Caller informed us that we had won a prize & asked if we wanted to receive it at our Arkansas address.When I told him no, He became very vulgar and told me "then get the f--k off my phone b---h".I called the number back, He answered "Michael Anderson with Publishers House". However the name on the caller I D was J.M.Kingston. I believe that he was going to ask for money for us to receive "our prize".

you'll receive a call a woman will tell you. you've won 250.00 in gift cards. and to receive this promotion. you must sign up for 6 magazines. of your choice for 60 months= 5 years. she will answer your questions and if you listen to her close she contradicts herself. it s only 3.98 a week, or 23.98 a month. its up to you how you want to pay it. she will say i need to transfer me to your supervisor to make sure I done my job right. she says put a good word in for me. this man comes on, and ask how long have you lived at your address. what is your birthday. where do you work how long have you worked at your job. then he said what charge card do you use most. and he needed the number to setup automatic billing. I ask If he could send me a invoice and I would call them back, he said no we ave to do it over the phone. I said I am sorry i don't want to be involved in any scam. he said I could look at my phone and see that there is a number there. and they don't sell the code on the back of the charge card. and he said I will be giving you a tracking number. I said said well anyone can come up with a phone number, and I could make up a tracking number and it has to be 16 digits long. So no. your getting my card information. I said I didn't want to be involved in any scam. he does have other personal information. and i hope nothing comes of it. if your a legit deal you will mail me a invoice, he said mam you have a good day and hung up.(caller i.d.269-462-8088), (when my husband heard was going on. he told me ITS A SCAM!) also he said up the in Michigan alot. but the number on my caller id is a Michigan number, I wished i would looked at the before i kept giving him and her information.

A man claiming to be a James Nelson, from publishers clearing house, contacted me and told me I won 650000 and a new Mercedes. Long story short he needed a 1% fee to cover a money transfer. The phone number is 1876 842 8730. When I hung up on him he left a vey vulgar message. He was obviously a non native English speaker so I don't expect him to be caught, just thought you should know

Consumer reported that she received a call from someone claiming to be with Publishers Clearing House. She said he had a foreign accent. He told her that she had won a 2016 Lexus and $1.8 million. All she needed to do was get a money card from WalMart. Consumer told her that she couldn't drive to WalMart. They asked her if she could phone a friend for a ride and she told them that she could call the police and maybe they would give her a ride. They said good! After she got the moneycard (no amount given) she needed to call 876-505-2804. Once they got the money, they would meet her at the airport with her car and prize money.

Reviewed a letter from Publishing Clearing House that my father won a prize of $2,500.000.00. Included with the letter was a check for $7291.30. The maker of the check is Draco Services Inc. it also states to contact the claim manager before cashing the check. The claim manager is Andy Jones. The check looks real bit after doing some online research, I believe it's fake.

They are calling saying they are with publishers clearing house. And you've won x amount of money but you need to pay legal fees before you can receive the money. According to publishers clearing house official website, they never ask you to send money. This last call came from Jamaica. They got upset when I told them what I knew.
