BBB warns about Publishers Clearing House letters scams
MONROE, La. (KNOE) - The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers about postal scams. They advise you to avoid foreign lotteries. If a lottery is based in a foreign country and conducted through the mail, it’s illegal, according to the BBB.
The BBB says here are ways to avoid getting scammed:
Never wire or send money to someone who says you’ve won a prize
No legitimate lottery would ask for money to claim your prize.
Account holders on the checks are innocent victims.
Do not try to deposit checks. They could be counterfeit.
