The Official Lottery App and Phishing Scams

A lottery is a gambling game that involves paying a small amount of money for the chance to win a large prize. The prize can be anything from a car to a house or even millions of dollars. Some people choose to play for the fun of it, while others do it for financial reasons. In either case, it’s important to know what to look out for to avoid being scammed.

The official lottery app offers fun and convenience to players on the go. Using the app, users can scan a ticket and see if they’re a winner, buy tickets online, view winning numbers, purchase ePlayslips, check store locations, and more! The official lottery app is free to download, but you must be 18 or older to use it.

A phishing scam is making the rounds that appears to be targeting lottery winners. The scam e-mails appear to be from the National Lottery Commission’s chief executive, Mark Harris. But the e-mails redirect to website that seems to have been registered two years ago. Those who respond to the phishing email are then asked to share personal information including their bank account details. This is a clear attempt to steal lottery winners’ cash. It’s an ominous development that should have users on high alert. New York Lottery winner Michael Jaffe is trying to change that. He’s pushed for a law that would let New York Lottery winners remain anonymous if they choose to, but it won’t be considered by the Legislature until next year at the earliest.
