Chicopee Police Warn of a US Mail Scam
CHICOPEE, Mass. (WGGB)–Chicopee police are warning people of a scam received in the US mail saying you are a lottery winner.
It contains a check that appears to be authentic and says you are the second prize winner of the European, African, and USA Consumer sweepstakes. It also requests a processing fee.
Officer Michael Wilk says it was received by a Chicopee resident and brought to the station after suspicion. He reminds people if you did not buy a lottery ticket in a foreign country, you cannot win. He says be aware if you see misspelled details in the mail and ask before you do anything.
