I just got a call from Jamaica saying they were the Publishing Clearing House. I did not not let them go any farther, I told them they were a scam and they said no they were real. I said no this is a scam, it has been all over the news and I hung up.

I was skeptical as soon as he spoke, told me he was from "publishers clearing house" and I told him I was not interested and to please take my number off the list( this was my cell #) He said " You have to pay to take your number off". I laughed and said never mind and hung up. Both h my numbers are registered on "Do not call " list . I will report this to them also. ( He had an accent like he was not from or even IN this country)

John Peter with the Publishers Clearing House called and said I had won 6 million dollars and wanted to know if I would be at home for the next 1 1/2 hours. I asked why and he said "do you remember registering for a prize?" I said yes and he said "are you still living at your address in Lubbock, Texas?" I said what did I win and he said "you know what you registered for." He asked again if I still lived in Lubbock and I said no and I had already reported my new address to Publishers Clearing House and asked again what I won. He said "F.... you." and hung up.

I received a phone call that I had won 3.5 million dollars and $10,000 per week for life and a voucher for a new car. They gave me a phone number to call in New York, 516-690-6303.  I called that number and they answered the phone as Publishers Clearing House Headquarters and gave me the address of 101 Winners Circle, zip code 20765.  That person gave me a verification code and claim # and told me to send $5,875.00 to Sid Shaheen at 4325 Park Stone Court in Abilene, Texas 79606. Then Mr. Shaheen would come with Publishers Clearing House to my home to deliver the prize and bring me all of the paperwork I needed to sign and a check to endorse FG for Federal Government.  I decided to check them out before I sent any money.

I recd a call today from Publisher's Clearing House that I won $950,000 and a brand new Mercedes Benz. All I had to do was go to Walmart and purchase a moneygram for $1700 to pay for taxes (which is 1% of the prize). When the driver shows up at my house, all I had to do was give them the receipt for the moneygram in order to receive my prize. The man (with an accent) told me he was a Christian but I knew it was a scam.

I recd a call this morning at 10:00 AM and I spoke to Wayne Jefferson. He said he was w/Publisher's Clearing House and I won 5 million dollars but I had to send $159. Wayne had an accent and I couldn't fully understand why I had to send $159. He tried to explain but I still couldn't understand him. We both hung up. I'm sure this was a scam.

Caller said I won 1.5 million us dollars tax free & 2016 white mercedes. All I had to do was go to walmart and get a money gram card in the amount of $120 and someone would be out to deliver the check in about 20 minutes. They wanted my husband to stay home and they had my husband on the home phone while I was going to the store. Also had me on my cell phone while I was gone to the store saying that when I get the card that his boss would speak with me & would give me further instructions. Also told me that my husband would be the beneficiary while I was gone. I became more suspicious and went back home.

I received a call from this number on 5-14-16 at 10:42 am. He said he was with Publishers Clearing House and that I had won 8.4 million plus $7000 a week for the rest of my life . He said he had to fill out a form before we could proceed. I didn't give him any personal info, but he did ask how old I was and I told him. He told me they were going to send someone over to my house with the big check, so I asked him what address they were going to and he gave me a previous address. I told him I didn't live there anymore. He said we would update that in a minute. I told him that I needed some proof that this wasn't a scam and he got defensive and called me a liar. I told him I was going to report the number to the ScamPulse.com and he hung up. Although I didn't give him any PI, they seemed to have enough info that maybe just giving them my age is enough to steal my identity??
