Scam attempt reported in Falls City
01/11/2018

(KLZA)--A Falls City resident alerted the Falls City Police Department of a recent scam attempt.

The local resident received a letter, alleged to have been from the Publishers Clearing House.  

The letter notified the individual they were a winner on money,  but were to no tell anyone, and provide the company with bank account information so they could deposit the winnings.

Assistant Police Chief Jamie Baker said there were several red flags tipping off the scam attempt.

The letter was in a regular sized envelope,  with a Florida return address. However, the letter was postmarked in Canada and the phone number to call with questions was in New York.

Baker warns that anytime you receive notice you are a winner, and someone asks for bank account information, or wants  you to pay them a fee, it is a scam.
