phishing said: I won $980,000 and a Mercedez Benz and I didn't even have to sign up for anything! B.S.
A guy with an accent similar to Jamaican called me and told me I won this and that he worked for Publishers Clearing House. Of course I was completely skeptical from the very beginning because I didn't sign up for any drawings and I haven't done the PCH thing in like 15 years (phone number has changed since then). After sharing my skepticism the man said he'd transfer me to his boss, mind you the whole time I could hear in the background squeaky doors, other people chatting (not your normal office sounds). At this point I wanted to hear this thing out because I've actually never been scammed before lol. His "boss" got on the phone and insisted that I was the 2nd place winner. He asked if I was at home or at work. I said at work. He asked where I worked. I just said for a company. Then I asked him where his company was. He said "from the Las Vegas Nevada". I'm from WI and even I know damn well that people just call it Vegas. Then he asked if I could talk to my boss and get off of work so he could deliver my check and my car to me today. I asked if it had to be at my house. He said either my house or at my bank. Then I asked him if he could send me his credentials. That's when he hung up lol.
Savvy said: Some jerk with a stupid accent calls and says I won 3 million dollars from the IGB and asks for personal information or send $360 through western union to register. When I questioned this idiot about giving personal info he started using the "F" word and yelling and insutling me. If you call this number 1-876-546-7214 you can talk to this jerk (he said his name is johnny)and mess with him, (he actually answered the phone when I called), Caller ID says its from Jamaica but he insisted he was calling from Washington state. Total scammer and not too smart either.
Unknown said: Caller said," You are a lucky winner, you won 4000, 00 dollars. Ups will be at your door and all you have to show is ID." Sounds like a scam and scary if they show at your house. The man had an accent and gave me his name, possibly false.

anonymous said: Male party seemed to have been disguise his voice with a foreign accent! Party used profanity and yelled when I told him my dad did not enter PCH sweepstake or any other sweepstakes! Very rude and I told him I got his number and will report him and he swore again so I hung up after telling him don't ever call back again!
Chuck said: I received a call stating I won 2.6 millon dollars and a Mercedes benz. the man with a weird accent asked if I wanted to receive it today or if I wanted to give it to someone else.
Gary said: Same as above, John Peterson, claiming I won a secondary prize of 350,000, and a 2015 Mercedes. When asked how they got the number he stated that It was from walmart, cvs, kamart, when I go shopping. Mine is a private number and is not given to any establishment. After informing him of this he hung up. time of call was September 8th at 18:27. call originated in jamaca.

Eric said: keepscalling asking for James who is the person who had the number before me. When I say you have the wrong number they said "f*ck you you dumb mother f*cker" No lie that is the exactly wording that he said. I can't wait for them to call back

Sudip said: I got this call from +18766480805 at 00:55 Hrs on 21/7/2015. Since I am trying for a job change-over including abroad assignments, this call could have had been from an employer whom I might have applied for such jobs through employment portals. However, I did not receive the call as I apprehended this to be a fake call. All such people who are expecting calls related to jobs from abroad are hereby advised NOT TO RESPOND TO SUCH CALLS FOR THE 1ST TIME. Pls keep in mind that such employers will contact you first through mail, disclose their identity with phone numbers and then you call them subject to verification of such number like sending messages thru websites, return mails etc.BE CAREFUL GUYS!!
