OH LOTTERY SCAM
May 6, 2021
Information was received this date, 6 May 2021, from a concerned citizen about a call from the Ohio Lottery Commission. The caller, phone no. 800-516-1608, stated that the citizen had won one million dollars through the Mega Millions. The citizen was advised all they had to do was to send $500 for an acquisition fee to transfer the money. This is a very clever and realistic looking SCAM….. let me repeat … SCAM.
Please NEVER give anyone your information unless YOU initiate the contact. It something looks too good to be true it probably is.
