Lottery scam warning

Date: May 24, 2007

A BLEADON woman is warning people not to be caught out by a lottery scam.

Sheridan Barmaki, aged 48, of Shiplate Road, received a letter from La Primitiva Europea saying she had come third in the Spanish Euromillions.

Sheridan had recently visited Malaga and thought the scam might have been true.

She said: "It said I'd bought a lottery ticket and come third place winning 615,810 Euros.

"I checked on the internet and the company is known for lottery scams. I'm quite on the ball with things like this, but even I thought it could be possible.
