6/27 SCAM ALERT BULLETIN BOARD:

Reports are coming in about a Publisher’s Clearing House (PCH) scam so please be aware and share this important information.  The scammer will call you, claiming to be an employee of PCH and will direct you to a “claims agent.”  This person will inform you that you have won millions of dollars, but that you have to pay a tax or collector’s fee in order to receive your prize.  Please note: PCH will never ask you to pay a fee to collect a prize. No legitimate prize promoter ever charges a fee when you win. In addition, PCH never calls ahead to tell the winner they have won a prize. Please check the PCH fraud protection page for more information about this and other scams: https://info.pch.com/fraud-protection-2/

Contact local law enforcement or the AARP Fraud Watch Network at www.aarp.org/fraudwatchnetwork or 1-877-908-3360 to report a scam or for more information on scam and fraud prevention.
