    This just happened to me. I received a call saying they were from pch and that i had won a cashiers check and a car. I was half asleep and mostly suspicious so I played along. The man told me to call the manager right away and told me the number, he then made me repeat the number to make sure that I go it right. He was rather insistent that I call “the manager” right away, too. The number was 1-876-817-2384. He didn’t ask for information but I’m sure that the manager would’ve probably “needed” my SS number, address, id number, and a plethora of other so-called “needed information”. I’m now feeling thankful that I checked online to see if this was a scam!

    I received a called today as well. Guy name is Peter. Asked me to purchase a green dot card of 399.99. His call back number is 1-876-809-0969. Said he works for the PCH. Department. That my check would be with the Bank of America. He constantly repeated himself making sure I had written the information down correctly. I could hear roosters in the background and other men talking as well. He constantly told me that the process was 100% real. Lol I knew better . He also gave me two sets of number. Codes. ED6160 & 232373

    Putting your children in the middle of adult
    decisions and conflicts hurts them more than it
    hurts your ex-spouse. There are several ways to restore a beautiful smile, if you have a cracked tooth or if the series of
    them were cracked, dental fillings can be applied to each teeth in order to reshape
    them and make them look natural, Veneers also add a beautiful touch
    to the entire reconstructive procedure because they can’t even things out
    and they can make you look like you’ve never had a
    problem before, not to mention that they can make your smile look a lot brighter than it did before.
    And distortions in the template are what manifest into brain imbalances in the biological system.

    I agree with Martin, SEO is not a matter of “tricking” the Search Engines. SE’s atmtpet to provide the most relevant results based on the information available to them from content, tags, linktext, backlinks, etc. Therefore making your site and content relevant to the keyterms you are targeting and categorizing your content and pages so that the spiders can easily crawl and index them is the way to go.I would like to add that Google is tailoring the results based on the generality or specificity of the keyterm so it is best to structure your site and your keyterm distribution in this manner. Your homepage is for your more general “governing” keyterm(s)and they become more specific as you drill down to the specific content. A good SEO should help you make your site and content as relevant as it can, not use tricks or irrelevant terms just to drive traffic. They should also be ale to show you real successes. Best of luck!~Jeff Chance |

    I wanted to inform you of a new scam involving your name that just arrived at my uncle’s. The check was from (supposedly) a company named SDS Logistics Services, at 19 Colonial Dr, Youngstown, Ohio. This firm is a legitimate trucking company whose name is apparently being misappropriated. The check was for $977.55 of a so-called winning of $75,000. There were numerous grammatical errors in the letter, so I knew at once it wasn’t real. The contact number was listed as 1-514-458-1659 and the name was Michael Wasowski. I hope this helps in some way.

    On 9/28/13 I spoke to your office and I thank you for the information. The question I wanted to ask you was how do these people know we are customers of PCH and have some info on us (unlisted phone numbers) Is it coming from our mail or from our computers, are they hackers or some other type of thief? Keep up the good work. Thanks again..KF
