Don’t Fall For The Green Dot MoneyPak Prepaid Card Scam!

GreenDotMoneyPak

One of the most important things we do on the PCH blog is warn our friends about Publishers Clearing House scams! Unfortunately, PCH scams involving Green Dot MoneyPak prepaid cards are on the rise. Fraudsters have been attempting to use Green Dot MoneyPak prepaid cards to steal hard-earned money from innocent people, like you. Read on and discover how to protect yourself from being a victim of fraud!

In case you’re not familiar with them, Green Dot MoneyPak cards are prepaid cards that can be purchased at convenience stores and used in place of a credit card. Since they’re prepaid, if a scammer gets the code located under the scratch-off strip on the reverse side of the card, they can claim the money from the card very quickly.  And once it’s gone, it’s gone forever.

MoneyPak Back

Scam scenarios involving these cards might unfold in a variety of ways, but the gist is that scammers tell their victims that they have won the PCH sweepstakes, but they need to first pay a special “insurance” or “tax” by purchasing a Green Dot MoneyPak prepaid card for a specific amount of money and providing the number located under the scratch-off strip on the back of the card over the phone. However, these scammers are NOT from PCH and have NO intention of awarding any prizes.

Can YOU Spot A Scam?

Scenario # 1:  You’ve just received an official-looking letter that states that you’ve won $1 Million and a new car from PCH. When you call the number on the letter, you’re asked to purchase two Green Dot MoneyPak Prepaid Cards for $500 each, scratch off the back and provide the number over the phone. The “representative” on the phone explains that it’s just “insurance” for prize delivery.

SCAM!  If this happens to you, DON’T purchase a Green Dot MoneyPak card and DON’T give the scammer any personal information — even if he sounds sincere! Publishers Clearing House SuperPrizes are personally delivered by the Prize Patrol. Plus, you never, ever have to pay any amount of money to win a PCH prize — it’s the law!

Scenario #2:  You receive a friend request on Facebook from someone who claims to be Dave Sayer of the PCH Prize Patrol. Later, you get a private message that states you’ve won $500,000 from PCH. You’re requested to purchase a Green Dot MoneyPak card in the amount of $500 and message him back the number located under the scratch-off strip on the back of the card to cover “taxes” on the prize.

SCAM!   No one affiliated with the PCH Prize Patrol will ever send you a friend request over Facebook.  If this happens to you, don’t accept the request or provide any personal information. You can even follow Danielle Lam’s steps to report a Publishers Clearing House scam on Facebook.

Remember friends, don’t fall for the Green Dot MoneyPak Prepaid Card scam!  As always, if you receive a letter, a telephone call, an email or a social media “friend” request from someone claiming to be from the real PCH and you’re asked to pay a “fee” of any type to claim your prize…STOP!  It’s a SCAM!

All the best,

Hi Elaina R.,

On January 4, 2014 I got a phone call from someone saying that I had won 2.5 Million plus a car from PCH and gave me all these numbers and then asked if I could answer some questions, then I told him to get a real job and that PCH does not call or become your friend on FB. That was so so scary, and I am sure I did the right thing by hanging up on him. I did ask where he got my number and he would not tell me, just before that I was filling out a questionnaire on your PCH app and I put my phone number down and I had to exit the app and then that is when he call me, do you think there is a connection between the caller and me filling out your questionnaire? I hope not because you think if it is for PCH it is secure and that is why I feel I can fill them out.

Please advise me on what might of happened here and can they use any thing I said to them? I did not give them any personal information, and at first I just thought I would go along with it all to see what happened, but they were giving me these numbers and having me right them down and then having me repeating them back to them, I am sure this would be a nightmare for en elderly person or anyone. Any suggestions on all of this???? I still have the number if you would like it, please advise and I am so very sorry that this is happening to all the PCH fans!!!

I just wanted to wish you a very Happy New Year Ms. Elaina R., and you are doing a great job by informing us about these scams!!!

Great job PCH!!!THE BLAME GAME WAS GETTING OLD! PEOPLE EANT TO WIN …AND THEN YOU RECIEVE THIS TEXT OR CALL THAT YOU’VE WON BIG…YOU FORGET OR DIDNT READ THE RULES TO THE GAME OR JUST GO BLANK THAT IS TJIS REALLY HAPPENING TO ME UNTIL SOME ONE ASK FOR MONEY TO RECIEVE MONEY…WHAT? MAKE YOU RAISE A BROW!! TAXE TIME COME AROUND OR YOU OWE TAXES…THEY DONT ASK YOU FOR MONEY THEY TAKE IT OR ASK YOU WOULD YOU LIKE TO PAY UP NOW OR WOULD YOU LIKE THE FEE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR TAXES? I’M PRETTY SURE THAT THERES BUSINESSES OUT THERE YOU MIGHT HAVE TO PAY TAXES OR FEES TO RECIEVE WHATEVER IT MIGHT BE, if they can’t mail you legal documents and give you time to check things out for safety purposes….well you know what do next! Be careful who you befriend on Facebook cause your personal Information can be easily obtained…like your home phone and cell phone number. Facebook will ask if you want the people you befriend added to your contact or the other way around……the puont is if you say yes to anything….that is the start of your personal information exposed!
I hope this helped someone! If not someone please help me explain what I’m trying to say!

That is one Scam I hope I never fall Victim to,Fraudster have in the Minds that what they are doing is a Clever Scheme but they Sooner or later get Caught.

But I hope this ends Soon for PCHFans and the fraudsters Who
Commit this type of fraud will become themselves the Victims of there own fraudulent Scheme.

Its like a dope dealer,He make money selling dope & then he gets ripped off by other dope dealers and acts as though he legitimately got the Money,that somehow its his money,In my
Opinion,Its ill-gotten gains.

Same go’s for fraudsters!!!

They’ve been calling me for the past 3 days. Saw the missed called, finally spoke to the person today with the name Natasha McCorthney she said. I suspected it was fraudulent but she had my information already, my prior address and she had my first and last name. Sad thing when she read out my prior address I had told her that I moved and gave her my current address, which I’m now so worried about. She sounded so sincere even as I was interrogating her later, she spoke about the Green Dot thing and also that they work with the IRS and the fund or so is for taxes. I told her that I’ll call the IRS she became hesitate stating that its the Green Dot company that works with them. She asked when I’ll have the $200 because she needs to confirm with the IRS that I want the winning money $1 million or inform them that I rejected the funds. Told her that if I verify all the information and its comes out accurate I’ll contact her in three days – This is the number she gave me and called from, although she called me with a private number several times prior (970) 817 – 9992. One thing that threw me off, although she sounded nonchalant about my decision to accept the money,in a very professional manner she was hesitant when I told her that I’ll get back to her in three days. She asked WHY three days? BTW she was definitely an American, in her late 30′s more like 40′s.
There needs to be a way of catching this folks, because if they lose with one person they just move on to the next

Last night i was approached by someone claiming to be from PCH wanting to talk by computer, & i am not a computer whiz, but after several questions & answers i was asked to purchased a GREEN CARD at the price of $199.99, I was also told i would be reimbursed within 5 min.and they could come on here because they (PCH MEN) were staying with a friend. Needless to say i was shocked by the amount of money i was to have won, But i also knew they (PCH ) was not spending the night with a friend and did not make deliveries at night, So when i quoted what Danielle said about not paying for a prize, I did not hear any more back from them.

A man claiming to be with GE Capital Finance called me asking if I wanted a $1000 loan. He transferred me to his Supervisor who in turn instructed me to buy a Green Dot Money Pack at Wal-Greens, to load it with $110 to show proof that I have a stable income. When I questioned him & stated it makes no sense to have to make a purchase to get a loan he became forceful & irritated. He did give me a call back # to call him & give him the # under the security strip. I wish I knew a speedy way of turning him in.
