Just got a call like this saying they were PCH and I had won 3.5 million & 2013 E-class Mercedes Benz; i just had to call this number back ask for James Wilson or Kevin Brown ... Knew it was too good to be true...so went to put in the number in Google that they told me to call them back on, and yeah I find this website!!!! Was great to be able to confirm that my gut was right & they are officially scammers....nice try tho...
Last week I got a call saying that I won some sort of grant money from this number. They said that I would need to go to my local Wal-mart and get a green dot card and call them back. I called them back after doing some research and told them that I know that they are a scam and to not call me again. This week (its only Monday) I received a call and they informed me that I have now won $485,000 and a new 2013 mercedes e-class with 1 1/2 years of insurance paid for by geico and 1 1/2 years of free gas and tires. Of course now I have to cover some sort of tax and I have to go get two green dot cards. I lost signal with them and have no plans on calling them back! I know this is a scam and I just feel for anyone that will fall for it.
I just got a similar call he said I won 750k. He said he was with Publishers Clearing House. I had a real hard time understanding his English, but after a few calls and some help from my friends I figured out that it was a scam. When he talked to me he went by the name James Carter.
Just got call from "James Wilson" on cell phone told me I won "powerball". Told me to call 276.696.7045 for further information and claim prize. When I did not call the number with in 1 minute "James" called again asking why I hadn't called the number. I told them I do not intend to follow up on scam calls and he hung up on me. Pitty there are so many jerks around to scam others.
Helping Out As Well/It's a Scam
I also received a call from 276-696-7045, but on my caller ID it showed up as an 800 #. I ignored the phone call 3 times and on the 4th time (in a row) i just let it rang and let it go. A male left me a message stating I need to call back #276-696-7045 and ask for James Wilson from Publisher Clearing House (PCH) because I won an amount of money and "congratulations!!" I called the # back, but nobody answered and I got a copy of the PCH answering machine. It said press 1 for....press 2 for...press 3 for.... I pressed all sorts of #, but I was never transferred to a person. At the end of the fake PCH message, it beeped and I did leave a nasty message for the people who are scamming others. This # is from Jamaica and it is DEFINITELY FAKE!!!! AND IS A SCAM!!!!!!! I saw a Dateline episode of people in Jamaica who huddle in a small "business" and can rent computers for the day. While they rent the computers for the day, they spend their entire time scamming people....and sadly people fall for it. I received one of these calls 2 years ago, but it they were claiming they were UPS trying to deliver a package to me, but they needed ALL OF MY INFORMATION.....PLEASE DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFORMATION TO ANYBODY ON THE PHONE AT ANY TIME!! If it sounds too good to be true, it is....I'm worried about the elders because sometimes they may not understand on what's going on and they may give out too much personal information. Please inform your elders not give out personal information!! TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS....IF IT SEEMS FISHY OR DOES NOT SEEM RIGHT.....HANG UP.....ALSO, DO NOT CALL THEM BACK. THESE PEOPLE ARE SCAMMERS AND NEED TO ROT FOR RUINING PEOPLE'S LIVES. THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
I received a call from this number saying that I had won $850,000 and a 2012 Mercedes Benz. They said that they were the Publisher Clearing House and they gave me a claim number. I called the other phone number with my claim number just to see what they had to say. That number is 276-696-7045. It was suppose to be the claims department. They told me the time of my delivery but I had to go purchase 2 greendot card. When I called them back I was suppose to give them the number of the cards so that they could deliver my prize. They also said that any money I had spent on the cards including tax, they would pay me back at the time of delivery. When I told him that I was not giving him the card number he hung up on me although I never bought the cards so I didn't have a card number to give him. He also went by the name Dave Bradley. Please if you get this call know that it's a scam.
