Mayfield PD warn public of phone scam

MAYFIELD, KY (KFVS) -

The Mayfield Police Department wants to warn the public of a possible phone scam involving callers claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House.

Those targeted by the scam say the caller will say you have won a prize. They then tell the caller to go to Walmart to register and send them a registration fee in order for you to receive the prize.

Police are warning the public to not give these callers any personal information and to not send them any money.

If you feel that your identity has been stolen, you are allowed one free credit report per year at annualcreditreport.com.
