CALLED ME @ 10 AM THIS MORNING & CLAIMED I HAD WON 2ND PLACE IN PUBLISHERS CH DRAWING WHICH AMOUNTED TO $500,000 & WOULD BE DELIVERED THIS THURSDAY BY A SPECIAL COURIER IF I WAS HOME. I SAID YES, THEN THE CALL DISCONNECTED AND THE LINE REMAINED BUSY WHEN I DIALED BACK. THE CALL APPARENTLY ORIGINATED FROM ALBANY, NY?
I can confirm this person said they were from a lawfirm and called about a cash award...I cannot confirm if this was PCH as they hung up twice immediately.
Got this call at 9AM and was told I won a cash award but needed to get a prepaid credit card with $75.00 on it to pay a "fee" by 5pm today. Stop calling Scammer!!
Caller said they were from a Law Firm and that I had won from PCH 500 thousand dollar and had I been contacted by PCH wanted to know how I felt about the win then the phone disconnected.
called 11am this morning......did not get to phone in time.......tried to call it back 3 times.......fast busy.....
call in the am . said it was a law firm and I had won a large amount of money when I said how much is going to cost me . he hung up the phone.
He claims I have won 500,000 dollars in sweepstakes I never entered and that the cash prize would be delivered on Monday. However he said he needed to speak to both me and my wife for legal reasons. Told him that I was at work and my wife was at her work. He told me he would call me back this evening. I can hardly wait. I contacted the firm in Albany that he claimed to represent and they told me that they have received numerous calls and emails. They have filed a complaint with the police in Albany. It is a scam. They suggest that you also file a complaint with your local PD and refers to the Albany incident #14-009082
I also received a phone call from these dumb s***s ( 518-449-3355 ) that try to pray on people with all their bull s**t "Your a Winner" line. We'll, if only we could chose where stray bullets fly, it would make me feel like I won something really special!
call me twice 1/21/2014 claim I had won $500.000 and i was like you know if is to good to be true than is bull c**p, Boise Idaho
The a man called me from the same exact # saying I won 2nd place in some sweep stakes and won $500,000 dollars adn that he worked at a Law Firm that was handling everything for the Cash Prize winners. Started asking me things like if my address was correct, which he already knew. Then started asking me things that he needed for tax purposes, which wasn't too indepth with detailed questions. Yeah and also , " Oh a special courier will deliver your check between 9AM TO 11AM on Friday morning. He called me at 9:32AM on 1/22/14 while I was opening the store that i work at in Tampa, FL.
Called at 08:04 (8:04 AM) EST and said Hello repeatedly and hung up. Attempts to call back rang and rang, no one answers. I'd like to wake his a*s up when he's sleeping and tell him to go to a very, very hot place and burn there for eternity. I don't sleep well, and this jerk wakes me up and hangs up before even trying his apparent scam.
called at 800 am, said i won a lot of money. l laughed and said for what am i so lucky . he said you won consumers clearinghouse prize. i laughed again and he hung up.Are scammers really calling this early in morning?This GERBEL needs a good beating !!!!!!!!!
I Rec'Vd a call this morning that I was a second place winner of 500,000.00 and that the taxes were reduced from 216,000.00 to 65,000.00 and then the phone went dead.
