The Upshur County Sheriff's Department said a prize scam has been targeting residents who get notified that they won money and a new car.

In order to claim they're prize, they have to load money on a Green Dot money card, and then the rest will be loaded on it.

The sheriff's department said don't listen to them, and they have turned everything over to the West Virginia Attorney General's Office for further investigation.
