    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

She stated the FBI knew what was going on and I was not to tell anyone about my winng this. Please please let me know about this. She sent me a friend request on Facebook and that’s how this all got started
