Posted March 24th, 2014 @ 9:53am by Jason Aldrich

Lima, OH (WIMA) -- The local Better Business Bureau is reporting that people are receiving phone calls from representatives claiming to be from Publisher's Clearinghouse.

 

The callers are instructing you to buy a green dot and call them back- and once that purchase is complete- someone will deliver the prize money and a new car.

 

Of course- the delivery never happens.

 

The calls are coming from area code 876- which has been traced to Jamaica.

 

If you have received one of these calls- call the BBB at 419-223-7010.
