Police Warning – Olympic Lottery Scam

The Metropolitan Police Service has received a number of letters and emails forwarded on by members of the public advising them that they have won an Olympic Lottery. There are a number that have been falsely signed off by the “Reverend Green” who is in fact the LOCOG chaplain.

Most of the letters and emails direct the recipient to contact a telephone number to make the claim. Some of these telephone numbers are linked to previous reports of fraud.

This is a scam. If you have received such a letter or email do not respond in any way. You may wish to report the matter to Action Fraud via the internet by visiting actionfraud.org.uk or on the telephone – 0300 123 2040.
