ATLANTA (CBS46) -

A Vietnam War veteran couldn't believe his good news.

He got a call saying he had won a multi-million dollar jackpot and a new car. All he had to do to collect was to send a money order to pay for the taxes on the prize.

He went to his post office to send the blank money order, but clerks who knew him sniffed a scam. They stopped the vet before he could lose any money. But, as Better Call Harry learned, the crooks weren't finished targeting the vet.
