Clorox Issues Warning Regarding Lottery Scam

Posted on by Chief Marketer Staff

The Clorox Co. has issued a warning about a lottery scam targeting consumers, particularly the elderly, throughout the U.S.

Victims of the scam report receiving a letter that claims they have won a large cash prize from the International Lottery Sweepstakes of Canada, accompanied by a fraudulent check in the name of either The Clorox Co. or The Brita Products Co., a Clorox subsidiary, to cover lottery fees.

To collect their winnings, victims are instructed to deposit or cash the check, and then either mail or electronically transmit the equivalent amount of money to an address in Canada. In some cases, victims have reported receiving multiple letters and checks, as well as telephone solicitations from individuals claiming to represent the International Lottery Sweepstakes.

Clorox and Brita said they have no connection to the Canadian lottery and are in no way involved with any promotion resembling this scam. In addition to alerting consumers, the companies have notified law enforcement agencies in an effort to identify the perpetrators as quickly as possible.

Individuals who receive the fraudulent notice or have information about the scam should contact their local FBI office for referral to the White Collar Crime squad.
