ALERT: Lottery Scam in Eastern Wyoming

(Wyoming) Have you ever heard of El Gordo? It's the annual lottery held in Spain every Christmas. It means "the big one," and it's considered the largest lottery in the world. Last year the payout for the first place winner was 720 million Euros, about $791 million U.S. It's been going on since 1892. The Sublette County Sheriff is warning residents of a scam here in Wyoming, involving letters like this one claiming you may have won a big prize from El Gordo. Considering how these scams seem to move around the state fairly quickly, we thought we'd let you know to be on the lookout.
