Maybe you've received an email from Nigeria explaining how you can get a percentage of the Prince's fortune, or from England informing you of your winning Lottery ticket, just waiting to be claimed. These are scams, and I'd bet there's one of these in your inbox right now.
In this episode of Reel Lottery, J.W. interviews Travis Ford from the Missouri Attorney General's office. Travis is the Consumer Education Coordinator in Attorney General Jay Nixon's Consumer Protection division and recently spoke to a group of Lottery millionaires about scams and fraud. He maintains the Consumer Blog which addresses similar topics, and for future reference I've added it to the blog roll. Since there are always questions about Lottery scams, we thought we'd ask Travis what to look for.
