Dave Sawyer (said he was from Houston TX) called and told him he had won $500,000 and a Mercedes. He has spoken with him several times from May-Aug, 2020 . He sent over $16,000 during this period of time. Another man, James Goodman, is also involved. Frank White 876-557-8194 and John Moore also called him. They had him pay by check through the USPS for some, prepaid cards, and some "Walmart to Walmart", CVS, etc. John Moore called last night and was to call this morning at 10am. Joe suggested several days ago that he wasn't going to send more money (but not direct) and John continues to call.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

This guy called on my husbands cell and said we had won $250 million a Mercedes, and $7 thousand per week for life. He was very good and spoke English. He did not ask for money up front but said someone would call us at 1:30 today to make arrangements for delivery. I called the number from our home phone and they did answer Publishers Clearing House but I hung up. They did also ask where my husband worked. He told him where he was retired from. No other personal information was given. We knew it was a scam. Then I called the here in Amarillo to report and they confirmed. Of course we have never entered these contests either.

David Snyder called last night & left the ph# for our caller to return because he identified himself as FedEx. They returned the call because they were expecting a package. He called on his house phone 903-338-2312. Today David told him he had a package to deliver and its from PCH for $3MM. He wanted to deliver it today, but they told him they wouldn't be home and didn't know when they would return.

She was going to send them check for $1500.The car was going to be driven from Springfield Mo to her house. They did not want her to tell anyone about her business or wanted anyone to be there when they dropped of the car. she was told to get $300 in gift cards and send that money to them. She gave them the credit cards numbers over the phone. She was going to send a check to these people in Ohio which they were not going to cash. She was to send the check by Federal express.

received call from PCH yesterday claiming I had won 18.5 million and stating they were sending payment to bank of america and needed me to go to walmart tomorrow and give them a code number and 1500 dollars in fees to receive the 18.5 million which alerted me that it may be a scam. I called the sheriffs dept and they referred me to

I could hear a rooster crowing in the background

The number they gave me to verify the deposit 16362515273

I gave them info requested to access my wife's computer. when we discovered it, they had installed a program they installed and that they may have access to her bank info. We notified the bank and they reassured her there was no way for the account to be compromised (Regions) unless she provided her bank acct # or SSN.

Caller was male with accent, didn't sound latin-american or european but unsure from where but was easily understandable.

I am 91 years old and my wife will be 87 tomorrow.

Caller claimed to be with Publishers Clearing House stating I had won Sweepstakes that I did enter. Luckily my son intervened convincing me of scam because they kept calling back phishing for information. They even have a phony bank account for you to Call and verify funds. Don't fall for it!

Type of a scam Phishing

I had one person call from Jamaica. Telling me I’ve won and to write down his information and his badge number. And for me to call another number as soon as possible.

Then the other person claming to be a Christian talk along time then wants me to go to Walmart to send a reg fee to be able to claim prizes.

When I told her I didn’t have money my husband got on phone told them to never call back.

Total money lost $500
Type of a scam Government Grant

A friend of mine gave me a messenger link about a$150,000.00 Grant through a business named PCH giving out Grants to the Poor and Elderly!

In order to get the money you had to Purchase $500.00 worth of Sephora Gift Cards and then text them the back of the cards so they could Verify the codes to prove that I bought them!

THEN ON Monday, the day that they were supposed to deliver the money, they text me saying that I have to pay taxes of $2500.00, , which I have NO way of getting! They constantly kept PRESSURING ME TO GET A LOAN, to come up with the money!!!

How soon that I could get the money, I kept telling them that I didn't want their money and to LEAVE MY ALONE, but they would not!!! They keep hounding me and they have cashed in the$500.00 gift cards THAT I BOUGHT!!!

Received a message on answering machine from PCH, called the number back. Person asked for Susie, I said she wasn't available. I asked for David Michael, and the man that answered said that was him. He said that I won $750.000, and that I needed to purchase $100 Amazon gift card. Afterwards I was to call him back with the number on the back, and then he would get my bank account to deposit the money. And he said not to tell anyone about winning because they will want to take my money. The money would be deposited within an hour of calling back with the gift card number.
