A Michigan City area woman was taken to the cleaners in a telephone scam.

According to the sheriff's office.....the 79 year old woman was told she

won the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes.

But...to collect...she had to pay taxes on the winnings.

So....she did as instructed and sent three thousand dollars in cash to

an address in Texas.

She told police the caller spoke with a foreign accent.
