MINOT, N.D. - Minot Police are warning residents of a phone scam.

They say a man reported his elderly mother received a call from someone claiming to be with the Publishers Clearing House informing her she won a car and money and wanted her to meet them at a store to claim her prize, but she needed to pay a "processing fee" first.

The woman informed her son and they quickly determined it was a scam.

Police say the call originated in Jamaica.
