Localized scam targeting Phillips residents

Phillips Police Chief Michael Hauschild has reported two new scams that are targeting the Phillips area, warning local residents to be cautious.

One scam is a person who claims to represent Publishers Clearing House advising the victim they won a certain amount of money, which is normally in the millions. The caller tells the victim to call another number and is connected to another person. The caller tells the victim they will be sending a check to cover the taxes on the money they won. All the victim would have to do is cash the check at their bank and send them $500.
