KINGMAN – The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is warning local residents of two scams.
Victims have reported getting calls from someone claiming to represent Publisher’s Clearing House saying the person called has won $250,000. The caller asks for $500 to claim the prize.
The Sheriff’s Office believes this is another scam attempt and urges residents not to give out personal information over the phone. If you suspect fraud, contact your local law enforcement agency.
The second scam involves a service in which one reporting party stated he got a call from someone claiming to be with the water company. The caller said he would be coming by to do an inspection.
The reporting party became suspicious, contacted the water company and learned nobody from the company was doing home inspections. Do not give out personal information to callers and report suspicious calls to your local law enforcement agency or when you suspect a trespasser on your property.
