Scam warning from Cross County

CROSS COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Cross County Sheriff's Department is warning residents of a scam.

According to police, a "hispanic-sounding" man is calling residents claiming they won money from Publisher's Clearing House, Fed Ex and other places and businesses.

The Sheriff's Office said the man then asks his victims to go to Wal-Mart, buy a specific green card and mail it to a Post Office Box; he is calling from several different numbers.

Sheriff J-R Smith says do not entertain the phone conversation because it is a scam.
