Scam Alert: Familiar Themes Repeated

More Scams hit the area.

An elderly Worcester woman is out  close to 30-thousand-dollars after falling victim to a scam.  

The woman  was contacted by phone by a person who told her that she was a winner of  the Publisher's Clearing House sweepstakes.  

However, the scammer told  the 85-year-old woman that she had to pay some fees and taxes in order  to collect over a million dollars in winnings.  

The woman's daughter  learned of the payments and was able to stop payment on a check for  another 20-thousand-dollars and reported the scam to police.
