Law Enforcement Warn of Lottery Scams on Facebook

Posted:
Henry Co., VA - The Henry County Sheriff’s Office has become aware of a recent scam that was attempted using Facebook.

A Henry County resident received notification through his Facebook account that he had won a lottery with a message asking for his personal information.

These scams are often very convincing and attempt to gain a person’s trust. If a notification is received of winning a lottery or anyone requesting your personal information and you are unaware of its validity, contact law enforcement immediately.

Henry County Sheriff’s Office is urging the public to be conscious of this and other types of scams.
