Beware of the lottery scam.
The warning is being issued by the Ontario Provincial Police after a North Dundas man alerted the OPP when he was asked to send a fee after allegedly “winning” a lottery.
Lottery scams and other prize fraud schemes now rank second highest in terms of the number of mass marketing fraud complaints, and fourth in terms of dollar losses reported by victims.
If you have been approached to pay a fee to claim a lottery or other type of prize, contact your local police service or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS) or online at
Never send money to anybody you don’t know and trust.
Don’t provide personal banking details to anyone that you do not know and trust.
Examine all of the terms and conditions of any offer very carefully. Claims of free or very cheap offers often have hidden costs. Calls to premium rate phone numbers or premium text messages can be very expensive.
Ask yourself, “Did I willingly enter this contest?”
