Lisburn police have issued a warning about a scam letter that has been circulating in the city.

The letter purports to be from the ‘International FIFA World Cup Online Lottery’ and tells the recipient they have won £725,000.

They are then asked to contact an office in London to begin their claims process.

A spokesperson for the police said: “This is a fraud. A scam created by greedy ruthless people that do not care who you are just what you have. Be sure to share this information with whoever you can to get the word out before someone, which could be a friend or family member, gets ripped off.

“For further information on this and other scams out there have a look on the Action Fraud website”.
