The announcement comes via regular mail, email or a phone call.
You’ve won a big prize, and now it’s time to collect your money.
All you have to do to claim the cash is pay a processing fee by supplying your credit card number, checking account number, or other personal information, such as your Social Security number. You might even be asked to wire money to a specific bank account before your winnings can be sent.
Don’t do it! It’s probably a scam.
