Loteria Nacional Scam

March 6, 2019

Two people from Birstall visited Loughborough Police Station and reported that they had received letters informing them that they were in the Loteria Nacional.

They were asked to send details of their bank accounts in order to receive their winnings!  They suspected it was a scam and this was confirmed by the Police.

Just remember that you have to enter a raffle or lottery before you can win.

If it is the first you have heard of it, it is almost certainly a scam that you should ignore.
