Olympics Lottery scam

A HUCKNALL councillor has warned residents of a scam that has links to the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Letters, headed ‘2012 Summer Olympic Lottery’, are circulating in the Dispatch district. They suggest you have won cash and need to submit your bank-account number.

But it is fake, and Coun Mick Murphy (Con), of Hucknall, who is Notts County Council’s lead member for community safety, said: “If something looks too good to be true, it probably is”.
