Beware of Spanish Lottery Scam – Cllr Peter Anderson

1 December, 2009

Sinn Féin Councillor Peter Anderson has advised people to be aware of a scam notifying people of windfall winnings in the ‘El Gordo Spanish Lottery’.

Peter Anderson said:

“I have been approached by a constituent who received notification that they had won close to one million pounds in the ‘El Gordo Spanish Lottery’.  They were advised that in order to claim their winnings that specific information was required. The information is very detailed and personal including bank account numbers, Debit account etc.

“People should treat this type of correspondence as they would all other junk mail. Bin it!
