Publishers Sweepstakes Commission Inc. Received Letter, had questions after seeing news of woman in similar situation that got scammed. Yonkers New York
*Author of original report: Publishers Sweepstakes Commission Inc.
Was initially excited, but then skeptical as these things don't happen to people like me. Called Readers Digest as their name appeared in the letter.
After three days of research they returned email message saying it was not one of theirs.
Proceeded to call numbers in letter given and received only one word upon connecting "Good-Bye". Tried to call the IRS number given of 1-514-583-6458(Canadian number)to get validation/verification number and got a male voice saying that I had reached the offices of the IRS and their hours of operation, that I was to leave a detailed message and would be contacted by an agent as soon as possible. I left my name, phone number and the claim number. Never heard back from them to this date.
Reporting to you as this is my first run in with a scam and I don't want to go through the ups and downs again. It is also good to note your site was the only one to tell of this and I wanted to contribute my two cents worth to help others. It has taken me over a week to find out, my time of claiming prize was running low and I wanted to make sure I had really done all I could to make a legitimate claim or a scam complete. I am glad I did not get the latter!
