Sheriff’s office: Don’t be a victim of lottery scam

-A A +A
By Jenny Arnold

The Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office is sending out the age-old reminder: If it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

Maj. David Belk said the sheriff’s office has received calls about a lottery scam going out through the mail.

“This kind of thing has been going on for a while,” Belk said. “We have some people who have actually sent money to these folks.”

A Lancaster woman reported to the sheriff’s office that she received a letter notifying her that she had won $150,000 in a lottery draw in Canada.
