Lincolnshire Police are warning residents not to fall for a ‘scam’ concerning a genuine local lottery winner. Earlier this year a couple from the Coningsby area won £53 million in the EuroMillions lottery. Since then a number of people have received e-mails, purporting to be from someone acting on behalf of the couple, stating that the recipient is going to be given a large amount of cash. They are then asked to make contact and provide bank details. THESE         E-MAILS ARE PART OF A SCAM. PLEASE DON’T RESPOND. IF SOMETHING SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS!
