Florida Lottery Scam Alert

The Florida Lottery has issued a scam warning.

Scammers are sending out emails in an effort to get your personal information.

The email says that you won a prize and you should contact the person listed in the email to claim that prize.

The email however does not ask you for any personal information but once you call them, the scammers request your financial information and that a tax fee must be paid to claim your prize.

The Florida Lottery is urging you to not respond to the email but to report it immediately to the Florida Lottery's division of security at 850-487-7730.
