Keremeos resident Doreen Topping is warning inhabitants of the Lower Similkameen to beware of a possible scam

Keremeos resident Doreen Topping is warning inhabitants of the Lower Similkameen to beware of a possible scam presently being worked through the mail.

Topping received notice that she had been nominated to play for a substantial cash prize.

The notice stated that Topping would be suspended from consideration for a $15,000 grand prize – or a minimum $1,000 runner up prize – unless she quickly sent a $20 “preferred customer discount” fee.

The notice comes in a green “express courier” envelope and contains two official looking forms, from a company calling itself “ Opportunities Unlimited Publications.”
