Call For Action  wants to warn you about another scam making it's way around southern Colorado with a letter congratulating you for winning the Market Survey Sweepstakes lottery.... DON'T FALL FOR IT! 

 

The letter is from "DCN & TRUST CO. INCORPORATED" and the address listed is 588 Park Royal Avenue in Liverpool, U.K. It provides a claim number and everything, saying you've won a Market Survey Sweepstakes lottery. It also says your name was attached to a ticket number, with a serial number and it lists the winning lottery numbers- Finally, it says you've won a total cash prize of $125,000 DOLLARS!  Don't let all the numbers and "confirmations" fool you!   It's a scam!

Of course, a check is enclosed for $4,255.00.  The KKTV viewer who called this for what it was... a scam... was smart enough to call the bank listed on the check before going to cash in his winnings- the woman at Citizen's State Bank confirmed for him that the check was fraudulant

I've scanned in the "winning" letter so you can tell if you've received one of these scams in the mail. media.graytvinc.com/documents/DCN+AND+TRUST+CO+INCORPORATED+SCAM.pdf

 

Don't be scammed- read Betty's Buzz!
