NOTE: Above contact details may be impersonated.
Above are just a few examples. These scammers can come up with a new way to scam people. So, you should never believe any such message which claims you have won a big amount of money or prizes from some reputed companies.
We understand that when people see they have won a big amount of money, they just get excited and want to stay in the dream world. But, we want you to come into reality and contact the respective company to confirm either that email is really from that company or not. For example, you can contact with Coca-Cola company to confirm either Coca Cola Asian Promotion 2019 Lucky Draw is real or not.
Anyway, now you know that these messages are scams, so let's find out what is the motive behind these messages.
The main motive of these cybercriminals is to get your personal information as well as to steal your money by tricking you. They can make money by selling your personal information like email address, ID details, financial details and so on to the third parties and make money from that. That's why they always ask you to send your personal details in those messages.
Never ever provide your credit card information to these kinds of scammers. Once cybercriminals find your credit card details, they will charge your credit card randomly without your consent until your credit card run out of money. So, if you have already provided your credit card information mistakenly to any of these cybercriminals, we suggest you immediately contact your bank or credit card company and tell them to cancel your credit card and provide you the new one.
These kinds of messages have also some files attached to them or links to click there. Never ever download such files from such messages because those may contain some malware or virus which can harm your device or even can hack your device to get your personal information. Also, never click any link provided in such messages because when you click such links and visit some websites, then such websites also may contain some malware or viruses which can harm your device.
These cybercriminals will also try to steal the money from potential victims by asking them to send some money in order to pay some fees or tax to release the winning amount. However, if you send them your money, they will just vanish with your money. So, never ever send any money to them. Real lucky draw companies will never ask you to send any money in order to pay some fees or tax to get the winning amount. Instead, they will cut the necessary fees just from your winning amount and send you the remaining balance. So, all the lucky draw companies which ask you to pay money first to release the winning amount are scams.
Actually, you should not follow any instruction provided in such scam messages. Instead, you should just delete them.
Now you are clear about the Coca Cola Asian Promo 2019 scam. So, please spread the awareness about this scam by sharing this post with your friends and families through your social media accounts:-
