Mega Millions scam hitting your email inbox

The Florida Lottery is warning people to look out for a scam making its way to your email inbox.

The emails, which look real because of the Mega Millions letterhead, indicate the recipients are part of a group of people selected at random to take part in an ongoing Mega Millions drawing. The emails tell people they’ve may have won $1 million and need to submit personal and financial information to claim the prize.

According to the Florida Lottery, players will never be asked for bank accountinformation. More safety tips can be found here.

To report a lottery scam, call the Florida Lottery’s Division of Security at 850-487-7730.
