Received call saying they were from Publisher's Clearing House. I'm 83. It said Scam on my phone. They were very aggressive. I told them I would call the BBB. They've called 3 times.

- Fulton, MO, USA

I received a call from a man that claimed to be from Publishers Clearing House, he stated that I had won 2.5 million dollars, but due to Covid, they could not come to my home. I was instructed to send him $75.00 for processing fees, and then he personally deliver the check to my bank within 3 days. I declined and he kept asking if I was sure I wanted to pass on winning 2.5 million dollars.

Received a call from a gentleman saying he was with Publisher's Clearing House and I had won; but, I needed to go get some gift cards to give to him. I told him I'd call him back.

I got a few calls from a man named David Sayers who told me he was with PCH and I had won 2nd place. He did have an accent too. So he told me I had won $5.4 Million, a Mercedes and $5,000 per week for 5 years. He said I needed to mail him a cashiers check for $299 to to get the process started to have my money and car delivered to my door step. He told me to send it Priority Mail to a woman named Ravenna Childers, 311 Beard Road, Hartsell, AL 35640. I did that. Then they called back earlier this week and said they needed me to pay the taxes of $5,000. They wanted me to send them a check by FedEx overnight to the same address. I did that but then started thinking better and went to my bank and closed my account. Then went to FedEx and asked to stop the envelope and they did and are mailing it back to me. I actually only lost about $36.36 to have mailed and stopped the checks. They called back and were mad about the account being closed and couldn't cash the $299 personal check they sent me.

Took call from my cell phone. They claimed I had won $3.5 Million + a Mercedes + $2,500 on the 21st of every month until I died.

Collect $2,500 as the 1% of taxes due to FDIC. Dave Sawyers was the man I spoke to and he spoke English.

- Irvine, CA, USA

I was called by Kevin Petersen and told I had won 3,500,000.00 and a Mercedes benz Motor car.

He said that they were going to deliver it today at 10:30 am and I would have to have my id and a 1 Vanilla visa gift card for 150.00. He gave me a code number 152pch and told me Deborah Wilson would help if I had any other questions. He told me the head office was in washington dc and the number 240 408 4047

Anyway I did not go and get the card as I called and the girl told me PCH never calls winners, that they just show up.

Anyway she was so nice to me and said it was good to write report.

Susan Miller from PCH said I won $2.5 million and asked for my email address. She emailed several pages of information. She asked for $1400, and I could take out a loan or pay it later. I researched PCH website and they say they never do this. Susan called 3x yesterday. I told her I found out from the PCH website that PCH doesn't call consumers. A different person called today. He said he has a prize and he needs to deliver it to my door. He said I would need a confirmation code which cost $900. I said PCH doesn't ask for money. He asked why I would say that. I said just come to my door, I'm home today, so he hung up. He had an accent
