Illinois Lottery Scam

A consumer alert tonight, an Illinois Lottery scam is targeting victims throughout the state.

Phony E-mails are sent out by crooks, the E-mails claim we've won the state lottery but to get our prize we have to give out our personal information specifically to a bank in Nigeria where the so called money is being held.

Don't fall for it! Illinois lottery reps say it's bogus and they remind us winners are never notified by E-mail.

A Rockford neighborhood is being asked to boil its water until further notice.

The boil order on the East side extends from Colorado Avenue to the north, Silent Wood Trail to the east, Greendale Drive to the south and where Chadwick and Greendale dead end to the west.

The order was issued after a contractor closed a valve this morning resulting in a pressure loss in that area.
