Grey County Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is reminding residents to be aware of a scam known as the “prize pitch”. On Wednesday, January 28, a resident in the Municipality of Meaford received a phone call from an unknown caller stating she had won $500,000 in a Reader’s Digest contest for senior citizens. When she told the caller that she hadn’t entered any contest, she was told that her name was submitted to Reader’s Digest on behalf of Wal-Mart.
