SCAM ALERT: Caller says you've won money, asks for $500

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) We have a Local 8 News SCAM ALERT to warn you about.

A viewer contacted us to say a man with a heavy accent called saying she'd won $2.5 Million, a Mercedes and $5,000/month.

The man told her the prize was from CBS and Publisher's Clearing House and she needed to bring $500 of her own money to a local Walgreens to get it.

We checked out the number - 876-895-5699. It's based in Jamaica.
If they call you - call police.
