(Columbia, KY.) – Cell phone users in the Adair County area are receiving phone calls from an unidentified source claiming to be Publisher's Clearing House. The caller is advising people that they are to receive a prize of 1.1 million dollars IF they go to the local Wal Mart and purchase two Green Dot cards.
