They called saying i won a 2023 Mercedes and 2 billion dollars from publishers clearing house and needs a date for delivery. I simply asked them why would publishers clearing house be handing 2 billion dollars to the bbb. Then asked them if they even know my name. They then hung up and attempted to call again. I didn't answer.

He called and said that I won $960,000 and then that I had to get a government claimers card and put $305.00 to get rewards

- Holland, OH, USA

Stated with undetermined accent that I had won the grand prize and Mercedes and wanted to know if I was home to collect the prize. I said wow and promptly hung up. This phone number is local Perrysburg, Ohio. 567 331 7293.

Call received from “PCH” prize patrol person named Mark, claiming I won a random drawing from Spin the Wheel. He stated that he can see that I have been a PCH participant in the past off and on for about 10 years, which was correct. Supposedly, I “won” 3.5mil, BUT he/they required I pay $8500 upfront-Really Mark!! He had another phone # for me to call to confirm the deposit of funds being held at BoA. 516-871-2299. Not sure if these numbers work anymore.

Thank you

I received a voicemail stating I had won the Publisher Clearing House Sweepstakes. I knew this was a scam and did not talk to them.

Said that I won 9.500 thousand dollars and a new 2022 Mercedes. Persons name was Marcus Garvey.

The first attachment I received from Micheal Taylor. He said I won $20 million in June of 2020 but because of Covid I never received it. If you call his number he has the PCH jingle. He said he was going to pay my rent and a loan I had. The checks bounced. The second attachment was his boss David Martin 313-395-6056 he called because Micheal wrote the bounced checks and he was investigating it. The got me for $500. 3 bounced checks $50. each and a late payment of $100 for my apartment. 2 bounced checks at one main financial and tried to get a loan in my name. I’m not sure how they knew about one main financial the said they paid it when they called me first.My name is Deborah Jewell

I get several calls during the weeks informing me that I have won the Publishers Clearing House sweepstakes. Including the one today ( 6/15/22) of $130,000. And to call back to claim my winnings. And then they ask for a shipping & handling fee to process it.

Said i won 2nd prize from pch and wanted me to get money card with 499.25 on it and give them the registration numbers to be able to recieve the prize of 9 million dollars and a car

Received a call frrom a # that said no Caller ID. He said his name was David Brooks and he was with Publishers Clearing House. I had won $7,000 a week for life and a 2022 Chevrolet Tahoe. I could not talk with him at the time because I was not home and had no pen and paper to write with. He offered to call me back, but instead I asked if I could call him instead. He gave me his name and telephone # and said it was a government issued phone. Well we talked on Sunday afternoon (I was at the beach) and he gave me some specifics and said that he would call me back on Monday to set up arrangements for my delivery. He calls me back and tells me I need to go to Walgreens, CVS, etc. to get a scratch off money card of some sort. So I keep him on the phone as I drive to Walgreens and when I get there I proceed to tell him I am there and he stated that I needed to go inside and put $325 on this card so they can register the vehicle. I told him I did not have $325 to put on the card(I wasn't feeling to hopeful at the time). He proceeded to say that maybe I could borrow the money from a friend and so forth. I told him that I was going to visit the local sheriffs office and talk with them about this (but instead I went into Walgreens and asked them about this card) He was still on the line with his manager (he said) and I loudly asked the girl standing behind the counter about this so called card and she said that this was a scam! I knew, but I wanted to see how far he was going with this. Just wanted to make other people aware that these type of calls are going around. So much for my feelings and winnings!!!

I got a phone call saying I won publishers clearing house sweepstakes prize of $2,500.000 and a new ford 4x4 pickup truck. Then I was asked to go get a pre paid card at Walmart for $587 dollars for prize insurance a secure spend card? And to insure this amount for $3500? I told him I was quadriplegic and, had now way to get to any Walmart or pretty much any store and, I did not understand why if I won this prize I needed to give money in order to get money that I had supposedly won?

Claims to be PCH wants vanilla gift card
Wants me to spend 750 for delivery charge


James Wilson ,Scammer called from ***-***-****  for PCH on a Phishing Scam. He gave me Verification Code *******pch.

He did not know my address or information he should have known.

He told me to go to Walgreens then call him. When I started asking him questions & challenging him he hung up & did not call back

There was a phone message for my wife that she needed to call agent Jose Garcia to claim the winnings from the PCH sweepstakes. He claimed he was a federal agent working with them to ensure safety of the winners. We called the number and they said my wife had won 17 million but that we needed to pay the 1% processing fee to retain the money. The more we explained we did not have that kind of money the lower the fee became. We agreed to pay $9000 and followed the instructions he gave us. As soon as we sent the money they asked for more, and that is when it became very clear to me it was not legit. We are desperately working with our bank to try and get back the money we wired.

Received a call from Shirley West at Publishers Clearing House telling me I've won 23million dollars and all I had to do was go buy a vanilla Visa card for $299.00 and then call him back with the numbers on the back of the gift card. He called at 9:30pm and then again at 6:30am. He did want an address and it was given. So the scammer has a name and address.

Mr. James Kingston calls from PCH and tells me I won 1 million plus 5,000 a week for life. He provided me with numbers to give to the prize patrol and said I have to get an Apple gift card of 500.00 (FDIC) to insure the million gets to my bank. I did not provide any information to this man.
