Lottery scam

Two Glenwood City residents got lucky. They were not out any money following a lottery scam that occurred on Feb. 6.

They contacted the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office to report that someone had contacted them about winning the lottery — and they needed to pay taxes before they could claim the money. As instructed, they opened up a new savings account and provided the numbers to the suspect(s). Shortly after doing so, their bank contacted them to inform them that money had been moved from one of their accounts to the other. Since they had not authorized the transfer, their account was frozen and they contacted their other banks to inform them of the fraudulent incident.

The pair were advised to change all of their account numbers and no longer answer phone calls from the suspects. Deputies called the number that had been contacting the couple but the number went to Google services and not an actual person.
