VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Valdosta Police Department has a warning for residents of a possible phone scam.

A resident reported a person contacted her from an "800" number.

She says the male caller told her that she was selected as a winner for the Publishers Clearing House.

The caller told her that she had won over a million dollars.

The caller then proceeded to tell her to purchase a gift card and that a camera crew would be at her house. 

The resident then called the company and verified that this was a scam.

VPD asks residents to stay vigilant on these kinds of scams.
