LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Have you received a phone call telling you that you've won the Jamaican lottery and all you have to do is pay the fees to release your funds or prize? 

The Arkansas Attorney General's office is warning consumers that this is a scam and not to fall for it.

"Within in the last two weeks we've been getting reports from Arkansas consumers and local law enforcement agencies that folks are getting call from a 876 area code number and they are being told they have won a car and if they will wire money, processing fees for their winnings, someone is in the area and will deliver a car to them," says Assistant Attorney General Sarah Tacker.

Tacker says if it seems to good to be true, it probably is.

Mother seeks justice for son allegedly slain by officer


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The mother of 15-year-old Bobby Moore III, a teen shot and killed by a Little Rock police officer, says if convicted,  the manslaughter charge for Officer Josh Hastings would be a 'slap on the wrist.'

Moore's mother, Sylvia Perkins, told Today's THV in a phone call Monday the arrest is a step in the right direction, but she feels a stronger charge is warranted.

Hastings turned himself in Friday for last month's shooting and Monday pleaded not guilty to manslaughter.

The officer shot the 15-year-old in August because he says Moore was trying to break into cars  at a Little Rock apartment complex, then tried to get away, driving right at him.

Prosecutors, however, say Hastings' story does not add up.
