There's a lottery scam circulating in Lee County. One victim says she received a $98,000 check in the mail. The check also came with a letter telling her that she won the Canadian Lottery. It also said all she had to do was pay the taxes on her winnings.
The alert Opelika resident called police who warned her the check would bounce and she would wind up footing the bill.
Police say use caution and common sense to avoid losing your money. If you receive a check in the mail, make sure that you are actually owed that money. If you are not, do not cash check and contact police immediately.
