At 8:28 a.m. on Monday, Delphos Police were called to a bank in Delphos in reference to a fraudulent check. 
After speaking with bank officials, it was found the victim had received a letter advising them they had won the lottery and upon cashing the check, the victim needed to return a large sum of money back to the sender for a processing fee.

The check was in fact no good and was an attempt to scam the victim out of money. Police have received several complaints in the past few weeks of similar scams to send money back to a sender for a processing fee or a similar reason.

Police warn residents any notice they receive stating they won a large amount of money or if they are selling an item that the buyer wants to send more money than the selling price and that the seller needs to send money back, it is likely a scam and they should not send any money without checking with a local bank or authorities to verify the check is legitimate.
