Lottery scam alert

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Florida Lottery is alerting its customers of a lottery scam making the rounds.

Lottery officials are warning people about fake emails, where people are trying to steal your personal information.

They say beware of an email that says you've won $800,000 from the South Africa office.  While it looks official, authorities are calling it a scam.  They say people who contact the international number on the letter are asked for personal information.

FOX 35's Valerie Boey has the warning.
