Another Scam Surfaces

Posted on 25 April 2012 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—Boone County Sheriff Ron Fehr has reported that a Deputy is working yet another scam that occurred to a Madrid area resident.  The investigation revealed that a resident was called by someone saying they were with Publishers Clearinghouse and they had won $500,000 and a BMW.  All they had to do was make payments on the taxes, processing and attorney fees and they could use the convenient MoneyPak payment method.  Fehr says the victim did begin making payments but stopped and notified the Sheriff’s Department.  The money that was paid apparently left the country.  Fehr says when contacted take time to contact law enforcement to protect yourself.
