Beware PCH Scams Like The Green Dot MoneyPak Prepaid Card Scam!

Hi blog readers! When we talk about scams and frauds, we often tell consumers to be wary of anyone who asks you to pay to claim a prize. That is one of the biggest red flags when it comes to identifying a scam. Remember: with Publishers Clearing House, and any legal sweepstakes, you NEVER have to pay any amount for any reason to claim a prize.

Well today we want to warn you about a new kind of PCH Scams involving prepaid cards. You see, some scammers are no longer directly asking victims for money for a fake prize – but they are still trying to get their hands on your hard-earned cash. Pre-paid card scams are being used more and more frequently to swipe victim’s money. And it all happens very quickly. Fortunately though, we’ve heard a lot about how these PCH scams work and can share that information with you to help you keep safe!

It often works like this: someone claiming to be a PCH representative contacts you and informs you that you’ve won a big PCH prize. But in order to claim that prize, you must go out to Walmart or a convenience store to purchase a prepaid card. You’re instructed to put a certain amount of money on the card and then provide the card number to the “reps.” Once these fraudsters have the card number, they’ll wipe the card clean of the money on it and disappear. You’ll never see your alleged prize OR the money spent on the card again. Yikes!

This scam has even spread to Facebook where imposters who are pretending to be the Prize Patrol are trying to trick fans like you into sending money! Take a look at the screenshot below from an imposter Dave Sayer on Facebook.

Blog readers, DO NOT FALL FOR THESE PCH SCAMS! Green Dot Money Pak is NOT associated with Publishers Clearing House in any way. So if you hear that name or receive a friend request from someone claiming to be a PCH Prize Patrol member who has pictures of the Green Dot card on his or her page and are telling you to send money, it’s definitely a SCAM! Remember that PCH would NEVER ask a winner to provide us with any money before claiming the prize. We’re giving the money to you, not the other way around!

So be alert, be vigilant, and be aware of the signs. And as always, if you’re ever in doubt, let us know! We’ll be happy to help.

Laura Wolfe @PCH

P.S. Remember, the only official PCH Prize Patrol pages are Danielle Lam PCH Prize Patrol, Dave Sayer PCH Prize Patrol and Todd Sloane PCH Prize Patrol!

Dear PCH Folks, This phony Todd Sloan JUST NOW (11/08/2012) got me rattled & wound up like a 12-day clock!!! I’m STILL shaking!

Here’s the difference between the Scammer & the Real PCH Todd Sloan! The scammer has his name as: Todd Sloan PCH PrizePatrol – NO space between Prize & Patrol!

The saddest part is, I was ALREADY On PCH playing the daily Lotto, Slots, Games, Searxhing, etc. And THAT is why I thought this scammer was from the REAL PCH!!!

I reported him to Facebook & blocked him before I realized I could get to more folks on his Friend List & warn them…at least I helped a few!!!

PCH, this scammer is good.

Warm Regards, Joye H.

I would love for my name to show on the check as follows: Lourdes Fernandez..
I think publishers Clearing house are amazing. The reason i wish i could win is because i have a sick brother with Cancer, that cannot walk and has slurged speech due to a chemical stroke he had from the Chemo Therapy. This way i could probably get him good good therapy.!! Well anyhow may the best candidate win. thanks “PCH”………..

With me it was Daves picture and not Todd. It was so real it had me fooled. I thought for sure I had won. But when he asked for my contact number so he could call and explain why they were awarding it early the voice did not match up with Dave’s picture. He said he gets that all the time. Never thought Dave could ever be from Kingston, Jamaica. Mossel which is where the cell phone came from. I did contact credit bureau’s and made a police report and notified PCH.

to the REAL people at pch, the men that are posing as pch prize patrol are nothing but crooks! all they want is to take money from people that really are struggling to make ends meet. they should be found, convicted, sent to jail or prison for what they are doing. well, today, i got a friend request from a man named todd slaone saying i had won alot of money and all i had to do was buy a wal mart card put 650.00 on it and they would be at my house by 6 pm. i am no turkey, i wasnt born on thanksgiving day, i am no sucker, i did not come out of a candy bag. but i am very smart, so i copied and pasted the conversation we had and i am posting it on fb to let others see .to the crooks, your day is coming and god sees everything and you will be caught.

I was almost scammed , they wanted me to go to Walmart and put 995.00 on card and call them back to guaranty the million dollar check. He gave me a pch winner web side to pull up and check,sure enough I was listed. His phone number was Jamaica I asked for another number in United States ,he gave me another number to call. After I checked pch scam on web and there was a dozen listed just like mine. So they received no money and I didn’t either.

    I got a call also but they were very clever in the way they scammed, only revealing a little info at a time, sucking me in. When I finally wised up, I disconnected the call and did some quick research. then I called them back, not realizing that I was calling an international number. They never got the money, but I got an extra $100 on my cell phone bill.

Will i wished i saw all this before hand. I was on my Facebook Tuesday when i saw a message and a picture of Dave Sayer wanting to be friends, So i did. Then he started to chat with me, saying i won $50,000.00, First thing i said was is these a joke? And he said i would never lie or cheat you. But said i needed a money pack for 499.99. for the taxes so when i get my check the bank want hold it. Said his rep. would call,so while i am chating with him on Facebook, he called my phone saying he was Todd Sloane. Making it sound so real.In a way i keep thinking scam. But i told him i would have to wait until Wednesday I will get my disability check. So my boyfriend say noone would go thru all this if it wasn’t real. So he said for me being on Disability i will get a discount so just do 399.99. For me thats a lot of money. So he called needed the number off the back of card,He just needed to make sure the money was on the card. That i would be getting a call from the Wells Fargo Bank. And the prize control will be at my house 3:00 on thursday. Thats today.And the lady called said she was from the bank and then said enjoy your money. Anyway last night i got on Facebook. Had a message when i went to my message I saw where i had chated with Dave that the picture was gone and what he wrote “This message is no longer available because it was identified as abusive or marked as spam”. So i tried to get the money off the card and it was gone. Then i started looking on different sites and found out I was scamed. Now that money they got really hurt. Cause I have $ 400. to last me all month, i needed to pay bills and get food. Not sure what i am going to do, Been up all night. And my boyfriend got laidoff so he feels really bad. Still not sure how he was able to delect what he said on my chat. And how did he get my name and phone #.

I don’t see how people can do this to people. How do they sleep at night. I wish I could have seen this. And my boyfriend is diabetic so he is having trouble with his sugar level, because he said do it. See we could have used that money. We are hurting really bad.

I will never trusted anyone. And now when i see PCH i freak out. the number he used, I have been calling and there is a message he says ” all lines are busy leave your name and number will call you back”. Driving me crazy.

Hope I can help other, I would hate to have this happen to anyone. They are good.
I will be letting people know.I am not done.

OMG I cant believe I almost fell for this scam. Growing up in Boston I should know better. They make it sound so real. They said I didnt need to exchange any money that I only need to pay the transport company delivering the car and attorney fee for $500 each, after I received the prizes. I actually left work, ran to the bank. A man by the name of Mathew Green asked me to call when I was on my way back to collect my prizes $67K and Mercedes. I called him back that when he hit me with “You will need to stop at CVS and purchase 3 $500 green dot cards. I went to CVS I didnt purchase but I took a card. In the back of the card it states “If anyone asks for these numbers its a fraud” I called him back pretending to have purchased the money cards. He then said I am printing the receipts I need you to tell me how many numbers are on the back. I told him that I wasnt giving the card numbers to him. He began to get annoyed and I kept asking him questions that he couldnt answer….thats when I realized I was scammed…Thank God I realized before it was too late.

I was just contacted by this Dave Sayer imposter on facebook just minutes ago. He ask to be a friend then starts chatting at you about the prize you have won.. 1 million and 5,000 a week for life. After a long conversation I said I don’t have 399 to buy a card at walmart and I shouldn’t have to pay for a prize. Then when He said… Do you have a $100… I said I don’t get a real good fuzzy about this. He said ok. And in a twinkle of an eye disappears.

wish I would have known about this: I fell for this yesterday 7/11/2013 and was told I won 250,000 dollars and a brand new dodge journey… I was instructed to go to Wal-Mart and buy a green dot card and pay a fee of $750 and return home where the prize patrol would be waiting on me. as I returned home to find no prize patrol and no new car, I was then told that they had the wrong zip code. Then was instructed to go back out and get another card for $499 for .1% of taxes. was told all money was refundable when my prize had arrived. after getting back with that card i was then instructed not to give anyone the activation code on the receipt and said, ok! was then told to get a penny and read of the card numbers which I did. I will tell you these people are very convincing and smooth talking. after that I was told they were 3 blocks away from my house and was instructed to get a nice shirt on. then they proceeded to tell me that they got stop by a weigh station and were going to be late and that I would need to pay a customs charge of $350. after I told them I was not loading anymore money on these cards they then told me that’s ok. go to Wal-Mart and send a money gram. they gave me a name of Daniel Lyons 7090 mirkwood ave. las vegas Nevada. so i sent the money. then was told there was no time to get to the bank so they would be at my house at 9:30 in the morning. they never showed obviously. then the guy called me back and told me that i needed to go to the bank to get a loan. by this time i had already filed a police report and told the guy that “i would stop calling”. i then notified the las vegas police and FBI. do not fall for this. if you do call green dot asap and they might be able to refund your money by putting a hold on the scammers card.

GREENDOT MONEYPAK Scam,,my senior parents living in Ontario, Canada were called by a Mr.Shaw ph#702-347-4959 also used names O’Neil Bennette Whitehouse G.A.W.I and Gary Williams, they just won $2.5million plus will get $400,000 in CASH at the door when they deliver their prizes!! All you had to do was purchase the Greendot moneypak for $200 or go to Western Union and mention the name above O’Neil Bennette Whitehouse.

These idiots I frown on as they PRAY on seniors when they sense a vulnerability–SPREAD THE WORD EVERYONE!!!!

They are very smooth, very very convincing and genuine sounding and quick to tell you that the money is not for himself but for the “merchandiser” to deliver your prizes!

They also were asking for my dad’s Social Insurance Number—NEVER EVER GIVE OUT THESE NUMBERS unless you are applying for a job!

A man claiming to be part of the prize patrol just contacted me. Using the name of Roy Uman. The call came on my cell and said Jamaica. The phone number was 876 836 4790. I was instructed to keep him on the line and go buy a prepaid green dot card in the amount of $250. Just putting this out there for someone else. Of course I didn’t fall for it.

Your description was spot on. I’m in Maryland and just got one of these calls on my cell phone. When I read your piece back to the caller, he hung up. Guess I just missed out on a Mercedes and $4.5Million. Or may be not. Thanks for the post.

There is a man, with a European or East European accent, claiming to be Dave Sayer, who called my friend telling her she won $1 million & a Mercedes Benz, but before they could deliver it, as the “prize winner” she had to buy the Walmart Green Dot Card in the amount of $499, then he’d call back to get the scratch off security number from the back of the card. She did not buy it! Instead, called the sheriff. He said he was in Savannah, but the call came from a Cape Coral, FL cell phone number.

My father who is 80 was contacted by these scam artists and fell for it hook line and sinker. After they got him to send the money by Western Union his prize would be delivered. The next day he was contacted again by these people and said they would need him to send another $500 to cover the delivery charge. Once my dad told them he didn’t have any more money to give them they wanted his checking account info so they can do payment with drawls. We told them on one of the over 30 phone calls that as soon as they deliver the prize he would be able to pay their fees. There were no more phone calls after that.
These people are scum and need to be stopped.
