There are always scams on the internet. If its too good to be true then be aware.
There are emails circulating claiming that an email based superenalotto draw has taken place and of course you have won. Ultimately they will want you to pay an administration fee up front before you “receive” your winnings. Obviously you won’t recieve anything !!
Some have accused this website of also been a scam. To be honest i blog for pleasure. The subject of the superenalotto creates increased hits to this blog and ultimately leading to higher google SERP results & page ranking for my core activity Italian Property. But whilst blogging i might aswell try and create some revenue through affiliate channels and playing the lottery for you.
