|Sheriff Norman Dalton Warns Marshall County Residents Of A Phone Scam|
Sheriff Norman Dalton would like the citizens of Marshall County to beware of a scam taking place in the Marshall County area. The caller will advise you that they are from the Publishers Clearing House and that you have won a Mercedes or X amount of money and the money has been sent to the Bank of America and the Tennessee Highway Patrol will be delivering the vehicle. The caller will then advises you that you need to go to Walmart and purchase a Green Dot Money Pak in the amount of $XXX.00 to cover the taxes on the winnings. The caller will give you a check number and document number to pick up your check at the Bank of America. Once you purchase the Green Dot Money Pak they will ask you to read to them the number on the Money Pak. Next, they will tell you there has been a mistake and you need to go purchase a Gold Dot Money Pak in the same amount. This is definitely a scam. These calls are being made from a number from Jamaica. Once you read the caller the number off of the Money Paks, the amount on the Money Pak is in their hands. Do not fall for this; beware!
