Approximately 10/20/2017, I was contacted by a "Dwayne Martini", saying that through PCH I had won $8.5 Million plus a Kia Sorrento (Really??? Out of all of the luxury vehicles, I get a KIA????)

Anyways, going back and forth for a couple of weeks, I tell him that I am not mailing any money anywhere. But, if he could get someone's bank account info, along with the routing number, the account holder's name and address, that I would deposit the money directly into the account. With the routing number and the account holder's name and address, I was able to track down the specific branch. So, I called up the branch, spoke with the manager, and I let them know that clients of theirs may have been compromised. And, so, the banks froze the accounts.

Now he sends his 'Manager', "Bill Jones. Mr. Jones was also calling from a Jamaican phone number. But, he insists that the company that he works for is based out of Queens, NY. And he was trying to B.S. me that he was calling me from Tampa, Fl. But, he couldn't remember what main highways run through the Tampa Bay Area of Florida!!!

Point is this: If you DID win anything from Publishers Clearing House of that size, they would NOT CALL YOU IN ADVANCE!!! That's the whole thing about PCH, they surprise the winner's at their front door. With roses, balloons, cameras, and a supersized check. And, if there are any taxes due on the winnings, they take it directly out of the check.

So, if ANYONE calls you saying that you have won ANYTHING, but the only way to receive this prize is by paying the taxes up front: HANG UP THE PHONE AND BLOCK THEIR NUMBER!!! Because, it is a scam.
