The Chatsworth Police Department is warning residents about a scam call from area code 876.

Police say the scammers are calling residents, often times the elderly, and telling them they have won money and/or prizes. The scammer tells the victim they only have to pay the taxes before receiving their winnings.

Police advise the only way to get these calls to stop is by changing your phone number.

Police are urging residents to not share any of their personal information if they receive a call from area code 876 and call them immediately at (706) 695-9666.
