  3. I received a friend request from Danille and had a lengthy chat back and forth about winning 10,000,000.00 and a Range Rover Auto. ( first scam clue we call them card or trucks here). At first the chat was just simple how are, what are you doing etc. Then she put up the posting about the win with picture of the large 10 mil$ check 1land a photo of the Range Rover then a picture of one of the prize patrol holding a bouquet of roses.
    I commented that I thought the winners would not have to give out any information and would always be surprised if they won a big prize.The person came back and said they needed some information to put in their data base to be able to reward the prize. I told them I was concerned because they were asking for information. Full name, address, phone number and email address. Them he ask if he could call so I gave him phone number. He called almost immediately and sound like a Pakistani dialog. He then explained why he needed the information before scheduling the prize patrol out to give the winning check and auto. I asked him what country he was calling from he said he was calling from a number (208 xxxxxxx) which was an assigned number to call from for this prize. When I asked again what country he was in he finally said New York, Washington USA. So I pressed him about New York, Washington and he then call mm a $#$&%#$@ and hung up. Do you think this was a scam😢.

      Hello Francis, this was indeed a scammer contacting you. The real PCH will never notify a winner via Facebook; we also never ask for money to claim a prize. Do not give this person any personal information and certainly do not send them any money! Please report any of this information by following this link: Stay safe everyone!

    I just received a call from a Mr James Carter claiming to be from Publisher’s Clearing House, phoning from Wisconsin phone # 414 409 7542, who would release a $1.5 million check, as well as a midnight black 2016 Mercedes Benz, once I confirmed that I had paid 1.1% of the price fee, through Western Union at our local Walgreens or Walmart to someone an agent, who would meet me there, would inform me about. Hopefully you can close this person down before he takes somebody’s hard earned money from them.
