FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Franklin County, Alabama Sheriff's Office is warning of a pre-paid credit card scam.

They said the callers seem to be targeting senior citizens, but may be making random calls as well.

The caller says you've won some type of prize. They then tell you you'll receive the money on a green dot pre-paid credit card. But you have to activate that card at a cost of $450, then call them back with the card number and pin number.
