Phone scam reported

A Troy resident has reported a phone scam to The Messenger in hopes that others will not fall for it.
The reader said the caller told her she had won $1 million and a new car in a contest and that all she needed to do was send $350 in order to receive the prizes.
She said the caller had her name and address and she spoke with him long enough to find out what he wanted. She then told him she knew it was a scam and hung up.
“I’m afraid someone might fall for it and I don’t want that to happen,” she said.
