  • From the Office of the Chief of Police
    Our police department has received complaints from residents who believe they are about to be scammed. Residents are receiving letters at their homes addressed directly to them and postmarked in Canada. The letters tell them they have won a lottery sweepstakes. To make everything appear legitimate, the resident also receives a check made out directly to them for a large sum of money, usually $4,000  or more and advising that this money has been deducted from their winnings, which could be in the millions.  They are instructed not to cash the check until calling a provided phone number.  After making the call the person is instructed to wire a money gram or Western Union money order to pay for "taxes." This is a scam.
    DO NOT SEND ANY MONEY! CALL YOUR LOCAL POLICE DEPARTMENT OR POSTAL INSPECTOR when or if you receive this type of mailer
