Beware of costly lottery scams

One scam victim is warning others about a letter she received that told her she won millions of dollars. The woman hiding her face lost her life savings to a popular scam. "They fool you. They say, "We are in the process of getting it to you," but you don't get anything," says the woman, who does not want to be identified. She fears con artists will continue to target her and her money. Her nightmare began with this letter telling her she was guaranteed to win $2.5 million in a lottery sweepstakes. All she had to do was pay a processing fee and taxes.
