North Pole Resident Wins Lottery

FAIRBANKS- A resident from North Pole says the Las Vegas Lottery awarded him a new BMW car and 5 million dollars. Unfortunately, to receive his prize he was asked to buy a Green Dot Card, which is basically a prepaid credit card, and give back the numbers. Suspecting it was a scam, he called the police, but he says the call was very convincing, and the callers tired more than 10 times to re-contact him. As a friendly reminder, the Fairbanks Police say there are many types of phone scams and before giving important information, hang up and do a little research first.
