Sweepstakes Scams Popping Up Across the Country

A scam that continues to resurface may be coming your way.
Con-artists claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House-- a popular sweepstakes-- are calling unsuspecting consumers and telling them they've won money.
But before the prize can be claimed, consumers are told they must first send in several hundred dollars for insurance.
A spokesman for the legitimate Publishers Clearing House says they're working with law enforcement to alert consumers.
Remember, a legitimate sweepstakes will never ask you to send money or pay a fee to claim a prize.
