Warning over Lottery Scam

A new postal scam seems to be targeting the area – residents have been receiving letters claiming to be from the ‘Euro Millions Lottery’ through their doors claiming they have won a large amount of cash.

These letters are asking for people to send an administration fee along with bank details to claim the prize and also include a phone number which is suspected to be a premium rate number.

Police confirmed this is a scam and encourage all residents to destroy any such letters that they receive.

There has been a rise in metal-related thefts across Wednesfield, echoes the rise nationally and Police are encouraging residents to report all metal thefts.

A number of these thefts have taken place in the same streets, so it is important that Police are made aware of these in order to try and catch the offenders.
