Putnam County residents are the target of a new phone scam. The Putnam County Sentinel reports people have been getting calls from scammers claiming they are with Publishers Clearing House. The person on the phone will say you’ve won millions of dollars and a new car. They then ask you to buy a green dot card and call them back with the card’s number. The caller will tell you that once you do that, someone will come by your home with your winnings.
Of course it’s a complete scam. Once you give the person the green dot card number, they can access the money on the card.
The calls appear to be coming from Jamaica. They have an area code of 876.
