      Lottery Scam targeting local senior citizens

      Senior citizens are being targeted in yet another lottery scam that's asking for money

      According to some employees, senior citizens have been going to a local CVS to load Greed Dot Visa Cards with $300 because they won the lottery and need to put money on the card in order to receive their winnings. Those CVS employees say they've been informing senior citizens that they are being scammed and to call local authorities.

      According to Capt. Craig Dodd with the Dougherty County Sheriff's Office, they're doing the right thing. He says if you get a call on your cell phone about winning the lottery, he says do not give the people money and call local authorizes to report the scam.
