My husband got a call yesterday form a foreigner, John Anderson, who told him he had won $1.8 million from Publisher's Clearing House. My husband had a hard time understanding him because of his accent. He told my husband to buy a $500 secure credit card, like Visa. He said we could have balloons like you've seen on TV. He said the crew is waiting in a hotel room in Columbus, Ohio. He said dignitaries and police would arrive at the house within an hour of him receiving the card. He said they would follow him to the bank. My husband kept talking to him. The man called a second time.

I answered a call last Saturday claiming to be from Publishers Clearing House. It was a man. He did not give his name. I have had similar calls. He sad I won $25 million. He wanted $550 upfront. He gave a line about the US Government. Every state has border patrol. Something to that nature. He insisted that I have the money in my checking account. I told him I don't have money in my checking account. He said I could have you arrested for fraud. Wanted me to go to Walmart and get a prepaid credit card. He said that they were on the way to my house to deliver the $25 million. I knew the entire time it was a scam. He became nasty when I told him it is a scam. I hung up on him. He called right back he said you don't hang up on me. I think this is the number that called me. 876-823-9553.

Type of a scam Phishing

Publishers clearing House cause my brother to commit suicide because the people he was dealing with or from Nigeria and hooked him And scammed him and made him think he was profiting while paying out also and put him in such a bind and he lost his child from it from Debt and constant contacts with him and wouldn’t leave him alone,eventually. He was in denial that the company was just a scam and he couldn’t sit free of them. And I’m sure this is happening to many others as I continue to see publishing clearinghouse everywhere and I saw it today in my emails under some ad company and living social in Chattanooga is where I saw it primarily
