Detectives Desk: Scam Alert

A resident recently reported that she was contacted at her residence by a person who identified himself as David O'Donnel, a representative of Publishers Clearing House.  Mr. O'Donnel informed the resident that she had won over 10 million dollars and they had found a sponsor to pay 98% of the taxes.  This left the resident with paying 2% of the taxes or $500.  Mr. O'Donnel asked the resident to go Walmart and purchase a Green Dot Money Card in the amount of $500 to take care of the taxes.  The resident immediately identified this situation as a scam and did not comply to Mr. O'Donnel's request. 

Everyone should be aware of this scam along with the potential for others.  While the scams change over time there is one constant, the suspect will want money.  It's safe to go by the saying, "If it sounds to good to be true it probably is."
