MIDLAND -- City of Midland is warning people about phone scams targeting Midland residents.
The victims of these scams get a call from a person who claims to be with Publishers Clearing House, or Million Dollar Mania.
They tell the victims that they have won money, and ask that they send a deposit through Money Grams or Green Dot Cards.
Officers say if you are told you have won money, but can't receive it without a deposit that it's a scam and ask that you report the call to police.
