Hamilton Police warn about scam

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - Hamilton Police are warning residents about a possible scam about saving money at Walmart and Target.

Police said residents are receiving postcards in the mail advising them that they are eligible to receive $100 in gift savings at Walmart or Target.

There is a phone number on the card. When the number is called, the person on the other end says that there is a $1 processing fee and then asks for a credit card number (MasterCard or Visa).

Police remind residents not give their credit card and banking information over the phone.
