Global International Scam

Thanks for stopping by to read my Global International Review

Last year in the US, over 70 billion dollars was spent on lottery tickets. An estimated 97 million people pouring their hard earned money into their hopes and dreams. We all have hopes and dreams, which is why companies like Global International Lottery and Sweepstakes prey upon them. Some might even call them a scam.

But are they really a scam? In this review I'm going to over who Global International is, what they do and of course, reveal some red flags to determine if they're legit or as many would suspect, a scam. 

Please note, I am not a member or an affiliate for Global International. This review has been researched with information and/or testimonials that are available online in the public domain. Any recommendations and/or conclusions are strictly opinions and may not to apply to, or agree with, all persons or situations. See full disclaimer for more info

What Is Global International?

As their name indicates, Global International is a lottery and sweepstakes company. Details are difficult to come by, which is reason enough to suspect they are a scam.

Some sources say they are located in Kingston, Jamaica… but I’m pretty sure they may be confusing Global International Lottery with Global Insight International, which is a company that has provided cultural travel exchanges and internships for 50 years.

The Global International we’re talking about is the Lottery and Sweepstakes one, which is registered in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Is Global International a Scam?

Global Internaional Scam

Based on complaints going back nearly a decade, in my opinion, Global International is about as shady as they come. I don’t typically accuse businesses of being a flat-out scam… but I see no evidence to suggest they are not. 

Let’s state the obvious first. What are the chances of winning a lottery that you didn’t even buy a ticket for?

Statistically speaking, you’re more likely  to be struck by lightning a couple hundred times, or even get killed by an asteroid, than you are to win the lottery (at least the big one). And that’s when you DO buy a ticket.

If you didn’t even play, and yet someone is contacting you about the jackpot you won… well, you’re probably thinking it’s a scam. Which is why you’re reading this review.

But it’s not fair to make assumptions, so I looked a little deeper into Global International so see what was going on here.

Global International Complaints

There are countless complaints about Global International, as well as legal inquiries  and documentation.

Scambook currently has 86 complaints registered, with nearly 5 million in unresolved damages.

Scambook Global International Lottery File

But if you keep digging you’ll find many more complaints on various forums, blogs, etc.

And each one has a similar story…

The victims and targets were contacted by email, snail mail, or by phone and told they had won a cash prize and luxury car… usually a Mercedes. The cash prize ranges anywhere between 500K and several million.

And this is where the scam comes in…

To collect their big windfall, they must pay a fee, usually within a set deadline of 10 days.

The fee can be anywhere from a $20 to $30 processing fee, up to thousands of dollars. These are charges for things such as,

  • Transfer fees
  • Duty
  • Storage Costs
  • Taxes
  • Administrative Expenses

Those who have made payments to Global International, of course… never see the prize, or their money again.

Some have received checks, but when they tried to cash them they were told the checks were either fake, or worse, stolen.  

I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to be caught trying to case a stolen check.

But these claims are circumstantial, and although they're quite convincing, what about some hard evidence?

Global International – Las Vegas, Nevada – 2008

Las Vegas

Global Lottery and Sweepstakes was originally registered in 2008 at 303 Carson Ave Las Vegas, NV 89118.

2008 was also the year of the Great Recession. I don’t know if they started this prize-scam to take advantage of vulnerable people, or if 2008 is just a coincidence.

What I was really looking for, was their physical location. Most scams don’t have actual offices (at least not publicly), so I wanted to know more about 303 Carson Ave in Las Vegas.

It turns out, Global Lottery and Sweepstakes isn’t the only tenant here. You can also find Winners International Payout Services.

Global International and Winners International 303 Carson Ave Las Vegas

That’s not entirely unusual. Quite often similar businesses occupy the same building. If we continue with that logic, we can accept that another company, Mega Millions, is also a tenant.

Mega Millions 303 Carson Ave Las Vegas

All three of these businesses have a BIG problem however. The are all sharing an address that does NOT exist.

303 Carson St Las Vegas Is Not Valid Address

That should be enough to tell you that this is a scam, but if we continue to dig deeper we find more. According to a Federal Trade Commission action  against Global… Mega Millions and Winner International Payout are NOT THE ONLY names they are doing business as… or with…

The FTC action claims the defendants (of this particular action) against Global include…

  • Mail Tree Inc.
  • Michael McKay Co.
  • Spin Mail Inc.
  • MCP Marketing Activities LLC, also doing business as Magellan Mail and Magellan Marketing
  • Trans National Concepts Inc.
  • Romeria Global LLC, also d/b/a Lowenstein Varick and Nagel
  • Supreme Media LLC
  • Vernier Holdings Inc.
  • Awards Research Consultant LLC
  • Mailpro Americas Corp.
  • Masterpiece Marketing LLC, also d/b/a Affiliated Opportunities Group (AOG),
  • Corporate Accounting Authority (CAA),
  • Dispatch Notification Services (DNS),
  • Information Reporting Group (IRG),
  • National Directory Center (NDC), and
  • Priority Information Exchange (PIE)

I think it’s fair to say something isn’t quite right here. Other names they’ve been found to use are Gold Rush Sweepstakes and Global Winner International.

More Evidence and Red Flags

Some evidence, like the fake address, is plain to see…

Other times, we just need to look at indicators…

First, you can’t find an actual Global International website. What kind of million-dollar company in 2018 doesn’t have website?

At the very least they should have a social media presence.

Here’s their Facebook page…

Global International Sweepstakes and Lottery Facebook Page

That's one lonely Facebook Page. You'd think that a company known for giving away millions in cash and luxury cars would have quite the popular social media following…


Finally, and this is just something I found more amusing than actual evidence of a scam.  The names they are using when contacting people would be comical, if their lies weren't so cruel.

One person said they were speaking with Bobby Axe at Global International. For viewers of the popular TV Show Billions, you’ll know that the main character’s name is Bobby Axelrod, and he is the owner of Axe Capital.

Later I was reading a complaint by another person who said they were dealing with Mr. Michael Winters. It may just be a coincidence, but the same actor who plays Bobby Axelrod on Billions (Damien Lewis) also played the part of Major Winters in the mini-series Band of Brothers.

Some other names that sounded fake to me were James Bronson, John Washington, and Harry King. I’m sure there are more if you keep looking. On their own, there’s nothing really strange here (although James Bronson sounds like a character from a Tom Clancy novel)… but a bunch of people with last names like Winters, Axe, Washington, and King…?

I’m not buying it. Of course I could also be wrong and just making crazy connections, so to be clear… all of this is just speculation. 

Final Thoughts

In my opinion, something is not right with Global International but I'll leave the final judgement up to you.

Maybe I'm just tired of all the scams, and I bet you are too.

Rarely does a day go by that I don’t get a phone call from some kind of scam. Here (Canada) it’s been the CRA or Canada Revenue Agency scam. They call constantly. I don't even pick my phone up anymore unless I recognize the call. 

That's the world we live in today. I mean, Global International has been around awhile now but they certainly don't help the situation. 

And then you have the countless online scams.

So what can we do in a world of extreme dishonesty and thievery (is that even a word) 😀 

A few tips to keep in mind…

  • Never pay for a prize. If you've won it… you’ve won it…
  • Don’t trust any business that uses email addresses from AOL, Gmail, Yahoo, etc.
  • Check if they have an online community (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc.) Most companies do, and you can read what people are saying.
  • Do they have a website? Is there real contact information on it?
  • Confirm a physical address.

Some scams are obvious from the start, others pull you in slowly with legitimate offers, and then BAM! They hit you big once they’ve gained your trust. It never hurts to learn common strategies to avoid scams.

This prize-scam has been around since I was kid (70’s and 80’s), and it probably started long before that. Anything that’s been around for decades must work…  meaning people keep getting scammed and the scammers keep making money… so be diligent. 

And, if it's been around that long, it'll probably be here for many more years to come.

My Top Recommendation For Making Money Is Online (not the lottery)

As mentioned above, the lottery odds are not just against you. They're on a another planet, in a different Universe, that exists in a another dimension.

To truly build multiple streams of passive income and a future you love, online marketing is the undisputed king.

But, finding a legit system with all the scams out there can be a real pain. I spent years searching (and many months testing) different programs and finally found one that showed me how to earn an income from home. Click HERE for the exact strategy I followed..

I hope this review of Global International Lottery and Sweepstakes was helpful.

  1. Just spoke with agent ( Janet White…badge # 411…. & asked for her manager from “global sweepstakes” in Las Vegas…sayn thrs a certified check their holding for me…

  2. Been contacted by Jeffery Collins that I had won 8.5 Million dollars and a Mercedes Benz!
    Letter head (sent me copy of letter by email) was from MegaMillions. There were so many companies listed in the document it was had to figure out who it was from. Payment was coming from Winner’s International Payout & Processing Service, Inc. in Las Vegas.(Same address as in your article). Phone number 702 200-8536. Need to send them $3500.00 to pay for a State registry before I can get my prizes. Told him outright that I thought this was a scam. He has been calling for a week so far. He is now contacting his Board of Directors on what he needs to do since I refused to send any money. Very polished presentation. Not angry or have had any outbursts.

  3. What did you do with that information did you see it through to the point of almost paying the money or did you actually get your winnings because this is the same letter I received and although I can’t remember the man’s name he did tell me he was a Decon at his church a real man of God and so I can take his word that this is real. Now I’m shocked that these people would go so far as to use and lie to the Lord to make a buck . I’m a God fearing women who believes there’s good in people and after talking to this man today I wanted to believe in him but after reading all these reports I’m just shocked that a man of God would use God for his selfish greedy wants. Thank you for all your imput

  4. My parents have been scammed by these people for several years. The people who called were Mrs. Hickman phone #240-490-**** and a Fake FBI agent Mark Anthony Watson from Miami FL who says he works for the Jamaican FBI and the United States Government. His phone number is 876-506-****. The scam was exactly what was described above with winning a sweepstake with 2.5 million dollars, a car and a house. Unfortunately they convinced my aging and sick mother to send their life savings. This did not stop even with the death of my mother. The day after her death they starting harassing my 90 year old father for his social security check. PLEASE BE AWARE These people are EVIL !!!!

  5. Thank you for your information. I have gotten on their call list and it’s such a scam. They pick you for info like who you bank with, your date of birth, social security. Number, parents maiden name and place of birth then want you to go buy them a “vanilla gift card”. They really should be ashamed. If you tell them you can’t afford the money they require to release your package they cuss you out and say. ” F.YOU! ” VERY PROFESSIONAL HUH? I want to know why the atty. General doesn’t stop them. They prey on people that don’t know what they are getting into.

  6. Excellent info. Here is my story. My main source of telephone use is a landline. I do have a cell but it is not surgically attached. No data just call, text, and voice mail. It s a pay as u go plan. It costs me 100 per year. I started getting numerous scam calls in the voice mail, pain in the butt to have to deal with. I am not computer savvy so call block is not an option. So I decided to send them a text as texting is n/c with my plan. FU. I didn’t realize that my frustration impluse worked. It took about two weeks. It’s 3 months now and the scam calls in my voice mail is still zero.

  7. I have been contacted by a Robert A. Gates of Global International to say I have won $2,500,000. I have to pay £30,000 processing fee. Is this a scam ?

    • Without knowing all of the details, I can’t say 100% that it’s a scam. But I will say this… the statistical probability of winning any lottery, especially in the million plus dollar range and more importantly, one you probably didn’t even enter, is for all intents and purposes… zero. Add to that they want you to pay out a tens of thousands as a “processing fee” (whatever that is), and I’d say the chances that it’s a scam are in the 99.99% ballpark. That’s not fact of course, but based on lottery statistics and these particular circumstances, the probability is exceptionally high that they will take the $30,000 and you’ll never hear from them again.

      • Ok, mire yo soy un abogado de Veracruz, Ver, Mexico,
        y soy escritor, y publico una Revista
        y tengo 4 años siguiendo estos correos, claro sin mandar un solo centavo, y claro que todos son una estafa, nadie en todo el mundo le manda un mensaje a una persona o a varias, en todos los lados del mundo, ofreciendo el mismo asunto con el mismo nombre, solo cambian de apellidos, y de cantidades que ofrecen, o a veces la misma cantidad, para todo el mundo?.- esto la gente lo tiene que ver, que de donde darán dinero a tantas gentes y a cambio de que?.- y lo que pasa es que a cada uno le piden dinero para mandarles sumas millonarias, como en las loterías, que se ofrece un mismo premio, a cada uno que compre un billete, se deben poner a pensar igual, que como tendrán un premio mayor, con ese pedazo que compraron?.- y que todos al comprar un pedazo piensan lo mismo que todos, que nadie se sacara el premio mayor y que solo el que compra ese numero será el afortunado?.- Solo que nada mas fueran 10 números los que jugaran, del 1 al 10, pero son millones de números, lo que hace imposible atinarle a ese numero que compraron, pues es imposible atinarle a 6 o siete números que sacan de las tómbolas, y que forman los números que venden, solo sacan reintegros, y premios chicos, pero nunca un premio mayor. les conviene mejor, escribir un libro y venderlo a millones, y asi ser millonario, que es lo que la lotería hace y los que piden dinero a cambio de regalar millones, de eso hacen ellos millones, para ellos, ENTONCES?????? SI SUPIERAN QUE LOS QUE OFRECEN MILLONES DE REGALO A CAMBIO DE UNA COOPERACION, TIENEN HASTA AVIONES QUE RECORREN TODO EL MUNDO DONDE RECOJEN EL DINERO QUE TODA LA GENTE MANDA ESPERANDO QUE LES MANDEN ESE DINERO QUE LES OFRECEN Y QUE NUNCA LES LLEGA…

        Ok, look I am a lawyer from Veracruz, Ver, Mexico,
        and I am a writer, and I publish a Magazine
        and I have been following these emails for 4 years, of course without sending a single penny, and of course they are all a scam, no one in the whole world sends a message to one person or several, on all sides of the world, offering the same subject with the same name, they only change their surnames, and the amounts they offer, or sometimes the same amount, for everyone? People have to see this, from where will they give money to so many people and in exchange for what? – and what happens is that they ask everyone for money to send them millions of dollars, like in lotteries, where the same prize is offered, everyone who buys a ticket must think the same way, how they will have a prize largest, with that piece they bought?.- and that everyone when buying a piece thinks the same as everyone else, that no one will get the jackpot and that only the one who buys that number will be the lucky one?.- Only that there were only 10 numbers that will play, from 1 to 10, but there are millions of numbers, which makes it impossible to to hit that number they bought, because it is impossible to hit 6 or seven numbers that they draw from the raffles, and that make up the numbers they sell, they only get refunds, and small prizes, but never a jackpot. It is better for them to write a book and sell it to millions, and thus be a millionaire, which is what the lottery does and those who ask for money in exchange for giving away millions, they make millions of that, for them, THEN????? ? IF THEY KNEW THAT THOSE WHO OFFER MILLIONS OF GIFT IN EXCHANGE OF A COOPERATION, EVEN HAVE PLANES THAT TRAVEL ALL OVER THE WORLD WHERE THEY COLLECT THE MONEY THAT ALL PEOPLE SEND HOPING THAT THEY SEND THAT MONEY THAT THEY OFFER AND THAT NEVER COMES…

  8. Thanx! This article (and attached comments) was most helpful. The company’s location is Kingston, Jamaica, no mistake there. I’m thinking that the Las Vegas registration and address was, conveniently, another attempt at appearing to be a legit establishment. My telephone conversations with six different reps (four people from Publishers Clearing House, one “manager” from Bank of America, and the president of Winners Global Int’l Sweepstakes & Lottery) have spanned five weeks, and originated in Georgia, Florida, California, Maine, Tennessee, and North Carolina. The latest call was from Winners Global president, Mr. Benjamin J. Bello, who is deeply religious and appalled that I would block my blessings ($5.5M, and a 2022 Mercedes–color of my choice) by failing to wire, cash app, or Zelle $2500 to his company in the very near future. Sheesh!!!!!

    • I think he got ahold of me today it sounds like the same man said he was a his church said I was the first place winner of 17million and Mercedes said all I had to pay was 750.tomorrow for the 1percent tax that they paid the rest then I’d get my money he said he’d meet me at my bank I said ok like I’m going to meet him there and after hearing all these stories maybe I should with the police waiting with me .

  9. On Oct 2 I received a call from 516-730-4229 claiming I had received 3.6 million dollars & a 2021 BMW. David Church of Global Sweepstakes was the person on the other end of the call. I informed him I had not signed up for this so how could I have won. Following the first call I received 3 more calls and each time the person got more desperate for me to come to see my prize. The final time they called I told them they it was harassment & to stop calling.

  10. Someone from (541) 237-7213 called asking if I received notice from Global International of winning $5 million prize.. Not receiving any such I hung up. I got a call back from the number with a foul mouthed response.

  11. I got a call today from Richard Kennedy with Global International Lottery Company. I knew he was a scammer from the second he started talking. He told me I won first prize $7.8 million cashier’s check, $50,000 cash and a 2021 Mercedes-Benz. All he needed from me was a $999 processing fee. I’m on SSI and told him thats more than I get in a month. Well I kept him on the line for 25 minutes telling him why I couldn’t pay that amount in any way, shape or form. Bottim line, he’s going to call me back tomorrow to ask if I have a solution. I blocked his number lol.

  12. Yep I keep getting calls from a John Butterfield saying I won 8, 500,000.00 at # 845-584-5548 fony baloney call and that you have 95 days to claim

  13. I have been contacted today, first a call that was so broken up I could not understand him and hung up. He texted me in less than 10 minutes that Global International had a check for 800,000$ I had won and need information as to how to deliver it, name of bank and address etc. I replied that I had several bank accounts but he was not going to get any banking info from me. He replied which bank did I want the zero cost bank to bank transfer. I replied where I banked was none of his business. He replied that would be ok they could just deliver it person to person. I replied where was the money now, in what form, cashiers check or other. He replied where did I live. I said I wanted my other questions answered first and exactly when this person to person delivery was going to happen?? He replied he could arrange for the person to hand deliver the cashiers check Monday. He also asked why I was wanting so much delivery information. I replied because I was going to meet this delivery person along with a police escort, to protect me with so much money. I said you know there are a lot of crooks and scammers out there and I did not feel safe taking that much money and the police said they would either escort me or I could ride with them to my bank.

    His name -aka Mike Nelson

    Hey there Calvin it's Mike Nelson I just contacted you however, you had trouble hearing what I was saying.

    This was his first text from phone number- 423-444-8162

    Since I refused to provide any personal info, address, bank name, rtg and account number that later said after I said no banking info, not even bank name, then he came back with person to person.
    He has not replied since I said we would meet at Starbucks close to my and have a police escort
    Calvin Alldredge web site -my IP provider is art and I googled the Global int company and got you. I have been scammed twice and really learned my lesson. Since then, about two years ago I get at least 4-7 calls week saying I has won big, 1.-25 million and usually a merc they all had a reason that they had to pay this or that to the sum of 300$-4,000$ and 90% claim to be representing PCH- publisheroclearing house, my wife plays their no cost games- Sloto cash- slots for hours every day. She is very close to the top of 4 million players and we have both called PCH and again and again they assure me they do not call, they do not advertise winners unless the winners agree. They never charge a penny. You have the responsibility to claim it as income and you do pay The IRS taxes, period. You sigh some legal documents and get a copy of the 1099 that they immediately send to the IRS.

    I also get lots of calls per week from ALA social security with some stupid officer or agent claiming my Ss number had been found in a rental card using my SS number and there were lots of drugs found and my SS check was going to be stopped that day, however for a fee -300-1,200$ they could take care of my problem. I let them go for a while and then ask them for their ID and Badge number and a phone number. They almost always hang up when I ask if not I said I am a retired federal agent and I had all I needed including their IP address, then they hang up. Same thing with owing the IRS money. Just remember one simple rule. Neither the IRS nor the Social Security department will never call you and say anything personal or ask for anything personal nor say they have a warrant for my arrest. If either had a warrant they would sere it not announce it. Lastly this scam about government grants. You go thru 3 people as they train you what to say to the real grants department, but you have lie about you DOB, education, when and where you went to school and tell you why you want the money and you get it for free.All BS. There are others

    • Thanks for sharing Calvin, I get a similar number of scam calls. I don’t even answer my phone anymore unless I recognize the number. Nine times out of a ten it’s a scam or a telemarketer. It must be effective because scammers have been doing it for years and the scams get increasingly complex. They have entire call centers and there are YT videos of “cash mules” getting caught intercepting couriers at business addresses to collect packages sent by people who think they’re making legitimate payments. Education and awareness are the best deterrents, so thanks again for sharing your story 🙂

  14. This guy called me 1/1/2021. He thinks his getting close to getting money. (not) This is the 3rd time in 2 years he has tried this on me. I have been messing with his head for 2 months. He first said he had a banker to handle the pay off. It was suppose to be a women named Mary but it was the guy trying to sound like a women. (BAD) When i asked why he was hiding his phone number on caller ID he said he wasn't aware of it and changed the subject. Every time I would ask him a question he would blow it off and and start on something else.
    He sent me 2 letters like below, one for me and wanted me to send the 2nd one to Red Deer AB Canada.(which I didn't) It took him 20 minutes to find the address and another 15 minutes to find a return address which was Las Vegas, (I wouldn't put my name or address on it)

  15. I received a call from Eric Miller and then a Robert Morris from Global, saying that my deceased husband had won $800,000 in a sweepstakes he had entered. They said I could accept the prize for him. They said the money would be wired from the federal reserve bank in New York to my bank( I told them I would have to open an acct in a bank other than the ones I currently maintain accounts in.) I asked for the sweepstakes sponsor, but they keep saying it could be a combination. They said there would be no $ for me to pay, that the taxes would be wired to the bank acct and then the winnings. Supposedly, the federal reserve would do the transfers.
    I wonder whether or not they already knew that my husband was deceased so that there would not be a way to reference any sweepstakes he had entered, though I did offer up front that he was dead.
    I checked the phone number the second guy finally gave at my insistence, and it was a British Columbia number, though the first person said he was calling from Buffalo, NY. I’d I open an account in a new bank just for this situation, is there any way these folks could gain access to personal information? They keep saying that there is no money to be paid by me. Do I just go along with them until they ask for money? Why are they calling from Canada and Buffalo if they are headquartered in Vegas at a fake address, if it is fake? I have lost no money because, so far, I have not bitten. Guess there is the slim chance that the deal is legit, but I am so wary.

    • Hi Shirley, I’m on the same page as you… good to be wary. It’s hard enough to win a lottery when you’ve been playing the same numbers for years, let alone one you haven’t even entered in. I’d say 100% of these are a scam, but I’ll leave a little room for caution and say 99.9%. Here’s some additional information from the Better Business Bureau as to how these types of scams work. Of course, it wouldn’t be right for me to say what you should do in your particular situation but I do recommend proceeding with “extreme” caution.

      Also thanks for reaching out and sharing as I’m sure your story and situation will be helpful and provide insight for a lot of other people too 🙂



    • Hi Dianne, sorry to hear about this. Did you send them a lot of money? There is some information here (you’ll have to click on the ‘See More’ button) and the legal expert there recommends that you contact your local Attorney General’s office. I’m not a lawyer so I can’t provide any legal advice. You can also file a complaint here although I’m not certain how effective they are at recovering lost funds, and of course there’s the FTC but again, these are difficult cases to deal with as an individual. The other challenge is that the person you’ve been in contact with may have no affiliation to Global International, they are only claiming to… which is another common online scam. Not that Global International is a reputable company to claim association with, but scammers often pretend to be from companies with name recognition and this could also be the case here. Again, I’m sorry to hear about your situation and wish I could provide a more helpful answer.

  17. December 2020 they are hard at it and still the same old story the money and the Mercedes. I am am getting an era treat of romance and moving to Vegas. Wow I feel so special. Sounds like these guys need some new help that has a little more imagination cuZ they need some fresh ideas. I didn't realize they have that many years. So since Websters ways are not getting them results now I win a 2nd sweepstakes from publishers international and agent Anderson mcneal from consumer protection agency is trying to help me get my winnings. He is from west Virginia buy his number is from Virginia. Guess he isn't book smart only scam smart. 2020 will go down in history as the
    I have been playing with many many many of the multiple scammers from loans grants cash flips awards sweepstakes. Plus help fixers for taxes credit debt school loans life and medical insuraces. Plus online business like touch button 15 min day and make large cash.
    ITS ALL BULLSHIT but some times you just need to entertain yourself when government orders a "LOCKDOWN. 2020"

  18. David Slowly is another new name for global international that has desperately tried to scam my mother by saying she won 900000 in a draw that she never entered and delivery driver will be delivering it to her and once she has it all she has to pay for her winnings is 499.00. And they say they know her address and even called her by her nickname! Figure that one out!

    • Yeah, that’s scary. How they would get her nickname I don’t know. It could be another company or account she has that’s selling member information.

  19. Pe0plw call me from publishers clearing house winners international how do they get your number i have been scammed numerous times

    • Sometimes it’s just a database they use and every number is called. Other times it’s a targeted list they’ve purchased from someone or an organization who’s capturing people’s information (with a make-money-online scheme just as one example) and then selling it. Publisher’s Clearing House has been around since the 50’s I think, so it could even be an old number they’ve had in their database for decades.

  20. These lovely people called previously with this scheme…I just dragged it out asking 21 questions…
    Just to tell him a few things,..
    First Im not interested,
    Second, I’m not interested ….AGAIN
    Third, DONT call me anymore.
    Fourth, Give any winnings to a CHARITY.
    Now they’re calling back a few months later. All I could hear the guy say was… You don’t need to send any money. Yeah whatever. Still don’t believe their asses. Took a name, “James *****”.
    @707-741-**** Hope he’s not holding his breathe for me to call back…as he probably will call again anyway !????

    • Now the phone # is 417-289-6736 (6/22/2020). from Billings, MT and they sounded Jamaican and I kept complaining about their accents, telling them that I’m old and have hearing issues.

      • they only got $35 from me. He had asked me to buy an Amazon gift card for $35 which I did (using my Amazon Credit Card). When I called back he asked for the card claim # and when I said I couldn’t give that to him because he could cash the card he said that they would use it for verification that I was the correct person when they delivered the check, so, knowing I was being scammed I gave him the #, and sure enough, the money is gone. I called Amazon and it will be refunded to me. By the time I put them thru all the questions I had, and sending me verification on line, etc., it got too late for me to go to the bank with the person delivering the check so they are coming tomorrow morning to continue the transaction. I am going to drag this thing out just as long as I can, at least to the point where they ask for more money and then I’ll call it quits. I’m also going to contact the FDC this evening just to report them.

  21. I asked them for a number to call back, told them I was in a different state and didn’t have an address to the hotel I was staying at other than a room number. Needless to say, he hung up on me when I requested a phone number to call him back after I got the information he wanted. First tip it was a scan….the phone number wasn’t real, second his heavy accent, third…I never filled out anything for a sweepstakes (actually, this was the first tip off), .but I enjoyed keeping Mr. Morgan on the phone for 30 minutes…he wasn’t scamming some other poor sole.

  22. I am dealing with this company right now. This person was really very good and almost convinced me he was ligit. Unforunately after paying some money I realized I had been had. Lesson learned the hard way. I am really angry at myself for being so gullible.

  23. I personally had to learn the hard way about companies like Global International Lottery and Sweepstakes. I can remember getting letter in the mail saying that I won money although I had never entered a sweepstakes or lottery. Once I sent the “processing fee” and never got the money I supposedly won. Lesson learned for me. At this time I was desperate to find something that work and like you stated online marketing is king and finding the formal that works for you is the key to making money online. Great post!

    • Sorry to hear your story, but thank you for sharing. It may help someone else from losing their hard earned money. Some lessons are better learned from someone else’s experience.

  24. When I started reading, I thought, doesn’t sound like a scam, but then I kept reading

    Do people pay money to this company? It’s a long shot but if they paying for it Be nice if they have a shot at winning

    Thanks for the post, unfortunately there’s lots of scams out there, to bad some people aren’t honest

    • You’re right, there are a lot of scams out there. The worst part is that each one validates the other. What I mean is, they keep popping up because the ones that came before (or are still running) must be working. It would nice to say Karma ruled the day here but apparently that’s not always true.
      Thank you for stopping by,
