Posted: Updated:

SMYRNA, Tenn. - Smyrna police want to warn residents about two new scams targeting senior citizens.

The first comes in the form of a letter that looks like it comes from Publisher's Clearing House. The letter states the recipient has won $1.5 million.   

Police also said to be on alert for a scam involving a phone call selling "green dot" money cards in order to get a cash prize.  

Smyrna Police Chief Kevin Arnold said one man lost $10,000 in of these scams. 

His advice: If it seems too good to be true, it probably is, so be cautious.  

Anyone who thinks they may have been targeted by scammers should call Smyrna Police at 615-459-6644.
