Officers warn of lottery scam

(WEAU)--The Wisconsin Lottery and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection are urging players to think twice before giving out personal information to anyone who contacts them and says they have won a lottery prize.

The lottery has heard from several players who recently have been contacted about supposedly winning a special drawing associated with the Mega Millions jackpot game.

Officials say the special drawing does not exist and the call is a scam.
