chris said: They called me without leaving a message. I'm sure it would have been some kind of scam if I had picked up.
Scoobs said: A man tried to call my cell phone first but I was not able to answer it before he hung up. He then called my husband's cell phone immediately after trying mine. He said that his name was John Peterson from Publisher's Clearing House and that we had won 350,000 dollars and a new Mercedes Benz. He told my husband that we would receive the money that very day if we paid a fee. He also did talk about having to pay taxes on it as well. My husband and I were both very suspicious and did not give out any info to this man. My husband asked him what kind of scam he was trying to pull on us and the man told him to have a nice day and then hung up! DO NOT give out info to these people. We have found several articles on the internet about these scam artists and their scams to get people to send them money.

Pam said: I think this number is a scam. he said is name was David Williams and he was calling from Las Vegas, Nevada. Any information on this name, etc. please let me know. His English language was broken, and am sure he is not from the USA. The telephone number to reach him is 1-876-371-5745. He wanted fifteen hundred to recieve prize of 5.5 million and a 2015 blue cadilac.

Elbee said: The caller claimed to be from Publisher Clearing House and he was prepared to give me the prize money today. He was very convincing until he wanted me to go get a money order from a local supermarket. He said that the PCH were in town and would be at my home within the hour with 2 Highway Patrol officers to give me a check and a representative from the IRS would collect the 1% state tax. What really scared me was he wanted to know what I would be driving to the supermarket to get the voucher. I wondered if they had someone local waiting for me to show up with cash at the supermarket. I called the highway patrol on another phone while my husband talked to him on my phone. I figured the highway patrol would know if the PCH was in town. I then told the guy on the phone that the officer would like to talk to him. That is when the call ended. I did not give him any information on my bank account or sss# but I did tell him what kind of car I would be driving. I called the bank just to make sure no one could get into my acct. and I called ATT Wireless to make sure no one could put a charge on my phone. I am just having a hard time understanding how they were going to benefit without any money order #s or security information. Were they waiting for me? Oh well, I have a shot gun and a revolver I am not afraid to use and know how to use. Oh yeah, since when does the IRS collect a State Tax.
Sid said: Claimed to be from Publishers Clearing House, stating I had won a prize, and had to call them back right away to confirm. This was yesterday, 12/02/2014. I tried to keep the guy on the phone answering questions for no other reason than to at least incur charges on their end. When I didn't call, they tried again a couple of times, then appeared to give up.
wrangler said: I got a call form this number at 6 am. it was a recorded girl voice saying "My name is Ash*ta. I'm 21 years old and so. Call me back on this number." When I called some girl picked up the phone and said" Gud morning my name is Priti. I'm from Kolkata. I like to talk to you and so." I told her not to call again and disconnected.
I think they are fooling boys to talk as long as possible to earn money as it seems to be a highly chargeable number.

The 876 area code has been linked to a form of telephone fraud known as the "one ring scam". The person perpetuating the scam calls the victim via a robodialer or similar means, sometimes at odd hours of the night, then hangs up when the phone is answered with the hope that they will be curious enough to call the number back. When the victim does this, an automatic $19.95 international call fee is charged to their account, as well as $9.00/min thereafter. Similar scams have been linked to Grenada (area code 473), Antigua (area code 268), the Dominican Republic (area code 809) and the British Virgin Islands (area code 284)
