A guy who said his name was Whiteside with a private number on the Caller ID called and said he was from Publisher's Clearing House and I'd won a lot. I was to call aq Claim Dept. (number above) and when a person answered I was to enter my PCHID # and my Pin # which the caller gave me. I didn't call the number but called the Better Business Bureau instead. Publisher's Clearing House NEVER contacts people by phone. They show up at your door.

I got a Facebook IM from my classmate, saying I was eligible for a grant and to call a number. I called. She said she was a Born again Christian, Child of God, Angel of God, and she'd been sent to bring me a good gift. She wanted me to answer a list of 12 questions: monthly income, mother's maiden name, marital status, etc. She said she's really legitimate, sent me pictures of PCH prize winners. She said $150,000 was to be delivered to my house in a box from Publisher's Clearinghouse. I was told not to tell anybody about it. I was told to go out and buy a $500 Google Play card. Then she asked "Do you understand?", I said no. When I asked questions, she didn't answer. When I messaged my friend, she said it was safe, trust them. She said we're waiting for you to buy Google cards. I told them I would report them to the police. Everything was done through Facebook, and the grammar was awkward.
