A scam alert in Madison County after a woman falls victim to a lottery scheme.
Richmond Police are now warning people about the scam.
The woman says she received a letter from Vision Global Technology Solutions in California claiming she had won $57,000.
The only stipulation, the woman had to cash a check she received for $3,900 and send the money back to the company before she collected her winnings.
Richmond police say they will probably not be able to recover the victims money.
