    Received a letter and a check for $6,612.00 that I was the 2nd winner of 100 millions dollars cash giveaway promotion sponsored by READERS DIGEST, MEGA MILLIONS AND MULTI STE LOTTERY ASSOCIATION. ( the letter was from PUBLISHERS CLEARING HOUSE) then I received a call from John Baker, a message, to call him back at (760) 820-8809 then followed by another call from Mr Peterson, calling me to let me know that Mr Baker was release from my account and he was taking over.. Q do you still have the check A yeah, I was ready to deposit Q good, once that you deposit the check request a cashier or M O, can’t remember for $2000.oo to cover insurance and attorney fees. I told him OK.. I will go the bank to deposit the check and then I will take off for a few days and on my return I will send you the money..

As we say here at PCH, if the prize isn’t free and you’re requested to send some type of payment to claim it, it’s a SCAM!

    (June 18, 2016) I received a phone call on my cell phone this morning around 8:30 a.m. The man on the phone claimed to be David Sawyer (my processing officer with the PCH Prize Patrol? Pfft) Also, I was told that I was a 3rd place winner in a drawing. (just for shopping at Wal-Mart?) The prizes were 850,000 + Bonus Draw for 250,000 + 2016 C Class Mercedez Benz (color of my choice) + Gold Card for 6 Months Free Gas and 1 Year Free Insurance. Then he said that I am to buy a $980 ??? still trying to to figure out what I was supposed to get to have a receipt for $980? Sorry, it was all too confusing. He told me that he was at a nearby airport in my state.. Louisiana.. and that they were waiting for me to make this purchase at Wal-Mart in order for them to show up and present my prize money, etc. I was told that once I make this payment for $980.. I would get it back and then receive $980 every month for life? Sigh Here is the Phone# 1-876-570-3808. Of course, the area code is Jamaica. What a coincidence.

    (at one point.. he transferred me to speak with someone ‘higher up’ and a lady with a thick accent (who I could barely understand) said her name was Simone Salvadore. Uh uh. Case closed.

    So many more details that I’m leaving out.. like that fact that he asked if I was Christian and stated that he was a religious man and that was totally legit. Blah blah blah. Omg.

    If you need any more information regarding this scam.. please let me know 🙂

    Thank You!
