John Goldwater called from publisher's clearinghouse. He said i won second place which was $750,000. I asked him how I had won since i didn't enter and he fed me some story about a random drawing. I saw the phone call was from Jamaica. i asked him if this was a scam and he hung up. I called back he gave me some bull*** about how publisher's clearing house wasn't obligated to give me the money if I wasn't willing to cooperate. He made me write down the name of he company, the amount I won, a ticket number and some sort of claim number. He wanted to know my citizenship status, age, address, name, whether I was a member of aarp or triple a.

This person named Robert Hall called me on 11/29/17 stating that I had won $850,000 from Publishing clearing house. He said it would be a check from Bank of America and her name was Lisa Moore the rep. He also gave me the attorneys name of Mary Miller. The ups drivers name of Michael Sayer. Also he gave me a check number that the $850,000 would be on. He put me on hold for a hot second to supposedly call the IRS. He said I had to pay $158 for registration and insurance fees. He wanted me to go to a walmart, but he never called back to tell me where to send the money which I wasn't going to do anyway. Publishing clearing house don't call and tell u that u won money and u have to send them money. He could barely speak ENGLISH and was calling from Jamaica.

Guy Goes by the name James B, Says he is with Publishers Clearing House and that i won a random raffle for shopping at stores like Walmart, Walgreens, CVS and a couple other ones i dont remember. Said i won second place this month of a prize of over $10,000, a mercedes bins, a washing machine, a dryer, and a blender. BUT before i can have this shipped to me "tomorrow" i have to help him fill out a form and then i would have to pay 1% of the prize money which came out to $250 to even get it. they have been calling me over thenksgiving weekend and since then. i told them i do not trust them and they keep calling back and i havent picked up the phone for them since. they use UNKOWN NUMBER as well so i just dont pick up. when i did pick up thei first couple times they even had me talk to their "Manager" this isnt the first time I've gotten this kind of a call but eh, i only picked it up cause they first used the washington number. outside the country i'm not picking it up.

i did not play their game, no money lost, no information given out. just being harrassed by a company that "doesnt want to waste their time" looked up how people win PCH stuff and you have to enter, which i didnt. so, no harm done aside from needing the DO NOT DISTURB on so they cant wake me up when im sleeping or have my pocket vibrate through out my work day.

he also told me not to tell anyone i won, said his badge number was 33 33 US, and said they work with the FBI, and the IRS and can get my information through bills, and places i shop.

Man called my 81 year old mother and told her she had won money and a car from Publisher's Clearing House. He gave her a number to call to verify. I called the number myself and caller id came up as Jamaica. The man called back and asked if I had called the verification number. I told him it had come up as Jamaica. He said that was incorrect and they were out of Las Vegas and proceeded to give me another number to call. I started looking up scams on the ScamPulse.com and found similar things had happened to other people. I had questioned him when he called back the second time and he seemed a little flustered. He didn't bother to call back and see if I had tried the second number he had given me. The phone numbers he had given me were 876-572-1759 and 876-572-1869.
