AG Warns Mississippi Residents of Lottery Scam




  • You cannot win a legitimate lottery if you have not entered it. In almost all cases you must purchase a ticket to enter a legitimate lottery. If someone tells you that you’ve won a prize or contest you don’t remember entering, it’s probably a scam.
  • You never have to pay to collect winnings from a legitimate lottery. You pay taxes AFTER you receive the winnings.
  • If you hold a winning lottery ticket, you notify the lottery (they do not notify you; not by email, not by phone, not by mail).
  • It is illegal under U.S. federal law to play ANY foreign lottery from the United States. Many other countries have similar laws.
  • Anyone who suspects they have been a victim of this scam or any other, should contact the Consumer Protection Division of the Attorney General’s Office at 1-800-281-4418 or 601-359-4230. Visit for more information.]]]]> ]]>
