Fraudulent Sweepstakes Alert

A number of individuals have reported to us that they, or a family member or friend, have received a telephone call from someone pretending to be a federal government employee, informing them they have supposedly won hundreds of thousands of dollars in a sweepstakes allegedly conducted by Make-A-Wish.  The supposed winners are told that, in order to claim their “prize,” they must first pay thousands of dollars to cover taxes and/or insurance on the alleged winnings.

This is a SCAM!  Make-A-Wish does NOT conduct – nor is it affiliated with – any sweepstakes whatsoever.  Likewise, no matter what the caller says, you can rest assured he or she is NOT employed by, or otherwise associated with, the Consumer Protection Agency, the Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”), or any other government agency.  See FTC consumer alert regarding “Government Imposter Scams.”

If you or someone you know receives a call regarding this bogus Make-A-Wish sweepstakes, please notify us as soon as possible at SenhqNyregf@jvfu.bet, or at (800) 722-9474.
