PNP-ACG and GCash collaborate to educate public on avoiding lottery scams

The Philippine National Police Anti-Cybercrime Group (PNP-ACG) and GCash issue warnings and advice to the public, urging them to be cautious of lottery scams where scammers attempt to defraud victims through false prize notifications and soliciting personal information.

To stay safe, individuals are advised to carefully inspect sweepstakes mailers, avoid sharing personal details with unsolicited communication claiming to be prize notifications, and read and understand all terms and conditions in lottery or sweepstakes forms.

These precautionary measures can protect against potential scammers and cybercriminals, ensuring greater online safety for everyone.
