I received in the mail an envelope that reads in the window "Pay to the order of" making it look as though it was
a check. Which out of curiosity, since I had recently entered the real Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes, I opened to see what it was. Well, there were 6 vouchers each for $400.00 and a letter stating that I have been issued these vouchers in the Ten Million Dollar Sweepstakes Clearinghouse Giveaway. Then it goes on to tell me to simply sign the back of each voucher for the merchandise I wish ti receive and fill in the claim form area. and the remaining balance may be paid by money order, personal check or credit/debit card. also, you could use their lay-away plan by paying $10 down then $10 per month ($25 if the remaining bal. was over $200).
I was hesitant, but stupidly sent 2 money orders (1 for $10 towards the camcorder, & 1 for $25 toward a laptop) along with my debit card information for the future monthly payments. They took the money out of my account for a few months, then suddenly stopped. I than really began to wonder, but could not find the letter and m.o. receipts until today july 26,2011. This began in April,2011 and of course I couldn't get up with the company as there was no phone number or web address, bringing me to do an online search. So here I sit filing this report hoping for some answers. I am a 54 disabled woman on a fixed income and cannot afford this. Thankyou, I hope
at least this will put a stop to this scamming company stealing peoples hard earned money & savings!!!
