Publisher's Clearing House Never Calls (Betty Sexton)

Don't ever pay a fee with the hope of winning a prize. Thanks to Gloria who called and told us about this scam that keeps resurfacing.

Don't ever pay a fee with the hope of winning a prize. Thanks to Gloria who called and told us about this scam that keeps resurfacing.

Gloria was told she had won $100,000 from Publisher's Clearing House. She was first asked to wire $400 to collect her winnings. When that got nowhere she was asked for a $200 check.

Gloria smelled a rat and hung up... but now the crooks keep calling and calling and calling.

Two important point. You never have to pay Publisher's if you win. And their workers never notify winners by phone. Publisher's notifies winners two ways... by mail or by showing up in person.

If you're unsure about the authenticity of a call, hang up, and call the group yourself. Publisher's Clearing House can be reached at 1-877-3SWEEPS which is 1-877-379-3377.

Crooks impersonate Publisher's all the time. Don't let them catch you with your guard down.
