NORTH COLLEGE HILL, OH (FOX19) - North College Hill Police are warning residents about a new scam involving postcards that is likely making its way around the Tri-State area.
"This is a new one that's popped up in the area," Officer Austin Kilgore with the North College Hill Police Department said. "Basically, they send you a postcard in the mail, and it's not directly addressed to you."
The postcard states that you have an "unclaimed reward" - $100 worth of savings that can supposedly be used at well-known retailers like Walmart or Target.
To get your money, the postcard claims that all you have to do is call the phone number listed on the card.
However, police said that if you pick up the phone and dial, the person on the other line will tell you that they need your personal information, such as your name, your date of birth and even your social security number, in order for you to get your hands on the prize. The prize, police said, never shows up.
