City of Saginaw MI -
Saginaw Police - Publisher's Clearing House Scam

Within the last 24 hours Saginaw Police Officer Scott Bickel has received several calls regarding a Publisher Clearing House fraud going on in our area. Officer Bickel is manning the front desk at the Saginaw Police Department. An unknown male with a Jamaican accent is calling area residents claiming he is from Publisher Clearing House and residents are winners in their sweepstakes. He tells the residents that they must purchase a Green Dot Money card from Walmart stores and put a certain amount of money on the card. He tells the residents that he will make arrangements for their sweepstakes money to be delivered and he gets their money off of their card.

If you receive a call from anyone with this type of claim, hang up immediately and do not entertain the conversation. Publisher Clearing House is free and they donít ask for money in order for you to get your money.
