Dear Action Line: I just want you to know there is a Publisher's Clearing House scam calling through our area, again. Someone claiming to be with PCH called saying I had won $2.8 million and to claim it I must go to a specific money transfer outlet and wire a large sum out of state. I hung up and I dialed the number on my Caller ID but kept getting the "fast busy" signal. Warn everyone! — J.G., Tulsa.

The Publishers Clearing House website warns that, "At PCH the winning is always free and you never have to pay to claim a prize award. Recognizing the difference between legitimate sweepstakes and other types of offers that may not be legitimate will help you protect yourself and your family," PCH states.

    I will need to see them at my door with flowers, a huge check and news media taking pictures. Then I might believe I was finally having some good luck.
