• Police: Caller in scam offers ‘prizes’
     | January 25,2013

    WATERBURY — Vermont State Police are warning about a reported phone scam.

    State police say a man who spoke broken English called a Waterbury resident Thursday and said the resident had won a new car and $2 million, as well as other prizes.

    The man said the car would be dropped off later that day and asked for the resident’s banking account and checking account number and for $850 as a processing fee, according to police.

    State police said these types of phone scams usually target elderly people. Anyone who receives this kind of phone call or any similar one should not give any personal information — including name, date of birth and account numbers — to the caller and should report the activity to their local police or the state police.
