Lottery Scams

Lottery Scams In this digital age, lottery scams that come through the mail may seem like a thing of the past but Consumer Protection BC continues to get calls about this scam that often targets seniors.

The typical scenario involves an individual who receives a letter in the mail saying they have won $2.5 million. The person is instructed to send back $30 as a ‘processing fee’ and include personal details, such as a telephone number and birth date. Once that letter is sent, not only is the consumer out of pocket for the money, they are also added to a ‘sucker list’ and are likely to receive more and more offers like this one in the mail.
