Consumer Clearing House Tried to Scam me out of $2000.00 Philadelphia Pennsylvania
I received a phone call at 11:00AM telling me i had won $500,000 in the Consumers Clearing House Lottery.  I was skeptical, but I listened.  It sounded legitimate as I listened more.  They had my wife get on the line.   Advertisement: Replay Ad Ads by ZINC   After much conversation, they told us we would have to come up with the taxes on the $500K, which would be about $6,500, but, because he was able to negotiate for us, all we would need to pay was $2000.00.  I was told that the US customs service was holding the check until the taxes were paid. The person on the phone claimed to be the senior attorney hired by the  Consumer CLearing House.  He told me to call the US Lottery & Gaming Commision  at 888-337-0322 to vartify that I wsa the winner. He told me to give them claim # T4389372. He said he would call back in 45 minutes to give me time to varify  the information. I checked the internet for fraud information and found that this was a scam. I did not call the 888 number to varify nor did the attorney call me back.

Consumer Clearing House, Readers Digest Clearing House Second Prize $500,000.dollar Winner needs to send retainer of $5,000. for Duty tax. Montreal Other
Howard Goldstein from Goldstein & assoc. called to let me know they had a check in my name for $5000,000. and that I was being contacted in order to pay a retainer fee for Duty Tax in the sum of 5,000. and needed to pay immediately so they could send World Wide Security out to my home within the next 48 hours. Not to tell anyone because I could become a victim of home invasion. They would escort me to the bank for the deposit so they could assure me of my winnings, all I needed was a valid proof of identification. Sure enough they have tried to reach me 10 times after I told them I needed to share my good news with my husband and let him know that I needed to withdrawl the funds for tax. I didn't! I got online and found the phone scam in several different locations and called every tv station and radio station to alert others. Don't get fooled- Never pay Taxes on a prize you haven't won yet.

First Nations Clearing House; Fortune 500 Companies Consumers Rewards Program sent a letter notifying me that I had a price on hold Ripoff Newark Delaware
I received a letter in the mail with a Canadian postmark informing me that that I had a price on hold for $70,000 as a winner of the Fortune 500 Consumers Rewards program. There was a required processing fee of $3000. They inclosed a check from Waldenbooks for $3240 to enable me to pay this fee. The funds from this check were on hold until I called David Holmes @ 1-204-887-5834 for further directives. As this is obviously a scam, I have saved the letter to report to the postal service.

Publishers Clearing House Internet
 I received a letter from Publishers Clearing House stating that I was a $10,000.00 dollar prize also included in the letter was a card stating do not lose this card give to the prize patrol when they ask for it 5o get a bonus $5,000.00 dollar bonus. On Saturday I received an email from PCH .which was title we apologize for some inaccurate information, we noticed early this morning that your name was entered inaccurately as a winner and the actual winner is from as San Jose California but they appreciate their VIP customers so they are going to put my name in for 5x entry for a different sweeptake. This needs to be addressed because Publishers Clearing House is getting people's hopes up and then turning around and saying Oops were sorry! This is so unfair to customers that they say they appreciate so much and are very important to them. I will not be buying,playing, or entering anymore sweepstakes with Publishers Clearing House in the future.

Royal City Clearing House; North American Consumer Sweepstakes Notified that I was a winner of the North American Consumers Sweepstakes Markham Ontario
I received a notification that I had won the BC Lottery Sweepstakes held on 11/15/2008. The letter included a check on M&T Bank in the amount of US$4,950 which has been deducted automatically to pay off the associated taxes associated to the winning... They require me to send US$3,950 through Money Gram or Western Union and to call the claim's attorney Pami Dukes at 1-416-877-5318 or send an e-mail to to immediately resume the process of acquiring the winning price instead of prize. The check looks authentic and looks like it comes from a legitimate bank. I'm sure this scam would be very successful with some people as they think they can deposit the money, pay back a portion of it, and would therefore not be out any cash.

Sweepstake Clearing House ripoff Dallas Texas
I recieved a vocher in the mail for $300 which I used towards the purchase of a set of luggage. I set a check in the amount of $49.00 to cover the remaining amount not covered by the voucher. The package is at UPS with a COD bill for 41.67. I called Sweepstake Clearing house about the pending COD billing and was told it was for the cost of shipping. It was not clearly stated in the offering that additional billing for shipping was include unless it was small print. I wanted to cancel the order but was told that the amount would be deducted from the shipping cost. For over $90 I could have puchased the item at the store. This is a big rip off Sweepstake Clearing house clearly stated the amount that was needed to process the order but hide the information about the shipping costs. Chris Aldan, PennsylvaniaU.S.A.

Sweepstakes Clearing House ripoff Dallas Dallas Texas
In July of 2005, I sent a $25.00 check to Sweepstakes Clearing House for an IBM Laptop Computer. I read everything and thought that once they received my check they would send the merchandise. I received nothing. I saw that my check was cleared so I knew they got the money. Then in September, I received a letter from Sweepstakes Clearing House stating that they did not receive my check and that as soon as I sent it I would have my merchandised mailed to me immediately. I wrote them stating I already sent them a check. Now it's October 2005, still no laptop. I give them a call, and to my surprise, they claim they do have my check but are charging me $4.00 late fee!! Also, I just found out they I don't receive my computer until the $500 is paid in full. At $25/per month, I won't see that computer until 2 years from now! When I realized this, I asked for a refund of my $25 and customer service denied me. I told them I felt I was misled with their payment process and told them I would file a complaint with the Illinois Attorney General's Office. They told me to go ahead and do it but I was basically screwed out of my money. What a RIP-OFF!! They should have refunded my money. I am not getting the computer, I asked them to cancel my order. If anyone can help me get my money back and also help others to not make the same mistake as me. I really hate being cheated. Cathy Bensenville, IllinoisU.S.A.

Publisher's Clearing House ripoff Chicago Internet
We ordered a magazine through the Publisher's Clearing House network and never got the magazine. And after a while we contacted the frauds by mail to an address in Washington D.C. We didn't have internet service at the time. Now we do. First thing we did was to contact PCH again and we got an answer right away. But the answer was to tell us that our refund was going to be cut 50%. In other words, if we paid $20 for the subscription, the refund is only $10. So what's up with that? No explanation from PCH. Just take it or leave it and this doesn't square with their return policy on their website. They are totally a bunch of thieves. Who do they think they are? Never again.

For some odd reason I started getting these Glamour magazine in the mail. I didn't open it up. The next month I received another one and this one came with a bill. I called them and told them I wanted to find out why I was recieving these two magazines. They told me that I had sent them a email stating that I wanted these magazine. I don't like magazine at all. They never have anything in there that is interesting. And another thing I don't own any credit cards everything I come to on the net has CREDIT CARDS INFO. Now I asked the lady if there was a way to get off of this magazine scam and she told me to send back the magazines and she would take off the amount. Now why am I still get the bills and the magazines keep rolling in month after month? Tell me what is wrong with these customer service people these days.

Were do I start. After receiving what I thought to be a great deal on a computer and luggage, I come to find out today that I have to pay $136 for shipping and handing of the computer alone, then another $43 for the luggage. I was not aware that I had to pay for shipping and handling at all but apart from that they also say that it will be shipped out promtly. I know where I come from promptly means within a short period of time, not a month after they have taken the money out of my account. Then when I confronted them about the shipping and handling fee, they informed me that I can refuse the package but to before they return my money the shipping and handling will be taken out of my refund, so I have to pay for it whether I take the merchandise or not. And basically there is nothing I can do about it. If they tell you its too good to be true then it really is. Mandy Yonkers, New YorkU.S.A.
