Ponca City Scam


The Ponca City Police Department is alerting the public to another possible scam in our community. This scam involves someone calling and identifying themselves with Publishers Clearing House.  The caller will ask the victim to withdraw $1000 from their bank account, purchase a cashier’s check and mail it to a PO Box in Nevada.  They would then receive their money.

According to Ponca City Lieutenant Jason Filtz, you are not going to win a contest you did not enter and if the contest is legitimate, they will not ask you to pre-pay.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  If you have any questions about this scam contact the Ponca City Police.
