Several people are reporting a scam where thieves are trying to get their money through prepaid cards.

The callers are telling people that they are with Publisher's Clearing House and that they have won a prize for being a frequent customer at Walgreen's or Walmart. The prize varies from a million dollars to a Mercedes Bens.

The thieves immediately ask for an address so they can come deliver the prize. Then they ask the person to fill up a prepaid card for three hundred dollars and give them the card information as that will be their "contestant I.D."
