Publishers Direct Sweepstakes
Publishers Direct Sweepstakes
30th of Jan, 2011 by
Almost got us ! Got a call 1/27/11, from Charles Smith @1-866-978-6768 asking for my significant other, who was not available at the time, ask for him to return call that he was the 2nd Prize Winner with Publishers Direct Sweepstakes. He return the call this morning, 1/31/11, and was told by Charles Smith that he had won $285,000.00 & that 2 FBI Agents would be at our house tomorrow between 1-2pm with a Certified Check in the prize amount plus a 1099 to show that the taxes had been paid & a second check for $2,850 1% insurance fee which would be also reimbursed when the Agents arrived. Call 1-702-425-9301 with the Security Code #PD2515 for verification of prize & instructions of sending the $2,850.00 Cash by Western Union which also would be a $160-200 charge to send this wired money. While typing this report...I received another call from Charles Smith in Wasington DC asking how things were going....well I guess you can imaging what I told him. He told me that he was legit & that Publishers Direct was connected with Publishers Clearing House.

JOHN FULLER JUST CALLED ASKING FOR A LINDA ENGLISH- NOT MY NAME AND I HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF A LINDA. I HAVE RECEIVED CALLS FOR LINDA ENGLISH BEFORE AND JUST HUNG UP. EVEN THOUGH LINDA HAD WON 2.5 MILLION DOLLARS AND A BRAND NEW MERCEDES BENZ, SUDDNELY BY MAGIC, I HAD BEEN AWARDED THE FIRST PLACE PRIZE, WHICH MR. FULLER WAS GOING TO DELIVER TODAY. HE WAS GOING TO FLY OUT FROM NEVADA, PURCHASE THE CAR IN ROCKPORT INDIANA, WHICH IS ABOUT 5 HOURS FROM MY HOME AND DELIVER THE CAR ON A TRUCK TO ME TODAY. BUT I HAD TO PAY FOR THE DELIVERY CHARGE OF $1, 500. I TOLD HIM THERE WAS NO NEED TO DO THAT BECAUSE I COULD GO TO LAS VEGAS BECAUSE I HAVE A CONFERENCE OUT THERE NEXT WEEK, AND I COULD PICK UP THE CAR AND MONEY NEXT WEEK. HE SAID I DID NOT UNDERSTAND. HE WOULD BRING THE CERTIFIED CHECK, ALONG WITH 2 FBI AGENTS, AND DELIVER EVERYTHING TODAY. I HAD TO GO TO THE BANK AND GET 1, 500 DOLLARS CASH AND THEN CALL HIM, AND HE WOULD THEN GET ON HIS PRIVATE JET, BUT HE ALSO WANTED ME TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO A CHARITY. I SUGGESTED THE GOVERNMENT BUT HE SAID I COULD NOT DO THAT. IT HAD TO BE A CHARITY. I ASKED HIM ABOUT THE FBI, I SAID I DID NOT THINK THE FBI SPENT THEIR TIME ESCORTING PEOPLE TO DELIVER PRIZE MONEY. HE SAID IT WAS THE COMPANY'S OWN FBI. I ASKED WHAT THEIR FBI STOOD FOR. HE SAID FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION. NOW I WAS QUIETLY SMILING. HE WAS GETTING MORE ANNOYED WITH ME. BUT I KEPT COOL. AS HE CONTINUED IN HIS ACCENTED ENGLISH- NOT SURE IF IT WAS A PAKISTANI OR INDIAN LIKE ACCENT, I ASKED HIM IF HE KNEW WHERE I LIVED, HE SAID NO. I ASKED HIM WHAT LINDA MIGHT THINK IF SHE FOUND I THAT I GOT HER PRIZE AND HE TRIED TO EXPLAIN THERE WAS AN ERROR BUT THAT I WAS THE FIRST PLACE PRIZE WINNER, AND THAT THEY HAD TWO OTHERS IN INDIANA THAT THEY HAD TO DELIVER THEIR MONIES AND CAR TO TODAY. AGAIN PRESSING ME TO GO TO THE BANK AND CALL HIM WHEN I HAD THE CASH. HIS PHONE NUMBER WAS 702-516-4037 OR HIS CELL PHONE 870-687-7800. I ASK HIM TO COME AND I COULD ARRANGE FOR THE LOCAL NEWSPAPER TO TAKE OUR PICTURE AND PROMOTE HIS GOOD SWEEPSTAKES.
HE RELUCTANTLY SAID OK, BUT THEN STARTED BACKING AWAY SENSING THAT I WAS HAVING MORE FUN WITH HIM THAN HE WAS HAVING SUCCESS IN GETTING MY MONEY. WHILE LISTENING TO HIM I GOOGLE THIS GUY AND FOUND NUMEROUS SITES INDICATING THAT THIS GUY IS A TRUE SCAMMER, AND WANTED TO PASS ALONG THE WARNING. HE CLOSED BY THANKING ME FOR WASTING HIS TIME AND MAKING HIM LATE FOR THE JET PLANE. I CORDIALLY THANKED HIM FOR THE ENTERTAINING PHONE CALL. PEOPLE BEWARE OF JOHN FULLER, JOHN OWENS, OR LINDA ENGLISH. JUST SMILE AND REPORT HIM TO THE LOCAL BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU.
