Sebree Police have received several calls from people saying someone is calling residents and telling them they've won $1 million cash prize from Publisher's Clearing House. 

Officials say the caller would deliver the prize, but first told the winner to go to Wal-Mart and use Pay-Pal to pay a $300 tax on the winning. 

Officials say the calls are coming from an 876 area code.
