Conway Police warn of scam with $100K claim

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) After receiving several complaints from residents in the Conway area, police are asking residents to be wary of a scam they might be receiving in the mail.

Catina Hipp, spokeswoman for the Conway Police Department, said residents have been receiving letters in the mail from "Financial Gaming Services" claiming they have an unclaimed settlement of $100,000.

The letter goes on to say the resident should cash the check and then wire the money to a location only revealed once the resident calls a number in the letter.

Police are warning residents that the letter is a scam, and are asking for anyone to call police if they receive a similar scam letter.
