Don't Fall For Lottery Scams
Don't fall for one of several lottery scams going around.
The scams may have different names but they all have the same intent - a promise of big prizes in official-looking emails or texts if certain fees are paid.
They are in no way connected to the real Mega Millions game despite their using our name and/or logo, and sometimes the name and logo of other legitimate organizations in efforts to sound even more official.
There is no “Mega Millions sweepstake international lottery program,” no “Mega Million Jackpot Winners List,” and no “Mega Millions International Lottery.”
Only Way to Win is to Buy a Ticket
The only way to win Mega Millions is to buy a ticket and match some or all of the winning numbers for that specific drawing.
There are no random Mega Millions prizes awarded anywhere in the world simply on the basis of phone numbers, email addresses or social media accounts.
More importantly, winners never have to pay any fees to claim a real lottery prize. If you are asked to pay money, it is a scam.
