WEST OLIVE, MiCH. (WZZM) -- WZZM 13 is On Your Side to warn you about a scam that's re-emerging in Ottawa County.

Deputies say they're receiving more reports of a prize-winning scheme. The victims receive a telephone call saying they have won a large prize. The suspects tell the victim they're in the area and they will deliver the prize, but first the victim must pay a processing fee. The victim gives a credit card number over the phone and waits, but the prize never shows up.

Deputies say you should never give personal and credit card information over the phone.
