FBI warns of a new lottery scam involving the Mega Millions Lottery

The FBI’s Atlanta field office is warning Georgia residents to beware of a scam involving the Mega Millions Lottery. Scammers have been contacting Georgia residents and telling them that they have won the lottery. The scammers also tell their victims that they owe an advance fee and must wire transfer thousands of dollars to secure their winnings. The scammers use fake letters and documents with letterhead stationary from the FBI and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp (FDIC) to convince their victims of the authenticity of the lottery win. Persons receiving these scam notifications should file a report with the FBI at http://www.IC3.gov
