Police warn of lottery phone scam

DIXON – Residents in and around Dixon are advised to watch for a phone scam in which callers claim that the resident has won the Jamaican lottery.

Dixon police issued a press release about the scam. The scammers claim to represent the Jamaican government and that the person they called won the lottery. To claim the prize money, the person called must wire a fee to the lottery, from a few hundred dollars to $4,000.

Anyone who receives a phone call with an 876 area code is advised that the number originates in Jamaica, and is likely a scam call. Police request that any area residents who receive a call that starts with 876 not answer the call. Any such calls can be reported to the Dixon police at 815-288-4411 or Crimestoppers at 888-228-4488.
