    Got a call today from 876-585-3310…a guy with a severe redneck/drawling accent said to call 876-817-2384 x5 and ask for his manager, John Malone, to give details for them to deliver today the $1 million dollars and car I had won from PUBLISHERS’ Clearinghouse. All the voices at that number were the same guy and, as if that weren’t a big enough red flag, he wanted me to go to Western Union and send $1000 to get the IRS paperwork before they delivered the prize. When I said I wasn’t sending money anywhere without some verification, he hung up.

      1. How does PCH contact winners? And do OS (overseas) people win? A person contacted me on Facebook saying he saw my name on a winners list and decided to ask me if I got my winnings. I had never heard of PCH before
