Think you're getting $1 million from Oprah Winfrey? Not so, says the FBI.
The FBI issued a warning today that an "Oprah Millionaire Contest Show" e-mail is merely nothing more than a scam.
In the e-mail, the recipient is told they'll appear on an episode of Winfrey's talk show where $1 million will be given away.
Recipients are told they must purchase a transportation ticket to Chicago and pay to get into the show -- and must send the money to the sender.
Harpo put out a statement on its Web site saying the company and the show "are not sponsors nor do we have any involvement whatsoever with this e-mail solicitation."
Individuals who receive such unauthorized e-mails are encouraged to file a complaint with the FBI at IC3.gov.
The statement also reminds viewers that show tickets are free and should never be paid for.
