Lottery Checks By Mail: Too Good to be True


If you receive a check stating that you won a lottery, use caution. It could be a scam.

Typical scams may request an administration fee or registration fee to access overseas winnings, require some type of purchase, or may suggest that there are government funds available to be claimed by individuals.

To avoid becoming a lottery scan victim, remember these points:

  • Ask yourself, "How could I win a lottery if I haven't bought a ticket?"
  • Usually, if you win something, you shouldn't have to pay anything to receive your prize.
  • Once you respond to bogus promotions, your name and address is likely to be placed on other lists for similar scams.
  • If asked to use a premium rate telephone (900) number, remember these can be very expensive and may be part of the scam.
  • Do not enter sweepstakes contests unless they are run by a company you know.
  • Never reveal credit card or bank account details unless you're absolutely sure you know with whom you are dealing. These details may be asked for as "identification", but the real reason is to scam you and steal your identity.
