Police warn of letters from bogus lottery


Published: Sat, March 11, 2006 @ 12:00 a.m.


NEW MIDDLETOWN -- New Middletown Police Department has received complaints from some residents who have received letters from an international lottery, notifying them of winning a substantial amount of money.
The recipients, however, have not entered any such lotteries.
The award letter directs the recipients to cash the enclosed check and pay administrative and activation fees.
Police warn the public that the letters, postmarked from Canada, are bogus. Calls made by police led to disconnected numbers or answering machines.
If you have received such a letter, contact your local police department and the Ohio Attorney General Consumer Protection Division at (800) 828-0515.
