A sweepstakes seam which conned a consumer in Roanoke, Virginia recently leads back to Duluth, Minnesota. The Better Business Bureau of Minnesota and North Dakota (BBB) was contacted by the BBB of Western Virginia last week after a consumer in their area reported mailing a money order to someone in Duluth to pay fees on pur- ported sweepstakes winnings of $1.5 million dollars. The winnings were non-existent and the consumer lost the money they sent to the Duluth address. The BBB advises consum- ers to be extremely leery of letters, faxes, emails or phone calls telling them they've won prizes, lotteries or sweepstakes. "Sweepstakes seams are prevalent nation- wide and they tantalize peo- ple with promises of instant wealth for relatively low upfront payments," said Dana Badgerow, president and CEO of the BBB. "For a chance at a big payday, many people figure laying out $500 to $3,500 of their own money is worth any risk. We're here to tell you it's not." In the case of the Roanoke consumer, they were contact- ed by phone and told they had won the prize of $1.5 million dollars. Originally, they were told they would need to pay $3,500 upfront to receive their winnings, but the consumer told the scam- mers they couldn't afford that. After settling on a fee of $250, the consumer mailed that amount to a Duluth address. According to the United States Postal Inspection Service (USPIS), which investigated this mat- ter, there is an individual in Duluth actively participating in this seam. This individual is believed to be keeping a small portion of payments they collect and wiring the rest to Jamaica, a hotbed for scams targeting Americans. This person has been warned their mail will be monitored and that they run the risk of being arrested if they contin- ue to process payments from victims of this scare. "Postal Inspectors want to remind individuals if you are contacted by anyone that directs you to send money to pay for a prize or sweep- stakes that you have won, odds are it's a scam," said U.S. Postal Inspector Jeffery Long. "Before you send money away, run the offer by a friend or family member to see if they think it's a good idea. Always be sure to do your homework first." Sweepstakes and lottery scams steal millions of dol- lars from unsuspecting peo- ple every year. Legitimate lottery or sweepstakes com- panies will never ask you to pay money upfront in order to collect your winnings. They will also not ask you for personal information. If you receive any form of noti- fication that you are a prize winner in a lottery or sweep- stakes, contact the BBB ( and check it out before you become the next victim of this type of scheme. If you fall victim to a sweepstakes scam, report your experience to local law enforcement. If the mail ser- vice was involved, you should contact the USPIS at https://postalinspectors. The BBB is also warning consumers not to take part in perpetrating sweepstakes scams.

They often don't realize they're going to work for seammers and their 'job' involves forwarding pay- ments from seam victims or reshipping stolen merchan- dise (or merchandise paid for with stolen credit cards) out of the country. Worse, their compensation is a small por- tion of the illicit proceeds they forward on to the opera- tors of the seam or a flat pay- ment for each order they re- ship. According to the USPIS, people who assist criminals in schemes like this are committing a felony. To avoid becoming tangled up in a reshipping seam, consum- ers are advised to steer clear of any questionable employ- ment offers and not to accept packages at their address for people they don't know. If you've been tricked into participating in one of these reshipping seams, you should: Cease communication with operators who try to solicit your help in reshipping items. Keep all correspondence (emails, faxes, etc.) related to these seams. If you already have mer- chandise from such an offer, don't mail it. Contact the U.S. Postal Inspection Service at 1-877-876-2455. They'll help return stolen items back to the rightful 0wners.
