Raleigh, N.C. — The N.C. Education Lottery issued a scam warning Thursday about fake email and social media accounts claiming to be the Cumberland County man who won $345 million in the Powerball game this month.

The organization said one scammer posed as Charles W. Jackson Jr. online and offered to make a $4 million donation to an organization.

The scammer then asked for $500 deposit.

Other scammers posing as Jackson have promised money to social media followers.

“I’m giving away $100,000 to my first 2k followers $$,” one said, according to the N.C. Education Lottery.

“Unfortunately, scams like these are all too common,” Mark Michalko, executive director of the N.C. Education Lottery, said in a statement. “Anyone who makes a promise of a donation or prize but wants you to give money first is trying to trick you.”

As of Thursday, the N.C. Education Lottery said, there have been 36 cases of social media impersonators of Jackson.

The organization said people should never respond to letters, emails, phone calls or social media posts asking for money in exchange for a donation or prize.

People should never give their credit card, Social Security number, driver’s license, passport or bank account numbers over the phone to someone promising a donation or lottery prize.

People who believe they have been the victim of a scam or an attempted scam can call the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Section at 1-877-5-NOSCAM or file a consumer complaint online.
