    $0.00Unresolved

    Email to claim 2 million. Donation from Mr. and Mrs. Large, from Nova Scotia. I was to pay for registration and clearance. He has been reported over 5000 times. He is now using Microsoft. Emails are from Hotmail and g mail. How is he still operating? Somebody needs to throw this guy in jail and lose the key. I didn't give him any money but he now has my address and phone number. He is a Nigerian. Very convincing.

  • Texaco Fee Funds for help.

    $0.00Unresolved

    Someone who I had befriended told me about a charity that Texaco is doing and it's called " Texaco fee funds. For example, I said I could use $50,000.00 to pay this months rent and payoff all of our other bills. I was told that I would have to pay a $550 fee for shipping costs! My Wife and I could really use that money, however, this sounds like a scam to me!

  • My Bad No Show Lottery Winnings

    $561.60Unresolved

    Almost 3 weeks ago I got a message that I had won $500,000.00. I had to send $500 for shipping. (My bill money.) I followed instructions and sent it. Next I was messaged about sending $850.00 for an. ambassedor spot. I have not been out right threatened but veiled threats about my winnings. I have sent the initial $500. I was told not to tell anyone due to 'double claiming' Someone else getting my money. Contacted today about a possible deposit to my bank account to wire to the unfortunate and motherless children. THEN my prize money will be released!
    I have the best plans for the money. My trailer has been sold for back taxes so a stable place to live. Pay off my bbrother's funeral. (He passed away March 22). Pay off my bills that were ignored when I sent the $500.

  • Scammer for enjoyment

    $0.00Unresolved

    Amanda Class called to inform me I was a cash winner and since she did not ask me for any money to send her and the way she was explaining it to me how a Robert Parker who works with the government would be the who be sending me a register check, all I had to do is call him at 202-803-6721. The only thing she asked me for was my date of birth and to confirm my address. Not thinking I gave it to her, then later I realized that may have been a mistake.

Dont believe none of those sweepstakes!- its all a scam!- especially the more popular one!- publishers clearing house!!! Its nothing but a fraud! Their scratchouts are bogus! I scratched off 30,00.00 $ just to be told- u didn't win yet!- only if we pick your number! If not u get nothing!- that's fake! If it was the real one or the lottery I would have gotten my money! Shame on them for wasting my time! But never again! Pch.com avoid it!!!!
