Lottery Scam

Safeco Insurance® Company (a member of Liberty Mutual Group) is aware of an increasing number of fraudulent letters informing recipients they have won a lottery. The letter is accompanied by an official-looking Safeco check. These are counterfeit checks and should NOT be deposited or cashed.

Here’s what to do if you receive one of these letters or counterfeit Safeco checks:

  • Do not deposit or cash the check.
  • Do not call the provided phone number.
  • Do not wire or otherwise provide any money to the organizations or persons listed.
  • Do not share any personal or banking information, either over the phone or via email, with the organizations or persons listed.
