat diolah menjadi buku lelucon/humor saya yang berikutnya.

    Oh ya, kebanyakan email penipuan yang saya terima datang dari Burkina Faso yang arti harafiahnya “Negeri Orang Jujur,” yang kontan membuat saya jadi tergeli-geli sendiri.

    Apalagi ketika baca-baca kisah warga cerdas di Barat yang sengaja gantian ngerjain para scammers tadi. Bila ada waktu, ini ada kisah lucu, ketika scammer itu dikerjain dengan skor telak, di laman ini : http://platypusmaximus.blogspot.com/2009/06/fun-with-romance-scammers.html

    Wah saya baru tahu. Saya diinformasikan memenangkan ‘ YAHOO & WINDOWS LIVE, IN-CONJUNCTION WITH FACEBOOK AWARD prize money of sebesar £550,000.00 GBP yang akan dibayarkan oleh ABSA Bank Afrika Selatan. Saya coba penuhi klarifikasi dan disuruh kontak ke IMF segala, tapi lagi-lagi dipusingkan disana harus ini dan itu yang ujung-ujungnya memang suruh transfer sejumlah uang dulu agar dana bisa cair. Akhirnya saya baru sadar ini pasti penipuan …. setelah mencari tahu di internet. Gak saya transfer …
