Another Publishers Clearing House scam hits Joplin

(From the Joplin Police Department)

As the holiday season is upon us, this is a good time to remind everyone to be mindful and watchful for scams that could come your way.

Today we had a citizen advise us of a letter they received in the mail indicating that they had won the Publisher's Clearing House. Also included with the letter was a partial check for the winnings.

Thankfully they did some checking and were able to determine that the check was fraudulent. Another indicator that this was a scam was that the letter had poor grammar and poor punctuation. Remember that if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
