Lottery Scams/Prize Scams/Inheritance Scams

These scams will always tell you that you have unexpectedly ‘won” a prize, that you have no recollection of ever entering.  As well, it could be by random email, etc.  A standard rule of thumb is:  If it sounds too good to be true, it is.  If you ever have to pay money to someone to receive a prize, or “inheritance” to a contest you have not entered officially and legally, you are almost certainly being scammed.
