Please be aware of a scam that has been contacting Brookline residents, specifically targeting the elderly.

This scam is under a company that calls themselves International Award Advisors – Notification & Disbursements Department. Enclosed in the letter is a Money & Prize Eligibility Notification with an obscenely high money amount, apparently being awarded to the recipient.

The letter we received supposedly awarded the recipient $2,500,000 as long as the recipient fills out a form and mails that, and $20, in a return envelope. This is FALSE. This payment won’t be returned to you. If you are contacted by this scam, please inform the Department.
