Some Barlborough residents have received letters informing them that they have won money in the International Lottery Sweepstake Espana. The letters are addressed personally with the recipients full name, are posted from Malaga and look authentic (Christmas stamps etc). The recipient is asked to ring +34-639-363-364 (before the 24th December) to speak to their claims agent regarding the processing of their claim. This will be a premium rate phone line. Do not ring the telephone number if you recieve one of these letters, it is a scam.
So far, it looks like the people who are receiving these letters are the ones who child benefit details were lost last year by the government.
