FERGUS FALLS (KBRF) - A Fergus Falls man is out a very large sum of money from a sweepstakes scam.

The resident reported that he received a letter from a BPM Inc. that he had won a cash prize. However, to collect the prize he need to pay a fee which amounted to $7,986.

The man paid the supposed ‘fee’, but soon thereafter realized that it was a scam and that he had lost his money, and had not won any prize at all.

Fergus Falls Police remind residents that they should not have to pay any money to win a legitimate prize from a sweepstakes.
