Yakima Police Warning of Scammers Claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA - The Yakima Police Department wants to warn people of a scam going around.

     

They say they have received several reports from people saying they received a call from someone claiming to be from the Publishers Clearing house. 


Police say scammers have been calling people and telling them that in order to receive their prize they must first pay a fee. 


Police say one local victim was even asked to give her address so the prize can be personally brought to her. 


Officers advise if you receive such call hang up. They say this is not a call from a legitimate Publishers Clearing House representative. 


You will never have to pay a fee or give out valuable information to claim a prize.
