EL PASO, Texas — A man contacted L4N about letter he got in the mail. A company called 'Information Reporting Group' sent the letter from Denver, Colorado.
The letter tells the recipient they won more than $2 million. In order to get the prize money, the potential scam victim must send $20 to an address in Canada.
But this man said he knew it was too good to be true.
"They always want you to send money to claim it," Johnny Young said. "So I knew it was a scam."
L4N searched online for the name of the company and the first sites that come up are related to busting scams.
The Better Business Bureau also gives the company an 'F' rating.
