    Yesterday, I received a scam phone call telling me I had won a Mercedes, and 5 million dollars from Publisher Clearing House. Before I hung up, I was asked to provide my age, the name of my bank, if I was married, if I had a debit and credit card and if I had a savings account. In the recent past, I have received multiple posts telling me I have won a Yeti cooler, Makita drill, and several other money prizes. Just a reminder to everyone to keep your guard up.

    I had a scam call this morning from PCH (Publishers Clearing House) Supposedly, I won four million dollars, $5K/wk and a new Mercedes. I was suppose to call them for details and the clicker was I had to give them a deposit in order to release the funds. Just a heads up to not be vulnerable to stuff like this.

    FYI: I just received a phone call from Publishers Clearing House the caller asks if I can hear him, don't answer. said I won 2 Mill and a car and if I wanted to collect it, I had to pay the taxes on the winnings. I told him if I had to pay the taxes up front that I didn't want the money or the car. Then he said that if I didn't pay the taxes the IRS was going to arrest me and put me in jail. I told him I would be better off in jail and hung up. he called back at least 5 times, and I hung up every time the number he was calling from 516 405 4454. I called the local phone company to verify the number, I was told the number doesn't belong to publishers clearing house. BECAREFUL OF SCAMMERS

    Received via email:

    I am excited to share that I just received a call from Publishers Clearing House to advised me that I have won 3.1 million dollars and a new Mercedes. I just have to “Clear Up” the $500 customs fees. They have 3.1 million and a Mercedes for me and they don’t have the $500? Don’t be swindled by these very convincing con artists who knew my nane, address etc.
