Iowa Lottery warns of Facebook scams

Posted: Updated:
(KWWL) -
The Iowa Lottery is warning of a scam happening on Facebook using Powerball & Mega Millions names.
The scammers are using graphics to create what looks like an over-sized, ceremonial check for $1 million; the image comes with a headline suggesting Powerball and Mega Millions is "giving away a free $1 million jackpot online instantly."
The Iowa Lottery says these are a scam, do not fall for it. In order to win a Powerball of Mega Millions prize, you have to buy a ticket. 
People on Facebook who've clicked the links have reported their accounts have been hacked, and the scam keeps spreading to more and more accounts.
