There is a scam targeting Anderson County residents regarding the Publishers Clearing House (PCH). Several residents have been targeted by people portraying themselves as an employee of Publishers Clearing House. Victims are contacted by phone and told they have received a prize of $25,000 and a scooter. To claim your prize you must got to Wal-Mart and purchase a pre-paid credit card with $125.00 to claim the prize. The victim is then contacted again for the credit card number.

Publishers Clearing House (PCH) does not make or authorize outgoing calls to consumers to sell merchandise, magazines, or to solicit contest entries. PCH major winners are notified by mail or in person and they never phone ahead to disclose that someone has won a major prize. If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House and are asked to send money, pay a fee or pre-pay taxes to enter, collect or claim a sweepstakes prize - STOP - you have not heard from the “real” Publishers Clearing House.
