Lottery scam warning issued

If you get a letter that says you've won $615,000 in an international lottery, don't go on a shopping spree just yet.

The letter says your money is already deposited in a secure account in your name but because of a mix-up, you need to keep it secret for the time being. You must claim the prize by July 15th and all you have to do is fill out a form that includes your personal financial information.

Don't fall for it, it's a scam. Tulsa Police fraud unit Sgt Tony Celino: "When they're wanting your date of birth, social security number or banking information, that's a red flag, right there."
