Contest/Need Help Fraud-

• the crime of using a "winner of contest" or "need help" pop up/ad in order to take something from someone else


An example of contest fraud is a pop up saying "Congratulations! You have Won!".

An example of need help fraud is an ad that describes a natural disaster and asks for a donation.


You can prevent these two types of fraud by not clicking on the ad or pop up. Do not give out your information.
