Publishers Clearing House / PCH.com / scam on the internet

1 1461 Gohier St., St.Laurent, Qc, Canada Review updated:

PCH Lotto: Alert Code [protected] I questioned if this was a hoax and was told: your email emerged winner of $850, 000.00 in the recent Publishers Clearing House global sweepstakes email lottery. To take yourwinning cheque fill details below and email to the contest department [protected]@usa.com signed Deborah Holland, Official Winners Selection Notice. I was told to contact: Skynet Worldwide Express Service for the delivery of my cheque re: Publishers Clearing House Lotto Remittance Office Reg
No: 1371841 contact person Sir James Lockwood United Kingdom Branch and was
referred to United States Branch Macon, GA 31210 email: [protected]@fastservice.com . I was then informed of package content:
Bonded Draft Check of $850, 000.00USD; A certified Lottery Winning Certificate; An Endorsed Affidavit of claims eligibility. To enable dispatch via express delivery system see charges below: Note Insurance fee added.
Max Delivery Duration 24 hrs $760.88 US Dollars ($10.00 fuel surcharge, Insurance $310.98, Vat (5%) $84.80.
Max Delivery Duration 48 hrs $495.88 US Dollars.
Max 168 hrs $399.99 US Dollars.
I sent $495.88 US dollars ($729.70 Canadian) via Western Union to :
Oliver John, Macon, Georgia USA Zip 31211 - Adress: 750 Baconsfield Dr. # 106, Macon, GA 31211, USA . I received acknowledgement of receipt but was informed that Mr Oliver John had fatal car accident on his was to receive my payment and would I send another to Romonia Woods
Macon Georgia, USA ZIP 31211, Address: 750 Baconfield Dr #106, Macon, GA 31211, USA.
I then realized that I had been scammed and believe me I was not happy with PCH
and Skynet Worldwide Express since I am a widow who lives on a fixed pension income which totals approximately $18, 000.00 a year and can ill afford to be scanned by Publishers Clearing House and associated.

    !!! Waiting for an explanation from Publishers Clearing House before I can update my complaint. Do you
    not want to know what your company is being used for scams.

    First, did you actually enter the Publisher's Clearing House lottery? You know it is a USA ONLY CONTEST, right?
    When You get a suspicious email, logically you don't contact the #or email THEY sent you. That just furthers the scam. You contact the police or RCMP & REPORT IT!
    I have just received the exact email & reported these scumbags to the RCMP.
    I know the idea of coming into a lot of money is enticing but that is EXACTLY what the scammers count on...greed & desperation.
    If it sounds too good to be true & there is a time limit or sense of urgency in the email IT'S FAKE.
    You are an idiot!

    Seriously? you sent money to someone who emailed you a scam email & you expect pch... (another scam) to help you?
    You let your greed & need of wanting $850k to override your common sense. did you even enter the pch lottery? it is an american only lottery which is a scam in it's own right.
    This phishing email you got is totally unrelated to pch & aimed at scamming people from theirmoney because they are greedy & naive. if it sounds too good to be true... it is! and it's worse, it is harmful!
    You should have contacted the police & rcmp to report the email. I have just reported these scumbags & their scam to the rcmp.
