Chillicothe Scam

Police there say the resident got taken through a mailing from Canada with the publisher's clearinghouse logo on it saying she'd won a million dollars.

A check for more than $5,000 was enclosed with instructions to cash it then send a money gram of $4,500 back to the address to claim the prize.

The check was a fake and the money she sent is gone.

Chillicothe police say if you ever have to send money to collect a potential winning, it's a scam.
