The Oklmulgee County Sheriff’s Office received several reports of residents getting phone calls from a man with an accent telling them he was from Publisher’s Clearing House and they had won a new car and cash.

Deputies say the man then tells people they have to pay $100 fee to process their winning and receive their prize. The sheriff’s office believes this is a phone scam.

Deputies called the man and questioned him and say he became belligerent and shouted obscenities at them before he hung up the phone.

Sheriff Eddy Rice is cautioning residents not to be taken in by such scams. Anyone that has been a victim can call the sheriff’s office at 918-756-4311.
