Caller type: Scammer/Fraudster

Caller Id was unknown, they said that my visa or MasterCard was picked and entered me to recieve a diamond watch and three year mag subscription free. It was odd because she did not know what card I used and for one I never entered anything and I don't have a credit card for in store she then said then it was my debit card.
She had my name and home number along with my address.
Said that she strongly believed I would win the 25,000 cash draw
I told her that the info she had was correct (sadly) and how she had it, claiming my bank gave them. My bank is super secure and never give info out.
She needed my credit card number and I said that I was not giving it out over the phone. She tried to talk me into it for the magazines and I cut her off and said I was not giving it out as someone tried to scam me then she hung up.
I reported it. Make sure you get equifax to put a flag on your info so no one can use it against you
And I live in Canada!

Said I had been drawn in a sweepstakes. Never entered. Said it was due to good credit rating. Had my correct name spelling and address. I did not confirm. When I said I was uncomfortable to hear personal information from an unknown caller, they hung up saying they would move to the "next name" on the list.

When I answered he asked for me by name and said I might want to sit down because I had won a sweepstakes of $5,000. He said my name was submitted by one of my credit card companies, either Mastercard or Visa. He then asked me which one I thought I used the most. When I didn't respond he asked if I was alright and I said I knew they weren't going to give me any money but I was just listening. At that point the call was disconnected.

The caller asked for someone and I explained that they keep calling me about this person. I told the female caller that I need to be removed from their list. The female caller said "I'm sorry" and hung up.

(Laura) Called saying I had been entered to win $25,000 and that they were sending a diamond watch in the mail at no charge. First red flag. Asked if I'd like a men's or ladies watch to determine the gender on my accounts. Asked my address and while I was giving it to them they confirmed details about it I hadn't given yet. That was my second red flag. Said I would receive a magazine subscription for 24 months, free of charge and a second subscription for 60 months at "only $4.33 a week". I asked if I could opt out of that and she glazed over my question and told me I'd get and opportunity to speak to her supervisor. Before sending me off she asked a survey question of which credit card company gives the best customer service, to which I answered Discover, whose cards I do not carry, because this is likely a fishing question to find what company I bank with. Her "Supervisor" got on the line with a strong southern accent and went over the products with me, when he got to the paid subscription he asked to verify my expiration date on my card, information that a scammer wouldn't be able to possess. I told him I did not want to pay and could not afford the $4.33 a week but I would take the free stuff if he'd like to send it to me. He told me he could fish $4.33 out of his couch. I told him sorry, but no. And he said "Can't afford $4.33 a week, well good luck with your life then." And I hung up on him.

Got a call from an unknown number. Knew my first name and city I lived in. Same approach as other comments. "Won 25 grand, sending a diamond watch, 3 year free magazines" I entertained the call and as I started asking more detailed question about the business the caller disclosed only a few things before hanging up. I asked where the company was based out of and she said Montreal, I asked where she was calling from and she said the United States. Upon asking what state she replied "one of the sunshine states". I asked if she could disclose which one and she said she didn't know if she could and then the call was disconnected. Funny thing, I don't own or use a CC... any who they did say it was due to me paying bills on time, but couldn't confirm which bills or company, said they were not allowed access to that information. Smells fishy.

I live in Canada, a caller from Florida was telling me that he was letting me know my name was entered into a sweepstakes for $25K. I told him I was not interested, I never entered anything, that I was a reporter and that he had better take my number off the list, and if it was for "Canadian" entrants, he would have not been able to call me as I am registered on the Do Not Call List with the Government of Canada. After me demanding he take me off the list, he hung up. What a d**k. Why would a scammer argue? Honestly, he needs to get his GED, and then maybe technical school, if he's capable, and find a great job that doesn't rip people off. I don't know how these people can live with themselves. I'm sure his parents are very proud.

Received a call at 5:33 pm when I was away from home. Checked my voicemail from my cell phone to hear."Please don't tell me my bleeping phone ain't working." My child often times checks voicemail, so that was unsettling. When I called the number back I could tell it was the same guy who left the voicemail. When I mentioned the voicemail he said no one would have done that and hung up. I called back and was told to call back in 15 minutes and was hung up again. Called again to get a somewhat decent human being who gave me the number to customer service. They removed me from their "sweepstakes" that i never entered and said they would pull the call address the issue of the man cursing in my voicemail. We shall see... Do not answer any call from this number.

Sat 10/8/16, I got a call from 1-877-364-8433 and asked for me by my first name then said they are from Publisher's Award Center. I said "not interested" and hung up. Being that I had been duped by similar outfits in paying $1500 for 3 years of magazines I will never read and am not interested in...and that money is forever gone..I don't want to purchase another publication of any kind again just to enter for a prize EVER again! Also to consider this: Any time one hears the word "Publisher" they may erroneously think Publisher's Clearing House and may get duped that way. All avid PCH entrants PLEASE BEWARE! If they don't specifically identify themselves as Publisher's Clearing House, then they are not.

Tony Morgan, Sr. Awards Director with Publishers Sweepstakes, called to CONGRATULATE me for WINNING the early bird GRAND PRIZE drawing of $5,000. Said it was due to my excellent credit history with VISA and Mastercard. Kept saying, that because of my excellent credit, "Publishers" was expecting me to do very well. Then said something about entering me into a drawing. Asked which magazine I would prefer, Redbook or Rolling Time Magazine. When I said I had no interest in receiving any magazines. He hung up. What a scam!! BLOCK THIS CALLER!!

They called with a unknown number claiming I have won 25,000$ in sweepstakes. They have called me not from my phone, but from my girlfriends mothers home phone. I never use it. I don't live there. OMG. They knew my first and last name but I was asked for my birthday information to receive my winning. So I asked before I give my information, May I ask a couple questions?. She replied Listen, Listen, Listen and I laughed, and they hanged up. They said they were in America, and they got my name from visa or master-card. In which I don't own either. This is very serious, the man in black suit should be on these peoples. They are terrorists to me, my family, my child, the food in my fridge, and to my fellow humans. Talk to your phone company, they can help. Threaten to cancel the service and they would help. have a good day. Keep your smile big. Be happy.

Called me stating I had won $5,000 because we pay our credit card on time. Asked me what my address was and what year I was born so they could mail the prize to me (I unfortunately gave it). They then said that the publishers felt strongly that I would win some grand prize and, because of that, asked if I would help them out by purchasing some "favorite" magazine for the low price of $2.99. When I said I did not want the magazine, I heard "Okay -click" and they were gone.

it rings 1 or 2 times on my cell phone as late as 930 pm. I cannot answer quick enough to even find out what they want ...never anyone there. IF I could block it on my cell phone I would. Its very annoying because they call sometime 3-7 times a day and always at least 2-3 days out of the week. No special days.
