The Better Business Bureau has a warning about an international phone scam. El Pasoans have been targeted and you could be next.

The BBB said the calls have a 876 area code, but the calls may also come from domestic phone numbers.

They said the scammers are known to falsely inform residents that they won millions of dollars, a new Mercedes Benz and at times, a new TV.

They claim to be affiliated with Publishers Clearinghouse, UPS or a government agency and they often speak with foreign accents.

The BBB reminds everyone to never give out personal information over the phone.
