Scam Doesn't Fool Putnam County Woman
Authorities say a Putnam County woman did the right thing when she was called by someone claiming to be from Publishers Clearinghouse. The caller said he would give the woman a million dollar check -- if she would write him a check for a thousand dollars. She said no thanks. Authorities say it was, indeed, a scam because you don't have to pay money to win a legitimate prize.
