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)

Dee said: Male caller stating he was from Publisher's Clearing House and I was a winner of a Mercedes Benz and a certified check (did not state the amt.) and was to be delivered today. He asked if anyone had notified me of this prior to his call to which I ssaid "no, not until you called". He hung up. I think he realized I was on to him and was scared off.
Name said: These idiots claimed they were with Publisher Clearing House (PCH). They tell you that you have won a large sum of money and possibly a car and ask for your name and address. (you can barely understand them first of all) These guys weren't very smart about it. They had a flipping dog barking in the background while trying to retrieve my information! After we called their bluff and called the sheriff's department and let them know that we called, they panicked and began cussing us out. Like I said they're idiots and scam artists (I guess you can't call them artists because they are so stupid)..... DON'T FALL FOR THIS!!!!
anonymous said: Don't know who it was but they called asking for check numbers and saying they would send $500. They didnt say who they were.
anonymous said: A guy in a thick foreign accent said that I have won 2.5 thousand dollars or something and that he was calling from the UPS in my state. I asked him why and he explained that he got my number from a list of numbers and I was selected as the winner and that I needed to confirm and they will deliver it or something. He didn't state his name or the name of the grant. I'm still confused.
