He didn't go to Madrid, Spain and he didn't buy a lotto ticket. That's how Dale Cottingham of Colorado Springs knew... he wasn't a third place international lottery winner.
Dale told me the old Loteria Primitiva scam was back. He was mailed a letter explaining he had won 815,950 euros. He just needed to call a Dr. Miguel Torres and pay a 10% fee and he'd be sitting pretty.
Dale had just a few days to act or his winnings would be returned. Just another tactic to get him to act without thinking. Thankfully he smelled a rat.
Remember, you can't win a contest you never entered. You can't play in an overseas lottery unless you're there and purchased a ticket... and you don't have to pay fees before collecting your prize.
Thanks Dale... and beware of crooks looking to rip you off.
