Resident spots scam in lottery letter

Chino Valley Review

An elderly Chino Valley resident spotted a scam right away when he received a letter about a bogus $1 million lottery winning this past week.

The resident did not want to give his name, but went to local law enforcement, which advised him to ask the Review staff to publish a warning to other readers who also may receive the letter.

The letter is from "The National Lottery" and "Nationwide Trust, Inc.," stating "final notice of unclaimed winnings" and asks the recipient to keep the award letter "strictly confidential" until processed.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office website directs people experiencing a fraud incident to report it through the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) website,, which is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National White Collar Crime Center.

The Chino Valley Police Department website,, has lots of information about scams, including sweepstakes and lottery scams. The website advises citizens to report a scam to the Better Business Bureau at, or just to check out a business or charity. The website reminds people to never give their Social Security number, bank account number or credit card numbers to someone who has contacted them to ask for the numbers.
