The scammers have been informing residents that they have won a substantial prize, and then proceed to ask for payment of fees and taxes to claim the prize. The Broome County District Attorney's Office reminds residents to be vigilant against these scams, noting that legitimate sweepstakes organizations do not require winners to pay fees upfront to receive their prizes.

Should you receive a call from someone claiming that you've won a prize or monetary reward and they request funds via wire transfer or insist on payment through a prepaid gift card for any supposed reason, including taxes, please refrain from complying. Such requests are indicative of fraudulent activity and should be treated as such. - Broome County District Attorney F. Paul Battisti
