The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says it has received complaints about a lottery scam.
A caller claims to be from the Florida Lottery and tells the victim they have won $8 million.
The caller then asks for a $1,400 processing fee before obtaining the winnings.
The S-O is asking the public not to give out any personal or bank-related information.
