Olympic lottery scam warning issued

Residents are being warned not to respond to a scam letter which claims they’ve won a £525,000 prize in an Olympic lottery draw.

Derbyshire County Council’s trading standards team has received complaints about a letter trying to get people’s personal details.

It claims to be from the 2012 Summer Olympic Lottery and tells the recipient they have won a share of a £105 million prize pot.

The letter asks them to return a form completed with their personal details to unlock the prize.

Anyone who receives a letter should call 08454 040506.
