Someone is telephoning people in the Wiregrass area and telling them they've won the Canadian Lottery.
But before the winner can claim their prize, they have to wire enough money to the caller to cover the taxes.
Police said the scheme cost one victim $25,000. Another lost $9,000.
Authorities on both sides of the Canadian border are working the case, but anyone who receives a suspicious call should contact Dothan police as soon as possible.
