Sheriff's Office warns of lottery scam

WOODSTOCK - The McHenry County Sheriff's Office is warning residents about a lottery/sweepstakes scam that could occur by mail, according to a news release.

The scam involves a "real looking check" being sent to the recipient, the release states. Legitimate lotteries will never ask residents to provide information or to send them money to cover "taxes."

More information about lottery scams can be found at www.answers.usa.gov.
