Types of Vikinglotto Scams
There are several Vikinglotto scams that you should look out for. They include:
You might receive a text message saying you have won a prize after your number was randomly selected to win. These types of promotion do not exist, and Vikinglotto would never inform you of such a win via text message. Do not follow any links sent in suspicious text messages.
Scammers sometimes pose as official lottery representatives over the telephone. They will ask you for your bank details and personal information so they can send your prize to you. Never give these types of details out to strangers over the phone.
The rise of social media has enabled a new type of scam, in which you receive a message via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or another social media platform, saying you are the winner of a lottery prize. Always remember that you cannot enter Vikinglotto through any social media platform and you would never be informed of a win via social media. You can only play online through authorised lottery concierge services and offline at authorised ticket retailers.
In a postal scam, you would receive a letter informing you of a lottery win. The letter might not be addressed to you personally and may just say ‘Dear Winner,’ which is an easy way to tell that it isn’t genuine. The letter might be poorly written or may otherwise look unofficial.
