I was so surprised to open up an email today from PUBLISHER CLEARING HOUSE informing me that my email address won ONE MILLION DOLLARS from PCH lottery. Is this true or just another email hoax trying to get my personal information as I was asked to fill up some personal data. did this happen to you?

No you couldn't have won the $1,000,000 from PCH because I did. LOL Or do you think that two of us here on myLot are that lucky? Gotta love some spam mail.

You would think they already had your information since they sent it to you especially to your email address. I do not fill those out. I let spam take over, lol. Report suspicious emails to FBI , they take care of internet fraud, solicitations, etc...

I guess that was a big scam.. just think about it how can you win without a bet? They will ask you for a processing payment to get your prize.. other way is that they are informing you that you win a free trip to other countries it maybe true but when your there they will charge for some fees like hotel accommodations and others.. -Hope it helps- -Good Day-

I think its a scam. I got a lot of emails just like that. Some say to help them with a huge transaction to an overseas bank or something like that. My word of advice, stay away from such things

Did you go in for a lottery? It sounds just like the emails they had floating around about winning the UK lottery. I knew it couldn't be true because I hadn't entered a lottery. I think you are being scammed . Why would they need your details anyway?

If you had joined the said lottery then maybe it is true.. but I don't believe in that kinds of emails. Just beware of those scammers..

After receiving such notification and being excited about it, you must first ask yourself a question; "Did I join any lottery/promos lately?" The first rule in winning a lottery -- you wouldn't win in a game of luck unless you tried your luck.

I think you stand by the opinion of your MyLot friends. Someone has got such a mail , they convince you and get your full address phone number and Paypal account ID details then every month they deduct money for the lotto. Those whom I know have not ventured it when it came for the Paypal details and monthly automatic deduction. It is not a big amount. But what is the guarantee that they pay you?

Search i any search engine for Publisher Clearing House and all you will find is complaints http://www.consumeraffairs.com/misc/publishers_clearinghouse.html One says: '...victims receive phone calls claiming they've won the jackpot prize of $500,000 -- and all they have to do to collect it is pay a processing fee of $1000 dollars...' http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/10/28/publishers-clearing-house_n_337887.html Move on and you will be better off

run a mile, if you had won the lottery use your common sense. If one of your customers had won 1 million dollars would you e-mail them to tell them ?? course not, they would at least send you a letter and if it was the uk lottery they would send a rep round and inform you in person. So run a mile.
