27 February 2009
Feb 27, 2009 – The Nelson Mandela Foundation would like to alert the public that there is an email lottery scam doing the rounds.
People are being sent an email which informs them that their “email address has been selected as one of the winners of the Nelson Mandela Foundation/Fifa World Cup Lottery Draw”.
The email contains an attachment detailing instructions to follow in order to claim the prize.
There is no such lottery draw and the Nelson Mandela Foundation is not involved in any such campaign. The Foundation urges recipients of such an email to ignore it entirely.
