Police warn of ‘unclaimed reward’ scam

Patton Township police are warning of scam in which area residents have received postcards announcing “unclaimed rewards” from large retailers such as Wal-Mart and Target.

The cards direct recipients to call a 1-855 phone number to claim $100 in rewards. The caller is then asked to pay $1 to receive the reward and is asked for credit card information.

Patton Township police remind residents to be cautious about providing such information and to call police with questions or concerns.
