I received a letter from a foreign country telling me I won millions of dollars in the lottery, how do I know if it’s real?

Remember, if it sounds too good, it probably is. This definitely applies to foreign lottery scams. Con artists make up reasons for why you need to wire them money, i.e., taxes, special courier, etc., or why you should give them your banking information. The criminal is certainly not planning on making a deposit, just a withdrawal of your savings. It is illegal to participate in a foreign lottery and if you did receive a letter, report this to the United States Postal Inspection Service Office
