“Lottery scam” gets North Perth woman

A North Perth woman has fallen victim to a “lottery scam”.

On Sunday she told the OPP that she’d gotten a text message saying she’d won $950,000.

The catch was she had to send some money to process the award.

She sent $635 and got a text message saying she needed to send more.  That’s when she knew she’d been scammed.
