JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KMOX)-If you get a call or letter saying you’ve won millions of dollars and you must pay fees and taxes to government agencies to collect it, don’t believe it.

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster says the letters appear to be from the FBI, IRS, Justice Department or even his office, and appear to cite a state statute, but they are a scam.

If you receive such a call or letter call the AG’s Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-800-392-8222.
