Scam Artists Continue To Plaque Area

Last updated on Wednesday, February 7, 2007

(BEDFORD) - Scam artists have been hitting the area with letters and counterfeit checks.

The Bedford Chamber of Commerce relates that one member received a letter and a $4,970 cashiers check from ECasino Universal Gaming. The letter states they have won a $68,000 Sweepstakes.

An investigation determined the check was bogus and the company fake. According to the Chamber all local lending institutions will never contact anyone by a letter or email and ask for your banking information.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If you have any questions, contact the Bedford Chamber of Commerce.
