Oregon Jackpot Lottery Scam Warning

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon Lottery is warning of jackpot scams. Following the one-point-three-billion-dollar Powerball winner in Oregon, the scammers send text messages claiming the winner is donating prize money at random to 10 people. The victim is asked to call a phone number to claim the money. The lottery says other scams might also be circulating. Don't give your personal or financial information over the phone and if something appears too good to be true, it usually is.
