How to Recognize an Imposter
You get a call from someone claiming to be a government official, informing you that you’ve won a federally supervised lottery or sweepstakes. They may say they’re from “the national consumer protection agency,” the non-existent National Sweepstakes Bureau, or even the Federal Trade Commission – and it looks like they’re calling from a legitimate number.
They tell you that you’ll have to pay a fee in order to collect your winnings, to cover things like taxes or service charges. You may be asked to send money to an agent of “Lloyd’s of London” or some other well-known insurance company to “insure” delivery of the prize. And you’ll be asked to wire money right away, often to a foreign country.
To make their call seem legitimate, scammers use internet technology to disguise their area code. It may appear that they’re calling from Washington, DC, but they could be calling from anywhere in the world. They also might send e-mails, text messages, and letters.
In reality, no government agency or insurance company is involved, and there are no winnings. Scammers take the money you paid in fees and disappear.

Money has been found in the streets of Indianapolis. About one year ago, another “lost money” story made the news. apparently 3 bags of money fell out of the back of an armored truck. Believe it or not the bags just sat in the middle of the downtown street for quite awhile WOW!Soon though traffic ripped the bags to pieces and $20 bills were scattered all over the street Causing quite a dangerous situation as people tried to grab the money. Finally the police were called because of the insanity of the situation. All said there was nearly $2,000,000.00 worth of cash. Of course that is taking into account the $20k that was scattered !
