Ohio attorney general says reports of sweepstakes scams rising
from Bloomberg Businessweek
The state's attorney general says reports of Ohio residents being ripped off by sweepstakes scams are on track to double over last year. Cordray says senior citizens are most vulnerable and sometimes turn over personal information and thousands of dollars. He advises people not to send money to collect a prize and to be wary of telemarketers posing as government representatives saying they recovered victims' lost sweepstakes money.
