Publishers Clearing House scam targets the elderly

The Quincy Police Department is warning residents to use caution thanks to another phone scam targeting the elderly.

The callers claim they are with Publishers Clearing House and tell potential victims that theyâ??re won a large sum of money.

They tell the victims to go to a pharmacy and obtain money cards and call them back with the numbers of the money cards or give an address to send the money claiming itâ??s a handling fee before their prize can be sent.

Anyone with information about this scam or anyone who is targeted is asked to contact Det. Adam Gibson at 217-223-7904 ext. 104.
