Letters have been sent to people in Cookstown purporting to be from a lottery.
And police are this week advising residents to be wary of this unsolicited correspondence which asks for bank details.
The warning has been issued following a report from a person who received a letter from a ‘lottery’, offering a weekly subscription and requesting bank details.
The PSNI says under no circumstances should the public disclose details of their bank or building society accounts to any unauthorised person.
If anyone has concerns they should contact police in Cookstown for advice.
