The Liberty Police Department is investigating a complaint regarding a scam in which a letter suggests the recipient has won a sweepstakes through Helzberg’s Jewelers. With the letter is a $4,500 check to cover expenses of claiming the $450,000 prize. The letter requests that the recipient then send $3,500 to an address in Ireland to release the winnings.
Helzberg has verified that this is not a sweepstakes the company is sponsoring.
Anyone who receives a similar letter should call the Liberty Police Department at 816.439.4715.
