PINCONNING (WJRT) (03/01/2018) - If you get a call from Publisher's Clearing House saying "you've won!" -- you might want to tread lightly.

Police in Pinconning are investigating a number of phone scam cases - after victim's report receiving calls from people claiming to offer news of a big prize.

But - as you might know, they'd never ask for money up front to claim the prize and that's what's happening.

Don't be pressured to give in — hang up and contact customer service to verify.

Elderly people are often a vulnerable target.
