Said he was from Publishers Clearing House and I had one 6.5 million dollars a year and $10,000 each week for life along with a 2019 Mercedes Benz car. He gave me a confirmation number and then in the end he said that I needed to give him $999 for some kind of a registration fee to register with the the government or something. I did not send the money, I hung up and am reporting to you.

Caller stated- that she got a phone call from Mark Maxwell from PCh Publisher Clearing office. He told her she won 1 million dollars and a car. He asked what airport was near her so he could delivery her the car. Then at the end he said now to receive this money all you need to send me is $750.00 dollars. She declined. Caller gave no account information.

A man identifying himself as Roy Green-ID 5252 called and stated I had been selected by PCH as the winner of 3.5 million dollars and a Pearl White Mercedes. I was given tracking #, a check #, a govt. ref # and an attorneys name and ID. I was then told I needed to go and purchase a money gram for $555.55. This remark raised a red flag and I advised him not to call me again. He called four consecutive times and I became very rude so he disconnected the call.

My husband received a call on our home phone a couple weeks ago about winning PCH information for me. He told them to call back that I was I received a call on my cell phone from 876-562-xxxx (Dave S) claiming I had won last month and needed to call the Claim Dept. 470-339-0337 (Susie P, Gen.Mng.) immediately. I said I had an appointment and was leaving and would call in a couple of hours. I since checked this number on line and am reporting it as it appears to be another scam of some sort. I did not call back so I don't know what Susie P would want from me and will hang up if they call again.

We were called by Shirley Brown from Dallas, Texas. But she called from Peter Robinson phone. Mr. Robinson then talked to us and told us what to do. We were to go to Walgrens and make a payment thru western union for the Registration Fee of $299.00. Then Mr. Robinson would give us the information we needed to collect out $750,000.00. When we were filling out the information the clerk told us about another person that was given money to a person from a Jamaica phone number. The money was to be sent to Carakay Campbell in Queens, N.Y.

caller represented PCH (Publisher's Clearing House) saying I won money. Asked me if I had pen/paper and I answered "yes"...and was immediately disconnected. Had read about "yes" scam and knew what had just happened to me. The caller ID showed Jamaica as source and he identified himself as rep of PCH. Also spoke with Spanish accent.

- Lubbock, TX, USA

I have had for phone calls from someone claiming to be PCH, Publishers Clearing House. The first phone call stated that I won millions of dollars and a new Mercedes. The second phone call was giving me instructions of how to pay $10,000 for insurance in order to receive my prize. I was driving during the third phone call and did not take it. The fourth phone call I told them I was not interested in their scam and for sure was not sending them $10,000. The person who called sounded caucasian with a very clear voice and possibly someone that had had a stroke and was speaking very slowly and concentrating on being very clear.

Received a message from a Facebook friend stating that the saw my name on a list of winner from a PCH and poker give away. Had me going until they asked for money. After a closer look they were using an older picture..

Person claimed to be Dave Sayers from PCH and I had won 1.5 million but I needed to be dressed business casual for photography purposes and needed to go immediately to Walmart to get a purchase receipt for $687.15 to pay taxes ahead of time and Pete Rickets and the PCH person and the news media were on their way to my residence with the check. PCH fraud hotline I spoke with immediately after the call, of course said this was a scammer call, they, nor any sweepstakes will ever ask for money to claim prizes. I alerted my family to the fraud attempt. Was a rather elaborate attempt giving package number:75357034882us-ne and being handled by Bank of America and Warren Buffet. The person seemed to be in a panic that I placed him on mute as I was checking the phone number online, claimed we were being recorded and I could not place him on mute.


I believe I might have just fallen for a phone scam trying to get me to say yes.....I did...they said they were from Publishers Clearing House & I had won 2.5 million & a new car.

Original call to me 876-561-3943 -couldn't see then that call originated from Jamaica.

Individual said his name was James Peterson

He had me call 913-937-0630 & talk to John Ford - during conversation I did say yes- shortly after call was disconnected.

Please advise,

Thank you,

Original call from above number. Informed me that I won a car and a certified check from PCH. I was instructed to call 1 876 461 9789 and ask for agent Malone, for further instructions. I was told to go to my nearest Walmart and purchase some papers They couldn't tell me what kind of papers or where to find them. They took my name and address, and wanted to know how far away from wal mart I was. As I was backing out of my garage, he said, When you get back, Opra Winfrey will be at my house with a new car and a check for a million dollars. then he said, you do know about the taxes don't you? He said it's 1% and that comes to $1400.00. You do have the money don't you?

That's when I hung up.

Said to give $295.00 to get one million and a car.

The call came in from Jamaica and the guys name he was using is Don Peterson. He said he was from PCH and asked me if anyone from the PCH had contacted me before. I told him no. He went on to congratulate me on winning a Mercedes-Benz and $850,000. He gave the the prize code as $850000 for the money and the car plate # was 1881PA . Then he asked me what time I would be home and I gave him 1pm. Then he told me he had to finish some paper work and would call me back in 20 mins. I am at work and I work in customer service and was with a customer when he called back and couldn't take the call. Then right after I got done helping the customer my phone rang again and it was a restricted number. He asked me what kind of issues I was having with the agent. I told him none as I was at work and couldn't answer the phone at the time he called back. They both told me that the phone call was being recorded and that the BBB and Some government agency was listen to the call. This guy then went over all of the prizes again then asked me my address. I ask him what address he had in front of him as the first man said I should have received something in the mail. The phone got quiet and then he hung up. I have not been bother with another phone call since. I hope no one falls for the scam.
