The Hancock Police have received a report of a new phone scam. The scammer calls and acts as a representative of Publisher's Clearing House, claiming that a delivery team will arrive at the recipient's house at a given time with a check for the total amount of prize money won. The caller also requests that the winner purchase a Green Dot Money Card and pre-load it with a determined amount for processing. The caller calls back shortly before 'delivery time' and asks for the 'delivery number' on the back of the Green Dot card, which gives them access to the funds charged to the card.

Medical Alert Systems Phone Scam
A telephone scam involving a promise of a free medical alert system as well as $3,000 for groceries has been reported by a town resident. The call is a recording and states that you were referred by your doctor or primary care physician. It also requests that you dial 1 to confirm a shipping address or dial 5 to notify your medical provider that you have opted out. The best course of action is to simply hang up and disregard the message. This scam is designed to appear legitimate in order for the scammers to access bank account information. If you receive these phone calls, please notify the Police Department at 525.4102.
