BROOKLYN - The NYPD has issued a warning about possible lottery scams.

Officials say to never send in money or payments to claim a prize and never give personal information out.

They say all winnings over $600 need to be claimed through New York State Lottery offices.

The warning comes after no winning ticket was drawn Saturday night for a record jackpot of nearly $950 million.
