There have been several reports over the past weekend that PHONE SCAMS have started. The caller says you’ve been selected to win prizes ($1 million, a new car, a vacation cruise etc.) if you simply buy a local gift card for $5-10 and call them back with the gift card number. These calls are coming in on landlines and cell phones throughout the area.
THIS IS A SCAM. D0 not engage in conversation, JUST HANG UP! Although the calls are coming in to all numbers, seniors are most vulnerable to these calls. Alert the seniors in your life!
