Tennessee lottery warns against e-mail fraud

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee lottery officials are warning about a fraudulent e-mail suggesting recipients are prize winners and asking for money to cover processing fees.

The Tennessee Lottery never requires fees to claim a prize. Officials said anyone who receives such an e-mail or letter should disregard it.

The scam is being tried nationwide, officials said.
