RCMP Online Lottery Scam Warning


The Chetwynd RCMP has issued a media advisory to again raise local area public awareness, about an increasing number of online lottery scams.

It says messages stating the recipient is a guaranteed winner can be in the form of an e-mail, fax or telephone call, and they may use what appears to be offical letterhead.

However, police are concerned that associated requests for contact with the recipient, may in fact be efforts for the bogus lottery organizations, to gain information…or, to try to impose a fee in order for the alleged prize to be disbursed.
