PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - The Paragould Police Department is alerting the community after an apparent scam has re-surfaced.

Several people have called dispatch recently, complaining of someone pretending to represent Publishers Clearing House.

The impersonator reportedly told people that they won and need to wire money or get a prepaid card to claim the prize.

Police say the key to remember is that if someone calls asking for money, then it is a scam.
