Lottery Scams

Lottery scams often begin with an unexpected email notification, phone call, or mailing explaining that "You have won!" a large sum of money in a lottery. The target of the scam is then asked to pay "processing fees" or "transfer charges" so that the winnings can be distributed. Sadly they will never receive any lottery payment but will have lost the money they paid.

Warning Signs:

  • You are told you'll win a contest you did not enter.
  • Offered "too-good-to-be-true" prizes.
  • You must pay to win.
  • Asked to receive/send funds from/to another party.

What if you're a victim?

  • Contact Gesa Credit Union to report the fraud and put stop payments on any checks or wire transfers in our out of your accounts.
  • Report the fraud to The Federal Trade Commission at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov.
