Evansville police investigating strange new scam

Evansville police are investigating a strange new scam.

Police say an 83-year-old woman got a call from a man telling her she had won the Publishers Clearing House.

The woman told him she didn’t have an email, so he told her to go to Office Depot on Green River Road to print out the documents.

She also would have to pay $4,500 to receive her winnings. When the woman was inside the store, she got another call from the man.

He claimed that he had a description of her car, and asked the woman to come to the parking lot and meet with him.

Feeling uncomfortable, she called her son and he called 911. Police say they answered the phone the next time the scammer tried to call and he hung up.
