If you have got the messages as mentioned above in the name of mega jackpot lottery winner Mr. Mike Wiersky or Michael J. Weirsky, then you must know that those are fraud messages, not the genuine or legit ones and aren’t sent by those lottery winners but by the scammers. So, you should not click any link or download anything or follow any instructions provided on those messages. If you follow the instructions provided on those messages, then you may end up losing your personal information which can be used to scam you and steal money from you.
These kinds of messages in the name of mega jackpot lottery winner Mike Wiersky or Michael J. Weirsky or other similar persons are just a few examples of these kinds of phishing messages. However, these scammers can come up with a new way to scam people. So, you should never believe any such messages which claim you have done or got something without your consent or someone has hacked your personal account or you have won a big amount of money or prizes out of blue and so on.
Anyway, now you know that these messages are scams, so let’s find out what is the motive behind these messages.
What is the motive behind these fake 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 third parties and make money from that. That’s why they always ask you to send your personal details in those messages or click some link or download something from where they can hack your personal details.
Never provide your credit card information to these kinds of cybercriminals. Once cybercriminals find your credit card details, they will charge your credit card randomly without your consent until your credit card runs 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 may also contain some files attached to them or links to click there. Never ever download such files from such messages because those may contain some spyware, 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 spyware or malware or viruses that can harm your device.
These cybercriminals will also try to steal the money from potential victims by asking them to send some money to pay some fees to get those gifts and prizes. However, if you send them your money, they will just vanish with your money. So, never ever send any money to them. Real companies will never ask you to send any money to pay some fees or tax to get the gifts, prizes or winning amounts. Instead, they will cut the necessary fees just from your winning amount and send you the remaining balance. So, all companies which ask you to pay money first to send you some gifts or prizes or winning amounts are scams.
Actually, you should not follow any instructions provided in such scam messages. Instead, you should just delete them. If you get confused either such message is a scam or from a real company, then you should directly contact the main company or visit the official website of the main company and login there to check the details but never visit any website by clicking the link provided on such messages.
