Grifton Police Chief Warns About Fake Lottery

Grifton Police Chief Warren Morrisette is sounding the alarm about a fake lottery that he says is new to Eastern Carolina.

Chief Morrisette says a woman got a winning lottery letter from Coastal Trust Financial Lottery. The company says it's based in Westminister London England.

The letter came with a check for $4,892. The "winner" is told to deposit the check but then send $3,679.21 to a man named Charles Jackson in London. Chief Morrisette says the check looks very real, but the bank has verified the account is fake..
