ALBANY, GA (WALB) - An Albany man has a scam alert about an e-mail con he worries people may fall for during tough times.

Johnny Arnold got the e-mail Monday afternoon, saying he was due $150,000.

It says it's from the Resolution Panel on Foreign Payments for Lotto, Contract Payments, and Inheritance Claims.

The letter gives an e-mail address to respond to.

Arnold says he rarely gets e-mail scams, so he knows this one could be wide spread.

Arnold said "No, there is no free money out there. Somebody's got to pay for it. And they are not going to be giving it away."

Arnold did not respond to the e-mail, and he warns others not to it they receive it.

He planned to forward the e-mail to the District Attorney's office.
