FBI issues warning over Oprah ticket scam

April 8, 2009 The FBI put out a warning about an "Oprah Millionaire Contest Show" scam.

In an e-mail, the recipient is told they will appear on the show, where money will be given away. Then they are asked to send in money for tickets to Chicago and the talk show.

Harpo Studios says it is not involved with the e-mail and that tickets should never be paid for.

If you get one of these emails, contact the FBI.
