Fraud Alert: Peterborough woman loses $13,000 to fraudsters in “Lottery Scam”

The Peterborough Police Service is warning residents of the lottery scam after a Peterborough woman lost $13,000 to fraudsters.

On July 3, 2018 the victim received a phone call from a man who told her she had won $2.5 million and a car. She was told that in order to receive the money she first had to transfer $700 into an account to which the victim complied. Then came three further requests for money for $1,500, $800 and $10,000. The victim also complied with these requests and transferred the money into various accounts.

The complainant then received one last call from someone pretending to be from the Canada Revenue Agency stating that if she sent them $8,000 they would hire an investigator to get her money back. The victim did not comply with this request and the incidents were reported to police.

Our Service has also recently received several reports of persons reporting a scam phone call from an unknown caller stating they have won the Mega Millions.

The caller is telling residents that in order to collect their prize they must purchase iTunes gifts cards and then call the scammers back with the codes on the cards. Several persons were told that when purchasing the cards they should not mention what the cards are for but to state that the cards are for family or grandchildren.

Warning Signs – How to Protect Yourself 

  • Known lottery and sweepstakes companies such as Reader’s Digest and Publisher’s Clearinghouse will never request money up front in order to receive a prize.
  • Any fees associated to winnings will never be paid through a money service business such as Western Union, MoneyGram or by loading funds to prepaid credit cards such as Green Dot.
  • Any unsolicited phone call advising that you have won a lottery is fake. The only way to participate in any foreign lottery is to go to the country of origin and purchase a ticket in person. A ticket cannot be purchased on your behalf.
  • Never give out personal information over the phone, no matter who the caller claims to represent.

From the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre.

If you have been the victim of a scam, meaning you have lost money, please call the Peterborough Police Service at 705-876-1122. To report a scam please contact the Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre at 1-888-495-8501 or online
