The LaRue County Sheriff’s Office is warning LaRue Countians to be wary of a scam known as the “Canadian Lottery.”
Deputy Matt Darst said the scam appears to be targeting local senior citizens.
Thursday, a LaRue County woman received a call from a telemarketer who informed her she had won $125,000 in the Canadian Lottery. To collect, all she had to do was mail a small sum – $3,400 – to cover taxes.
Luckily, she notified authorities before sending any money.
