Please be aware of a scam going around.
You may be contacted by phone, mail or email stating that you have won or will be given a large amount of money, and in return you are asked to send a smaller amount of money to pay for certain fees or something. Never send money to someone you do not know. If is sounds to good to be true it usually is. If you have any doubts you can call your local police department and they can advise you if it sounds like a scam.
