Scam Calls Reported to Starke County Sheriff’s Department

The Starke County Sheriff’s Department has received several complaints about a scam.

In this scam, the caller tells you that you’ve won $2.5 million in the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes. The caller then tells you to go to a local store and buy a Money Pack Green Scratch card and put $225 on it and send it to them in order to collect your prize.

The caller is from Jamaica and you are urged not to accept these phone calls or call back. Remember, if you have to pay to get money, then it’s a scam. If you encounter a similar phone call, call the Sheriff’s Department.
