Paul Vecker with the Bay County Sheriff's Office says he's seeing the Spanish Lottery scam came to our area a few years ago, but no one fell for it back then. He says he's seeing letters circulating our area again.

Vecker reminds people to not send money to anyone you don't know. To win a lottery, you must enter a lottery. If you did not enter the lottery, you couldn't have won the money.

If you get one of these letters, call the Bay County Sheriff's Office at 747-7400 and ask for scam investigations.
