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.
