Prosecutor warns about new mail scam
(2007-05-24)
(WOUB) - Athens County Prosecutor Dave Warren is warning people about a new scam that's made its way to the county.

Warren says individuals are receiving letters saying they have won the "Super Seven Contest" and a $250,000 prize that goes with it. The letters come with a bogus check for four grand and ask that money be sent to the sponsor of the contest to pay taxes.

Warren says that anyone who gets one of these checks should not cash it and call the prosecutor's office. He says anyone who does cash the fake check could be held liable to the bank for the amount of that check.
