#1 Consumer Comment

PCH Is it real or Fraud

AUTHOR: Taleathia - (U.S.A.)

I received a letter with PCH on the letterhead stating I had won $1mil along with a check from Baking Company out of Baltimore MD drawn on Bank of America for $5779, who stated according to the routing and account there was an account. So I took a zerox copy of the check for my records and saw the word VOID on the copy but could not be seen by the naked eye. However after calling PCH I was told it was a scam. They would send a certified letter or the PCH truck. How did they get my information? Is PCH selling their mailing list.

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Hot tell real from a fake PCH or a PCH scam

AUTHOR: Frank - (U.S.A.)

There is one thing PCH is in business for. TO SELL stuff.

1) if you get a check with a PCH. (read carefully).
some will have a fake bank(that is a scam)

2) a fake looking check (on the back says "THIS IS NOT A CHECK"

Today's computers, anyone can fake a letter from PCH or any other company to make it look real.

If the letter states to send money back ASAP THAT'S THE SCAM.

When you do or if you do win, the taxes are taken from the winnings after you sign a taxation of winnings form.

So do NOT advance any money even if they say "YOUR A WINNER" because you will become the loser.

Advance fees are not allowed in any winnings. Not too sure about Canada or other countries. But the USA states that We can not win a out of the country lottery if you never went to that country. It is illegal for you to get a ticket without being in person from another country.

If you every have a Advance FEE check, call the bank that is on the check, but do some research and check the phone number. Use google.com or searchgateway.com reverse search to confirm the number matches the bank.

the scam artists use one banks routing number and another bank account number(stolen from someone else they scam) to make it look real. but in 14 days you would owe a lot of money to the bank. if the check is around $4,000 you would owe around $6,000 and maybe get arrested for cashing bad checks.
