Florida Lottery warns of scam

Posted:

FLORIDA (WFLX) - Florida Lottery officials are warning you of a new scam. They say their logo and letterhead are being used in e-mails seeking personal information to claim a fake prize.

The e-mail tells the person to contact them to claim a share of the jackpot. Once the person responds, they are sent a follow-up e-mail requesting financial information.

Lottery officials say they do not contact players to let them know they've won a prize unless they entered a promotional game or second-chance drawing on its Web site.
