    In Arizona I won a million dollars, a week later a Mercedes, and later that week $500,000.00. Move back to Michigan and won a million they wanted $249.00 money gram for co formation or verification before delivery of each prize. I still have the messages on messenger they impersonated Todd Sloan, and Danille lam first time I talk to two people representing both . Information I have is in my I-Pad.

      Hi Ronald – That was not the real PCH — That was a scammer impersonating a PCH employee! PCH never contacts winners in advance and you never have to pay to claim a PCH prize! Unfortunately, there are scammers out there who impersonate PCH employees to try and get our fan’s personal information and money. The only way you would know if you won is by the Prize Patrol showing up at your door. Do not give scammers any of your personal information or money! Please be careful and be aware of scammers online by familiarizing yourself with our “Fraud Protection” page ( and always report scammer encounters to

    a couple weeks ago I rec’d a friend request from Todd Sloanee he said I had won 1,000,000. and $5,000 a week for life. I struggled for awhile, but then he said all I have to do is pay $489.99 for my registration number and they would bring it to me the next day. I quit sending anymore messages. Then a ferw days later, a woman called. I belive her name was Felice. Started out like Todd’s. Hi How are you i’m contacting you to let you know you have won. right away I asked if this was the same scam as Todd was doing. She wrote yes, and then disappeared. I was upset at first, but then decided it was a good thing overall. At least she was honest. Today, Todd called back again. He was desperate, and said it will only cost $99.99 to get my registration number. he wanted me to send that from western union right away, and if I did he would personally bring my prize over in the morning. Thankfully, the real PCH posted stuff that tells what is real or scam. I’ve been scammed before 2 times. and not going to let it happen again!!
