A fake e-mail is circulating that includes images like the Mega Millions logo. The message goes on to say you have won $520,000. It also has pictures of actual Mega Millions winners. The only way to win the prize is with an actual Mega Millions ticket. If you receive this message or a similar one, do not respond. The scam is likely designed to get victims' personal and financial information.
