Quotes

"When they called me the same day as the drawing, I thought I had won" she says
"It kind of takes on a new note for the policepolice department and me in particular" Schoolcraft said
The PPD warns residents "As always, use caution and NEVER give out bank account information, social security numbers, dates of birth, or any other information that could compromise your accounts or your identity. Companies such as Publisher's Clearing House will not contact you by phone and request personal information, and certainly not ask for account numbers for bank accounts. A good rule of thumb to follow is that if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is."
