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.
