    Even though it would be nice to hear from Todd or Danielle, unfortunately I was hit up by an imposter in my Facebook inbox! Beware!! I will continue to look for my check and balloons the old fashioned way!!!!!

  4. Jeanine Hertzog says:

    I think I got scammed as well, but I did not give this person my information to my bank or my credit card, they did ask if I had a car or if I owned a house, which got me thinking something was up
    I hope I don’t get myself in trouble, but just in case, does anyone have any information that may help in case fraud does pop up.

    I was scammed today for $399.99. I feel so stupid. I really thought it was real and they took everything I had. The phone number they used was: 1-876-590-4379. They also used Dave Sayers face on the text which made it seem even more real. I guess I will have to figure it out on money it was all I had. They wanted my bank account info but I didn’t give them that. They used my card . Lesson learned, I am old enough to know better. If I wanted to lose the money I could have burned it.

    Danielle Lampch tried the scam on me Saturday night. The person doing the scam was quick and believable to a point! Red flags went up when they started asking if I had a bank account, and if I could give them numbers to verify my identity! Didnt fall off the turnip truck last night!! When I started asking questions, the scammer got really angry and told me I would forfeit the prize I had supposedly won. I told them that I would provide all the information to them only in person! They had a melt down! I should have figured it out, but self greed almost blinded me into making a really big mistake! I reported the Facebook page/user immediately. The text message I was sent on my cell phone was reported to Verizon! While it is exciting to hear about people winning prizes from PCH….things like that do not happen to me! Be aware and question everything!!!

    Hi. I was contacted on Facebook by Danielle lam and David sayer at the same time. Unfortunately I gave my address to them before I realized that was a bad idea. No money though. But now I’m worried for our safety. Scammers should rot in Hell! It’s the most dastardly evil thing someone can do!!

    1. Jeanine Hertzog says:

      I was just contact by Dave and Danielle today, and the one for Dave told me that my name was pulled and that they wanted my name, place of residents, phone number. They didn’t ask me for my credit card info or my bank info, but now I’m worried, is there some steps for me to do to ensure that no fraud will happen, I’m going to call my bank money and alert them, but I want to know how not to fall for this in the future
