Sheriff warns against mail scam
STANFORD — Lincoln County residents who have received letters claiming they have won money in a lottery may be targets of a mail scam, according to the Lincoln County Sheriff's Office.
The suspected letters state that the recipient has won a large sum of money through a computerized drawing.
The letter includes a check that will supposedly pay taxes on the winnings and advises the reader to wait for further instructions in order to receive the winnings.
With the help of a bank, the sheriff's office has identified the letter as a fraud. Residents are encouraged not to give out any information.
