A South Fulton resident has reported a scam to The Messenger hoping to warn other residents.
The reader said she received a check in the mail for $3,455, along with a letter stating she was the second prize winner of the European, African and USA Consumer sweepstakes in conjunction with USA Departmental Stores. She said although she does enter sweepstakes, the letter stated the check was to help her pay processing fees. She said she knew if she had actually won, she would not have to pay any processing fees.
The resident reported the scam to the Obion County Sheriff’s Department.
