A man with an accent called and said he was with PCH, Publisher's Clearing House. He said his name was David Johnson, and wanted me to write down a badge number, claim number, and several other numbers. He asked for my name and when I would be home to accept a prize of $1.8 million and a Mercedes Benz. Next, he wanted to know how far away I was from a WalMart or Walgreens. I don't know what this was for, except to possibly purchase something. I told him I was busy, and he wanted to call back in three hours, but about an hour and a half later that number rang by cell phone again, and I did not answer the call. When I did arrive home, I called the BBB, who confirmed it was a scam, and that the 876 area code for the number was for Jamaica.

He called saying that she won $385,000 and a 2016 gmc Denali and that all she had to do was go to a local walmart,walgreens or cvs to purchase a invitation receipt to claim my prize. The price went from $950 to $200 to purchase the invitation receipt to claim my prize. She explained to Mr. Jack Miller that she needed to speak to my daughter because she handles all my finances and that I would have her call him. She called him and after her questioning him and the publisher clearing house process to redeem prizes, he hung up.

A person calling himself Donald Taylor called on a business phone line. He said that he was calling from PCH and that I had won 2.5 million and a new Mercedes! He gave me his phone number. He also gave me a prize number (EK69491582300US) and a winner's package number(PC18669975997) and had me repeat these numbers to him. He also gave me the name of a UPS driver (James Washington) whom he would connect me with later in the conversation. He asked me if I wanted confidential delivery or non confidential delivery of the prize. The he said he had some questions to ask me, the first of which was "Are you a U.S. citizen". I was interrupted (as this is a business) and he eventually hung up. So, I never heard what I had to do to claim these fabulous prizes. I called the number and it rolled over to voice message, but was for the person who had called. He seemed to speak with an accent, but I couldn't make out exactly where from. He sounded very legit if it hadn't been to good to be true.

I got a call from Publishers Clearing House saying I had won 1.5 million dollars and I needed to go to Western Union and wire $585 to Lowell, Ma. I told the man I was going to pass on the win and he got really irritated and said that I could just wire $200 then. I said no thank you and called the BBB.

They use Facebook to pretend to be a PCH Representative and friend request you. Then they message you saying you won a grand prize, they ask to give them private information, and for a cash advance to claim your prize.
