The Jones County Sheriff’s Department has received multiple reports of Jones County residents being targeted by a popular telephone scam.
The scammer calls and advises that the resident has won a new car from Publishers Clearinghouse and that the “winner” must only pay customs fees to claim the car. This is a total scam with the call apparently originating from Jamaica.
Please don’t fall for this scam. The only purpose the scammer has is to separate you from your hard earned money.
