Publishers Clearing House Scam

A floral shop in Waupun entertained two Publishers Clearing House winners Tuesday afternoon. The problem is they weren’t really winners. The two older men were told to show up there to meet with officials from the sweepstakes company to collect a prize. Deputy Police Chief Jeremy Rasch says officers weren’t able to find the men and talk with them about what they had been told. Normally in that type of scam people are asked to pay some type of fee before they are able to collect their prize. The incident happened at Rens Floral on Gateway Drive. The two men told people at the shop that they did not give any information to Publishers Clearing House.
