A new twist on an old con. Thousands were told they'd won a lottery, but had to pay fees in order to receive their prize. But this time fake cheques were part of the equation. Victims were told to deposit the cheque and return the money. By the time the fake cheques bounced, the crooks were long gone and the victims were on the hook for the money from the banks.
