Warnings about lottery letters and fake airline mailPhoto: Video by ktnv.com
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It is a scam that we have been warned about before by the Nevada Fight Fraud Task Force, the Better Business Bureau and even the FBI.
A letter in the mail that promises the recipient that they are the lucky winner of the Australian lottery.
In most cases, the scammer asks for the person receiving the letter to wire a small payment before they disperse any funds.
However, there is never an upfront fee for lottery or sweepstakes winnings.
Remember, if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.
Also, beware of any emails that your receive about airline tickets. Especially, if you never bought an airline ticket.
