Subject: Just an FYI... the Jamaican scammers are out and about... (more)

Message: just received a call on my cellphone from Jamaica (876) by a scam operator posing as a rep from the Publishers Clearing House. I kept him on the line for about 15 minutes. He told me they were going to deliver a $1.7M cashiers check and a 2018 Lincoln CAR. He gave me a bunch of numbers that I'd need to claim the prize when the 'prize patrol' showed up at the house. Then he needed some info so he could file it with the Treasury Dept (where the check was being held). I pretty much knew it to be a scam when he identified as PCH. They don't call!!!! When he started talking about $8000 'tax fee' to release the check.... welll.... called him "bogus" and hung up. Next call was to the FTC (800 number on their website) and filed a complaint.

Let the robocalling begin!!!!!!!
