If It Seems Too Good to be True, It Is

The OPP say phones are ringing off the hook as people report lottery and sweepstake scams.

OPP in the region are warning the public about a new phone, email, and social media scam making the rounds locally. 

People have been getting messages saying they have won a large lottery or sweepstake. The scammers will tell you have won the prize and in order to collect, all you need to do is pay a small fee to cover taxes or legal fees. Known lottery and sweepstakes companies will never request money up front in order to receive a prize.

Valuable information concerning fraud prevention and awareness can be located through the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or online here.
