Admit it, you’ve played the game that asks “What would you do if you won a lottery?” The first step is to make sure you actually won a lottery.

Lottery scams abound. Some trick people into sending cash to cover a few fees and taxes before the winnings can be sent to them. Others approach actual winners as experienced, trusted advisors only to pad service fees. Then there are those who try to cheat the lottery itself by rigging the game to offer up predetermined numbers.

It’s said that it’s better to be lucky than smart. When it comes to these cons, smart is the winning ticket.
