Police are warning residents about a new phone scam in which someone claims to be a representative from Publishers Clearing House.

Police say the caller tells the victim that before they can claim their prize, they must pay $200 towards a “MoneyPak” re-load card. MoneyPak cards are sold in stores across the U.S. and are basically debit cards normally used to make same-day payments or add money to prepaid cards for PayPal accounts.

Police say if you get such a call, notify the police department. Read more.
