As reported in later editions of last night's Evening Times, a 55-year-old Glasgow man has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal following searches at properties in the city on Thursday.
And today, Detective Inspector Kenny Thomson issued a fresh warning after revealing that a number of people had already lost "significant" amounts of money.
Scammers have sent members of the public letters saying they have won jackpot prizes in the 'Commonwealth of Nations Online Lottery' and asking them to send their bank details. The letters featured the official logos of Glasgow 2014 and the National Lottery.
Victims are then sent another letter stating they must pay 1% of the prize for an administrative fee.
The scam first came to light in late September in areas of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
However it is believed that a number of people are involved and police said investigations were still at "a very early stage".
Mr Thomson, of Police Scotland's Economic Crime Unit, said: "The same letter has been received by victims across a large area.
"We are working with police officers from all over the UK. Our concern is that some people will not yet know they have been scammed.
"The scam is very simple. Unfortunately some people will take it at face value. Our main priority is to get the message out as widely as possible that no such lottery exists and to not give any personal details out."
