In recent weeks the Millard County Sheriff’s Office has received several complaints from citizens stating they have been contacted by someone posing to be from Publishers Clearing House.  The callers posing to be from Publishers Clearing House been advising Millard County residents that they have won a large sum of money.  They then ask the residents to wire them a percentage of the winnings through Western Union.  They assure the residents that they will then bring them their winnings in a Publishers Clearing House van.  .

 

Many of our residents are receiving this type of call and Sheriff Dekker reminds you to NEVER give out personal information over the phone to anyone and use extra caution if wiring money to individuals you don’t know.   If you have questions please call us at 435-743-5302 or 435-864-2755.

 

Safe Tip

Hang up immediately on obscene callers or strangers who ask questions regarding private matters. Many such callers are merely seeking an emotional response and will discontinue their harassment if you avoid a reaction of fear or anger. Chronic harassing phone calls should be reported to the Sheriff's Office.
