Possible scam in the Sunnyside area

Posted: Updated:

SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- A Sunnyside resident says there's a telephone scam going around the area.

A woman says she received two phone calls on August 9th, stating she won money. The victim says the man on the other line said she won through a contest sponsored by a company called Las Vegas International. The caller said all she needed to do was wire money to a provided address and she would be sent her prize in return.

Police say, if you receive a call of this nature do not give out your personal information or send them any money. Instead call the Sunnyside Police Department at 509.836.6200.
