Postal scams

  • Never send money or personal details to a company in order to claim a prize or winnings. No legitimate business will ask for money to claim a prize.
  • Watch out for letters with too good to be true offers. It’s probably a scam.
  • Watch out for lotteries, prize draws, clairvoyants, catalogues, secret deals, “get rich quick” schemes and inheritance notifications.
  • If you get lots of junk or suspect mail, get a trusted friend or family member to help you sort through it.
  • A common tactic used by scammers is to ask you reply to a PO Box or use a pre-paid envelope.
