Cadiz Police Department Warns of Scam in Area

Scam Alert blue 300CADIZ, Ky. (3/6/13) – A Cadiz resident contacted the Cadiz Police Department saying she had received a phone call from someone stating she had won $500,000.
 
In order the claim the money, she had to send $1,900 to an address in the Philippines. She was given another number and told it was the Internal Revenue Service and for her to follow up, and then send the money through Western Union.
 
Cadiz Police contacted the number to the "IRS" and an obviously foreign male answered then hung up when he was asked questions.

This is another common phone scam that circulates in the United States each day. If someone asks you to send money in to claim a bigger prize, it's not a legitimate claim. Also, foreign lotteries and sweepstakes are illegal in the United States.
