Another scam is making its way across East Alabama. People are receiving calls claiming to be from the Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes and a variety of other organizations known for giving away money and prizes. No matter how the conversation starts, at some point, the caller will ask you to send them money by credit, debit, gift cards, money order, check or any way possible. You should never pay anything up front in a legitimate contest. In some cases callers ask for sensitive information like bank account or social security numbers. Never give out personal or private information over the phone. If you receive a phone call like this, contact your local law enforcement.
