Oprah Scam

A scam alert tonight for all you Oprah fans on a phony prize claiming to be from the show's summer sweepstakes.

Here's how it works, con artists send us letters with checks inside made payable to us. We're told to deposit the checks and then send money to cover fees.

Don't buy it! The checks are fake and Oprah reps say winners of the actual contest have already been notified.

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan is calling it consumer fraud.
