PULASKI, Va. (WFXR) — The Pulaski Police Department took to Facebook Tuesday morning to warn residents after receiving several reports of scam calls.

The department says multiple residents reported receiving calls from “Publisher’s Clearing House” in which the caller asked for banking information and social security number confirmations in order to transfer the funds.

According to police, some residents even reported being asked for their driver’s license numbers because the caller said they also won a vehicle.
