Two Brazos Valley residents found out the hard way that you can’t win a sweepstakes you haven’t entered.
Bill McGuire, president of the Better Business Bureau of the Brazos Valley, said Monday that two women in the past month have called his office saying they wired about $1,800 through Western Union to a person who claimed they had won over one million dollars in a sweepstakes. The caller said the money was required to claim the prize.
McGuire said one woman wired her entire tax refund, and now faces foreclosure because the money is unrecoverable.
He said a few tips can help residents avoid falling prey to similar scams:
- Be skeptical of a total stranger who represents a sweepstakes you didn’t enter.
- Don’t wire money, especially as a precondition to release funds.
- If you’re still unsure of the legitimacy of the caller’s claims, get a callback number and call the BBB or police.
