Another Mail Scam Comes To Central Montana

Posted: Updated:

If you receive some mail that claims you're a big winner, you may be the victim of a new scam.

Cascade County Sheriff Bob Edwards has informed us of a potential scam sent to one of his staff members through the US Mail.  The letter claims the recipient is the third place winner in a ten million dollar contest.  It also comes with logos featuring Mega Millions and Publishers Clearing House, along with a check from Omni Plastics in Evansville, Indiana.     

When Edwards contacted Omni, they said their company has nothing to do with the checks, and that this wasn't the first time they've been contacted about the scam.  When the Sheriff contacted the prize claims manager, he didn't get a response and has yet to be called back.     

Sheriff Edwards cautions all citizens to be aware of the scam and if it's too good to be true, it probably is.  If you receive this letter or a similar one, please contact your local law enforcement.
