Phone scam warning in Letcher County
WHITESBURG, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Letcher County Sheriff’s Office is warning of a phone scam in the county.
Someone is calling people telling them they have won an out-of-state lottery, according to a post on the sheriff’s office Facebook page.
Investigators are telling people not to fall for it, it’s a scam. How can you win a lottery you never played or bought a ticket for in another state?
Deputies remind people never to give out personal or financial information to someone you don’t know. And, it’s against the law to charge you money is order for you to receive your supposed prize.
