A Lewistown man was able to avoid a scam originating on social media.  According to Borough Police, on June 13th Darryl Woodward was notified he had won $500,000 through the Facebook Lottery.  He was instructed to send $400 via Western Union to South Carolina.   Woodward realized it was a scam.  He contacted police who forwarded the information to the Federal Trade Commission for further investigation.  Borough Police reminds residents not to send money, or provide personal or banking information of any type to suspicious individuals over the phone or through social media.  A helpful tip: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
