I am the Sheriff of Dodge County Wisconsin. I received a report of an individual who was trying to scam an elderly woman with the publisher’s clearing house scam saying she needed to pay taxes before she could get her reward. I called the number and spoke to the scammer "John Carpenter" for about 10 minutes. During that time he admitted that he takes from the rich and gives to the poor. He has since called my office phone number back twice. The phone number is still active which is surprising as after my phone call the number was turned off briefly. I do not have the resources to investigate this scam further, but am hopeful that you may be able to take action.

My Dad received a call from a man claiming to be from "Publisher’s Clearing House." He said "You’ve seen our ads on TV right?" He said that my Dad had won "Second Prize of $2.5 million" and to grab a piece of paper to write some things down. My dad (knowing that it was a scam) asked how much this was going to cost him. The scammer said "$2500." My Dad told the man to "stick it where the sun don’t shine" and the caller hung up.
