A scam warning on Friday from Elkhart County Police.

They say a victim received a call, saying that he had won money and a car from Publisher's Clearing House.

He was given a phone number to call to arrange delivery for the car, but then he was told he would have to pay the taxes on the car before they would drop it off.

That was when the victim realized it was a scam, and he didn't give them any money.

In this instance, the call came from an 876 area code.

If you receive a call like this one, you should contact police.
