Mega Millions email is a scam, Florida Lottery says Staff Reports 10/09/2017 Our State If you got an email saying you won $1 Million in Mega Millions, it’s a scam, the Florida Lottery said Monday. Scammers are behind the email, seeking “to obtain personal and financial information,” the Lottery said in a news release. “Do not respond to these emails—if you have not purchased a ticket, you cannot win a prize,” it said. “The email features the Mega Millions logo as part of the letterhead, and states that the recipient was among a group of randomly selected people to participate in an ongoing drawing,” the Lottery said. “Individuals are asked to provide general information about themselves in order to participate. The email goes on to warn the recipient not to share this information with other people in order to avoid impersonation and a double claim.” But Lottery players “will never be required to transfer funds to secure their winnings for … any Florida Lottery game,” it said.
