Possible scam alert

Luckily the viewer who called to alert us about this knows not to fall for it.

The viewer said she received a call around 7 a.m. from someone named “Mr. Benjamin" at Publisher’s Clearing House and that she won a car and some money.

They told her, she says, that she needed to get a money order for $285 and they would call her back at 9 a.m. Her caller ID picked up the number: 303-654-8791.

They gave her another number to call: 1-876-568-1244. Our viewer won't be sending money.

I called both numbers and didn't get anywhere.

My advice: DO NOT send money to claim money. That isn't generally how the lottery or PCH works.

I am happy to answer questions, just call me.
