Consumer Fraud Alert

March 11, 2011 - Safeco Insurance Company (a member of the Liberty Mutual Group) has become aware of an increasing number of fraudulent letters claiming that the recipients 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. The lottery letters often ask the recipient to call an international phone number and to submit personal and banking information.

Safeco does not sponsor, promote or engage in lotteries. Our business is insurance, not lotteries.

If you receive one of these letters or counterfeit Safeco checks, we strongly recommend that you NOT attempt to deposit or cash the check, and do not send any personal information or money to the organizations or persons listed in the letter.

To report these fraudulent lottery letters and counterfeit checks you can e-mail us at
