Police offer citizens advice about mail fraud and mail scams
Surprise, AZ (December 10, 2015) The Surprise Police are offering some helpful advice and tips to the public on mail scams and mail fraud protection. It may sound cliché, but the best advice we can offer is “if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”.
Whether it is illegal sweepstakes information, fake lottery scams, chain letters, foreign lotteries by mail, free vacation scams, or other free-prize schemes, the recipient must VERIFY, VERIFY, and VERIFY. If you think you have received a fraudulent scheme or other scam through the mail, contact your local police department and speak with someone about the incident.
Additionally, if you have other questions regarding mail fraud or if you need to file a report, please contact the US Postal Inspection Service (1-877-876-2455).
