Local police reiterate Clearing House scam warning

February 15th, 2013 2:07 pm by staff report

Two days after the Hawkins County Sheriff's Office warned the public of a "Publisher’s Clearing House" sweepstakes scam, the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says they've also been receiving such reports.

Individuals are reportedly receiving calls, mail and e-mails claiming they've won a prize — if only you'll send money so that your winnings can be released.

The SCSO says a legitimate sweepstakes will never ask that you send such fees or deposits to receive a prize, and such communications should be ignored.
