Complaint Review: Consumer Clearing House
Consumer Clearing House Exactly the same things happened to me today. I was told that I had won $500,000 and that my husband had to be on the line t hear of my good luck. The taxes information was all the same, but before she got to the we pay them $4,000 part, the line gave a busy signal. I was unable to call them back, and I'm grateful I was spared wasting any more of my time. Nationwide
I received a call this morning congratulating me that I had won second prize in an international sweepstakes (whch I didn't know I had entered!). It all sounded very ligitimate. The caller assured me that he didn't want any of my personal information but that my husband had to be on the line also to be informed of my huge winnings. We arranged everything as instructed, and the agent called me at home. We were supposedly switched to a managing attorney who explained that normally our taxes would be $216,000, but their attorneys would be able to reduce our taxes to only $65,000. She asked if I had called the U. S. Lottery and Gaming Commission to verify my winnings, (which I had not). She said she would give the number later. The money would be coming from HSIB (Hong King Shanghia International Bank). I would receive the check via courier two days later. She said that her secretary had just entered the room, and she put me on hold. Then the phone started giving a busy signal. Fortunately I was spared the rest of te scam pitch. I was unable to call back the number on my phone that was in Indiana.
I am grateful for this web site that enbaled me to learn I had been scammed.
