North Smithfield Police are warning residents of a scam, which could result in the loss of a large sum of money.

An individual received an open envelope in the mail from "Better Homes and Gardens," stating they won a large amount of money. The person was encouraged to send a check for $9,500 to a designated address in order to collect the winnings.

The North Smithfield Police want the public to be aware of potential scams and that the incident is still under investigation.
