A NEW lottery scam mailshot is dropping through letterboxes in Huddersfield.
Salendine Nook man David Ellis contacted the Examiner after receiving a letter on Tuesday.
It came from the International Lottery Board in Madrid and told Mr Ellis he had won 750,810 euros in the July draw.
The letter came with a claim form, which asked Mr Ellis to submit personal information and bank details so he could claim his prize.
Mr Ellis had not entered any lottery and said he realised the letter was a scam.
But he is worried that some people may send their details.
He said: “It is the first time I have had such a letter but I wasn’t taken in.
“But I thought some people might send the form off and put their bank details at risk.
“Police told me to put the letter in the bin and I would urge other people to do the same.”
