McLeod County reports mail scam
GLENCOE – Residents were advised Wednesday about a mail scam advising “You are the lucky winner of $750,000 in Lottery 7,” according to a McLeod County Sheriff’s Office news release.
The letter included a debit card and told the receiver to cash the debit card and send the cash in the form of a check to another individual in another state, before they receive another letter with another check advising them about a package being delivered by UPS.
“Unfortunately, this is a scam. Please don’t respond to this scam or cash the check or debit card,” read the news release.
