Consensus Award Bureau Postcard Scam

A phone call is not the only way Butler County Citizens are targeted by scammers. A post card received by one area resident indicated he had funds awaiting him from an international lottery. The instructions include calling a toll-free number to begin the process.

This is simply another twist on the Lottery Scam. Calling the number on the card will only result in future scam calls where every attempt will be made to encourage you to send money to claim your winnings. Please remember -YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO PAY MONEY TO COLLECT LEGITIMATE LOTTERY WINNING! If an organization wants money up front for insurance, taxes, or delivery fees of any sort, IT IS A SCAM!>
