Sheriff Warns of Phone Scam
LONG PRAIRIE – There’s another phone scam you need to be aware of.
The Todd County Sheriff’s Department says a man known as Gerald White is running a Jamaican Trip scam. He appears to have a Jamacian-style accent. He calls homes and tells residents to go to their local Walmart store and put money on a credit card. The man then calls them back and tells them they won a contest for the Publishers Clearing House $1 million dollar sweepstakes, or they have the option to take a free round trip to Jamaica.
The Sheriff’s Office advises you not to fall for this scam. If they contact you call the Sheriff’s Office at (320) 732-2157.
