An Internet scam involving emails that appear to be from a lottery winning Stafford County couple is hitting people all over the world.
When Dave and Nancy Honeywell won the 217-million-dollar lottery jackpot, they gave a chunk to a local non-profit. It's handed out about 300-grand of it in grants, but says these e-mails are bogus. They ask the recipient to give a bank account number, so the gift can be deposited.
