La Jose man loses $17,800, two iPhones to scam

Chest Township, PA – Another scam from someone claiming to be from the Publisher’s Clearing House has taken more than $20,000 worth of money and cell phones from a Clearfield County man.

The 65-year-old man from La Jose said he had sent two Apple iPhone 12s, each worth about $1,100, and $17,800 in cash to the scam artist between Nov. 30 and Dec. 13.

The investigation continues.

Police continue to warn everyone that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. If someone reaches out to you saying that you won a contest that you don’t remember entering or if someone tells you that you have to pay a sum of money to receive a larger amount of money in return, that is a sure sign of a scam.
