    28 Aug 15…Called by “Bob Roberts” 876-342-4850. Said we won 1.5 Million, we needed to pay $399.00 via Western Union, and truck was on way. VERY CONVINCING at first. Checked PCH site and found out they NEVER ask for money or call first. I cursed him out and said I was going to report him. Watch for Bob Roberts, Carol Roberts, Carolyn Stearns, etc, of Morristown NJ.

  4. I been received a note on face book for the last 8 day that I was the grand prize winner of the PUBLISHING CLEARING HOUSE by Todd Sloane i know by there Policy that they should not contact the winner by phone or by email or any other web suit but by the prize portal in person on August 31 2015

  5. I received an e-mail from a person by the name of George Boerger stating that I won a sweepstakes. He gave a Batch# 1029974E and a Ticket # 4554737AQ. Please let me know if this is legitimate.

    My mom was contacted earlier today saying that she had won $4.8 million dollars, but the man she talked to had said that she had to pay $524 dollars for the $4.8 million dollar check to be sent in the mail, that’s when my mom knew it was a scam, cause the real PCH doesnt call you, they actually come to your house and tell u that you’ve won. Also, the man had told my mom that the IRS is supposed to call her tomorrow and speak with her about the money. The man that she spoke to on the phone didn’t know her name or anything so we could tell it was a scam.

      I just got called from Jamaica on 876-310-9416 stating I won $500,000 and that they were an to get 10% and working in conjunction with PCH to guarantee my portion of the check which was just going to arrive on the UPS truck. He went so far as to give me a badge# for himself, a pkg# and check#. Wow. I hung up on him and he tried to call me back 4 times before giving up. I knew it was a scam from the get go because I just received my new cell phone # not 12 hours and there was no way they would have it.

  7. I was called several minutes age from a guy calling himself John peterson manager of pch…said I had won a car plus 1.5 million dollars and a money order for 5000 dollars was waiting to b claimed at Western union and I’d need to send them 485 dollars for taxes…I tried to contact pch n tell them about the scam but it’s the weekend so I wasn’t able to connect with anyone so I’m here online to tell u if someone tries to give u a check and they want money back it’s a scam…it definitely pisses u off but hey at least I’m smarter then thats

    I was asked to call1-405-758-5039 for confirmation about my winnings. Her name was Danielles not Danielle Lam. I played her scam all the time searching pch website. I have also received a scam check from May 27, 2015 for $6,835.20 with a 10 million dollar prize but to contact my Claims Manager BEFORE depositing this check. I was to call 1-647-760-3627 Or 1-587-717-0230 and had to keep the winnings confidential to reduce risks of unauthorized access to your claims information. Can’t someone do something?

    I received a call this morning where the caller reported he was with Publishers Clearing house stating I won a new car and a monetary prize. All I had to do was western union $950 to a Susan Francis in Jamaica, who was supposed to come with the TV crew to collect it. I was told it was for part of the IRS tax on that kind of money. He was very adamant about keeping my mouth shut and not telling anyone what was going on. Don’t fall in to this. It is a definite trap and I am out $170.

    1. I received the same call today for the same thing. It’s a SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111
