Scam Alert: Publisher’s Clearing House

From the Giles County Sheriff’s Office: We are receiving numerous reports of citizens receiving phone calls from a caller posing as “Publisher’s Clearinghouse”. The caller tells potential victims that they have won a large amount of money in a sweepstakes. The caller then tells the victim that they must send in $300 via Western Union to collect their prize.

We encourage citizens to NEVER send money to unknown sources. If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is!
