  2. I was contacted by Monica Vega from New York as a PCH employee stating I was a winner of 950.000 dollars, and she”ll be at my house on 8 3 2015 to pick up 350 dollars for the delivery of the check. I am a cancer patient and this very crule and on disability.

      Hello Shelia – We’re so sorry to hear this. 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! 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 report this scammer to and check out these helpful tips:

    I received a phone call from PCH and that I had won close to a million and a car. First they asked me if I was at home. I replied no. Then I was instructed to go to my closest Wall Mart and I would be met there as they were in the air now. They also told me that I had to pay a registration fee for the car.

    I won a million dollars and a Chrysler from Mr. Goldberg and Michael Collins. I fell for it because I could really use some money. But first I received.a friend and request from Deborah Holland on Facebook . I was out 1700. Dollars before I wizened up.
