Police Warning About Phone Scam

scam_alertThe Publisher’s Clearing House scam is back and Saturday the scammers were working the Manchester area.
A man who calls himself Mike Robinson using the number 1-876-868-4362. He says he is with Publisher’s Clearing House and tells the potential victim that they have won something but you have to send them money to claim the prize. Robinson ask you to send the money through Western Union to a Sondra Murdock in Marion, Indiana.
A Manchester Police officer called the number and let the man go through his pitch and when the officer told him he was a scam artist, the man became irate.
Please do not fall for this scam. The caller has nothing to do with the real Publisher’s Clearing House. Call authorities if you receive this call.
