I think the prize patrol is heading to Fairfax,Virginia to surprise me next ever since I already won just $100,000.00 in the scratch off card game on the PCH.com website last month.

I am ashamed to say I fell victim to a fraud from 4PM-8PM Wednesday, January-9th by a Jamaican 911 monstor calling from Kingston Jamaica on ph. 1-876-290-1063 with near perfect facebook page (including perfect picture, bio… except for public figure statement) impersonating Todd Sloane pch prizepatrol (note: “Prize Patrol” worded “PrizePatrol”) who went into a chat session with me on facebook for nearly 3hrs (through Brian William NBC news end) to defraud for $699.99 for gold seal for a 10 million dollar PCH PRIZE will certificate!) I am ashamed to say I did purchase a Walmart greendot MoneyPak prepaid card with 14Digit number for said amount and game the Jamaican monster that number (14digit number of Moneypak prepaid card) to lose $699.99 within 10 minutes!

This Jamaican caller kept calling me even on morning of Jan-10 for an additional card to be purchased for the same amount through Moneypak prepaid card for further processing of my $10 Million Prize Win!!!!)

After 14yrs being PCH customer (who has not won a single dime to date) I lost $699.99 to this Jamaican 911 caller & facebook impersonator of Todd Sloane!!!

I feel like killing myself!

Sincerely, Suresh Rao, Ewing, NJ.

Interesting fact: Alaska is the only State landlocked by another Country. Another interesting fact: Due to our National Debt a United States Senator actually suggested we sell Alaska to China to resolve the U.S. Economy…..Crazy idea. Aside from the fact that Alaska is a Strategic Military location, the Senate will not open ANWR and other critical drilling areas that would help our economy due to environmental concerns. We are so environmentally strict and cautious on the North Slope that it is virtually impossible that any negative situation could happen…ESPECIALLY on the Tundra v. underwater drilling. We are so far into Debt with China now that they already ECONOMICALLY own a good portion of the United States. Does the Senator actually think if this crazy idea ever were to happen (which we all know would never get by our Citizens), that China would take ANY Environmental Precautions? Of course not!!! Just some interesting facts for your PCH Blog Readers.
Don’t know how I got off in that direction but it is interesting discussion and information.

    PCH Staff said...

    Hi AL-Malik, thank you for bringing this to our attention. It sounds like you have been the victim of a scam. The offer you’re describing did not come from Publishers Clearing House. Also, there is never a catch with entering or winning any PCH Sweepstakes. PCH, like any legitimate Sweepstakes, will never ask you to pay any fee or make a purchase to claim a prize. You may forward the suspicious email to us at abuse@pch.com or report this occurrence to us using our toll-free number 1-800-392-4190. We also recommend that you report this incident to the National Fraud Center at http://www.fraud.org.

Well, it happened again, no sign of any PCH, showing up at my door!
Alas, someday it might happen if I continue to sign in and play your games. It would be nice if you would change those entry games once in a while, which you have on a couple. It makes it more interesting to keep on entering and makes it more fun to enter. Just a thought! keep me in your thoughts, maybe it’ll help!!!
