Grangeville Police Department advises public on Notification of Payment (NOP) scam
GRANGEVILLE – If you’re being asked to send money to receive money, it’s a scam, advises the Grangeville Police Department. GPD advises the public to be aware of a Notification of Payment (NOP) scam letter, purporting to be a contest company and offering a $2.2 million award. This scam is soliciting $20 from the potential victim to receive a $2.2 million award. The letter preys on people’s enthusiasm and puts pressure with a 10-day deadline to respond or lose your option.
Law enforcement advises the maxim, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is,” in such cases. Legitimate contest awards do not require you sending money to receive your prize.
