  1. I’ve have had 3 different people saying they were with PCH. One said she was Danielle Lam wanting me to buy a cell phone to send to someone… another wanted me to pay the taxes upfront.

    1. One of the many great things about PCH is that it’s always free to enter and free to win; you never have to pay to claim a prize. Sadly, there are scammers out there who use our good name and reputation to try to deceive people. Often times these scammers will ask for money to claim your “prize”. If you are ever contacted by a scammer, do not give them any personal information and definitely don’t send them any money. Instead, please report all scam contacts that you receive to us via this link: http://bit.ly/Report-Scam-To-PCH. I also encourage you to check out these Safety Tips for some great ways to protect yourself from being scammed. Please be careful everyone; don’t become a scammer’s victim!

  2. I just received a friend request from someone claiming to be Danielle Lam. I did not accept the request but private messaged this person and the person replied and told me that I was going to get a check for 1 million and 5000 per week for life. They asked for my cell number full name and address because I was going to get these prizes tomorrow at 3pm.so they needed my information to verify. I felt it was false so I went online and found this page telling of the Facebook scam. I copied and pasted the page and messaged it in the private message and they disappeared. I went back to the friend request and just like that the Facebook page of the person claiming to be Danielle was gone. I am thankful that I followed my instincts.
