RIDGWAY, ELK COUNTY – State Police are reminding people to be aware of giveaways that seem too good to be true.

They say con artists are conducting illegal activity throughout Elk County. Police say the most common scam is sending letters to residents saying they won a contest and asking for money before the prize will be delivered.

Police say the contest is a fake, and ask anyone who is a victim to call police.
