Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fargo police are warning you about a telephone scam.
Callers say they're from the "Publisher's Clearing House," and they tell you you've won $800,000.
Winners are supposed to provide a prepaid credit card in the amount of $100 to $150 in order to have the prize delivered.
Some scams include an additional prize of a new car or other enticements.
Police say legitimate lotteries and sweepstakes do not require winners to pay for their winnings.
