    I was sent a friend request from Danielle Lam At-PCH. So I accepted thinking well that’s cool, and then they asked me how I was doing and I said fine, and then I asked if it was really Danielle. They said yep and that I had won $25,000! So of course I was excited and asked them when. They then asked for my phone number and I wasn’t sure I wanted to give that to them so I went online and read about pch scams and realized that it was probably fraudulent so I reported and blocked it. She did not ask for any money but when I read online that PCH does not send out friend requests from Facebook I quickly realized that it was a scam.

    I was contacted by phone this morning with the news that I have won 4.7 million plus 10,000.00 a week and a car. The callers name was Stacey and her phone number is 607-699-1725 ext 7070. She told me in order to get registered I have to open an new checking account with my bank and call her back with that number. She did not ask me for any money.

    This just happened to me last night, I had Todd Danille and Dave friend me on Facebook and messager. They asked for my phone number which I gave to Todd and then he asked for my address which I said u have my address. He also told me I won 10 million dollars plus 5 thousand a week. So I said u need to call me before I give anymore info and he did right away. He couldn’t even pronounce Todds name definitely foreign. I told him then that I had his number and was reporting right away and hung up on him. He Dave and Danille all disappeared from my friend list and I blocked his number. Hope that’s the end of that
