Fraudulent foreign lottery and sweepstakes letters are a common scam, and recipients should turn these pieces of mail over to their local postmaster. These fraudulent letters are often sent to elderly people, who may not be able to identify these bogus solicitations.

The international lottery is a growing industry that is worth billions of dollars. Two Grand Valley multimedia journalism students, McKenna Peariso and Eric Deyo, teamed up with professor Kelly Lowenstein to investigate the global lottery industry as part of their advanced reporting techniques course. Their investigation has uncovered tax evasion by eight gaming companies that have outsized influence in the worldwide lottery market. They’ve also uncovered that a nonprofit lobbying group is funded by these companies and aims to promote responsible gambling.
