There has already been reports of a scam involving Publishers Clearing House calling stating that you have won an amount of money and that they would bring the money to your house, two individuals one male and one female showed up at one residence in a black car and stated that they needed $2000.00 of the winnings as a fee. The two individuals later was seen on surveillance at the victims bank trying to withdraw money out of the victims account.

            Chief Deputy Edmondson states “With the Holidays coming up the citizens of DeKalb County needs to be aware of scams. If they seem too good to be true they more than likely are. Do some checking into these calls or call our office at (256) 845-3801. We want everyone to be on alert of scams as they come in many forms especially around the Holidays.”
