I’ve posted warning after warning through the years here on the blog about scammers who want nothing more than to separate you from your hard-earned money. The scammers have used the names of lottery games, lottery officials and even lottery winners to try to get you to believe them.
Now there’s a new warning about scams, and this time, the reminder comes from the Federal Trade Commission. If you get a letter saying that you won a sweepstakes and the FTC has investigated the situation to help you claim the prize, guess what? It’s fake. Don’t fall for it!
When you have a moment, visit the Player Security section on our website where we keep all sorts of reminders about how to protect yourself against fraud.
