The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has received several calls regarding scams this week.
The caller will state something such as, “You have won $2 Million from Publisher’s Clearing House and a 2017 Mercedes. In order to claim your prize you need to send “x” amount of money."
Another is that Oprah Winfrey is coming to your residence to present money to you but wants a portion in return for a donation to a charity.
Also, there are still the occasional IRS scam phone calls as well. Remember, the IRS will never call you for payment of money owed.
Please remember if you have truly won something there should never be a fee or need to provide money in order to claim your prize.
