DUBUQUE (KWWL) -
The Dubuque Police Department is warning of an email scam that appears to come from a Powerball winner offering to donate some of their winning to the recipient.
Lieutenant Scott Baxter says the email reads as follows:
My name is Nancy Honeywell, on February 6, 2013 my husband (Dave Honeywell) won the Powerball jackpot of $217 Million and we have decided to donate $1,924,108.00 USD to you to improve the lot of individuals all over the world. On receipt of this email, you should count yourself as the lucky individual. Kindly get back to me at your earliest convenience.
Visit Powerball web page for further verification:
Baxter says that while the Honeywell's did actually win a Powerball jackpot recently, the email is not from them. He says that if you receive this email you should block the sender and delete the email. Do not respond to the email or click on any link inside of it.
