Publisher’s Clearing House Scam

We have been made aware of another scam in Allen County.  A citizen reported she received a call from an individual claiming to be employed by the Publisher’s Clearing House.  The citizen stated she was advised she had been the recipient of a monetary prize and was required to pay an insurance payment via Money Gram or some other type of financial wiring service in order to receive her prize.  At no point in time should a valid entity awarding a prize require any type of insurance payment or any other payment to secure your award.
