Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster
I just got scammed by 516-506-0055 "Vanessa Brown" at "Publishers Clearning House" saying I had won $650,000. I was not asked to give any personal information other than an address. They said they would fed ex deliver my prize package tomorrow between the hours of 10am-2pm.
I just called Publisher's Clearing House and they verified that I did not win $650,000. HA! They said they NEVER call or mail a person to announce a win. They show up at a person's doorstep/hospital bed etc. etc. whatever it takes to find the person unannounced because a major part of it is the surprise element. I am sickened by the cruelty of this hoax and don't understand the point. They didn't even ask for information.
