Publishers Clearing House Scam

Publishers Clearing House Scam

A Knox County Resident has reported that they received a letter from the Publishers Clearing House stating they had won a substantial amount of money.  Enclosed with this letter was a check that was stated it was partial winnings.  The check was not made out by Publishers Clearing House, but by a cutting tool company called Contour360.  Other things to look for in scam letters include spelling and grammatical errors, foreign phone numbers, and also, "too good to be true" statements.  Attached are images of the letter, envelope and check.  Please pass this information along to your family and friends.  The elderly are at the highest risk of falling for these types of scams.  If you receive something of this nature, dispose of it by shredding or burning so that it will not be obtained by someone else.
