Posted: Updated:
Lawton police are warning resident about an ongoing scam.

Residents receive a call from someone claiming to be from the Publisher’s Clearing House tell you that you have won $5-million.  Then you are told that a representative will be at your house on a specific date and time.  They tell you that you have to give that representative a $300 check as a processing fee.

Police said Publisher’s Clearing House doesn’t require the winner to pay a processing fee for the prizes they award.  Lawton Police said you should advise the call that you know what they are doing is a scam that that you are not interested in participating.
