- The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery never requires the payment of any money in order to claim a prize
- The Arkansas Scholarship Lottery typically does not call people to tell them that they've won, except in contests that the person has intentionally entered.
- Never provide any personal or financial information to someone over the phone unless you initiate the call or are certain the caller is legitimate, especially Social Security numbers, bank account numbers, and credit card numbers.
- If you receive a call from someone claiming to be from the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery, Powerball or Mega Millions, be on your guard. You can always call the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery Security Hotline at 1-888-606-6292 for more information or to check the legitimacy of such claims.
