The Better Business Bureau reports a new scam this time over the phone.

We all want to win the big prize, but a call from Publishers Clearing House will only make you lose money.  That call is a scam.  According to the BBB, Publishers Clearing House doesn't call their winners and they will never ask for money up front to pay for things like taxes or insurance.

Be aware, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is too good to be true.

Contact the BBB for more information on this or other consumer issues at (256) 850-0719.
