The Howard County Sheriff’s Office received information today that a resident in Dierks has been receiving phone calls from someone claiming to be with American Cash Awards.  The resident was told that she had won around 7 million dollars but they needed for her to go and purchase a green dot money pack card from Wal Mart or Walgreens for 99.00 dollars.  The caller would call her back in a couple of days and ask for the 14 digit number on the back of the card.  The caller claimed they needed this to process her winnings.  The resident in Dierks stated that the person calling her talked with a foreign accent.  Do not participate in this type of activity.  You will lose your money.  If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
