Review updated:

I reciently received a number of phone calls from men, claiming to be from a company, winners inernational. They advised me that I had won a sweepstakes lotto, and was entitled to a large sum of money. They said to keep it confidential, so that know one would try to rob me. Funny, it was them who was trying to rob me. They were very persistant, and called me for a few days, before I started screening my phone calles. If you recieve any phone calls like this, it is a scam, also check out td financial for the latest scam, which I also recieved a few days after the phone calls. They want you to wire / money gram them money, to cover, insurance, or state taxes on the supposed money that you have won. They assure you that you will recieve your money immediately after paying. Don't do it, it's a scam.

    I received a call from them saying I won $10, 000, 000 & $8, 000, 000. Right now I am waiting for confirmation documents in the mail. I believe I won't receive them. If I do I'll let you know. But I refuse to send any money to anyone I don't know.

    Beware: the scammers are on the prowl again in 2017. My mom has received multiple phone calls from different men (all speak with an accent) claiming she has won 3.5 million dollars and to collect her money she needs to pay the tax on the money. It is a scam! Luckily I was at home when the call came through and she asked me to speak with the party on the other end of the line. Please do not support terrorism!

    I just received a call from a Ryan Anderson October 2/2017 advising me that I had won $984, 000.00 and a brand new car-he said that he was representing Canadian tire ?? I asked him where he was calling from -St-John Nebraska--- what the hell Nebraska ?? Canadian Tire has no stores outside of Canada -so I knew then that this was a total scam but I continued to ask him questions -I asked him if this call was being monitored and his answer was yes and by whom?? his reply was -the cia ?? I asked the central intelligence agency ??? he replied yes WOW
    HOW STUPID DOES HE THINK PEOPLE ARE-- he was even then very insistent and I then asked him how will my prizes be delivered??
    he said that someone would deliver the said check at my home but will I be ready to pay $487.00 as delivery costs?/
    I hung up but did not give out my address or any other information----ps this guy had a strong accent so maybe from Nigeria but definitely not a ryan Anderson

    I was just contacted by Wayne Walters @ [protected]. His email is [email protected] He asked me if I had been getting his mail. I said no because I no longer live at that address. Of course he wanted my new address and I didn't give it to him. He said I had registered at Walmart back in 2010 and I had just now won. I told him that I was at work and I didn't have time for this nonsense. I said what did I win? I won a new car and a check. I asked OK how much money did I win? He said you have my phone number and that's when he gave me his email address and said it was private and he didn't want to give that information when everyone was around. I said you are not on speaker phone and I am in my office so no one can hear. He said it is private so call me when you get home. I bet I do! If these darn people would get a legitimate job and stop trying to steal from people it would make it so much easier on helpless older people and disabled people that need money so badly that they fall for this crap. Contacting me 7 years after I so called entered something was stupid on his part. Please people I contacted Walmart and this is a scam. DO NOT fall for it.

    Call came in today June 9, 2017 man named Tony Simith said he was a UPS driver, had a certified check with Winners International, stating that we have won 250, 000 dollars and a Chevy Malibu.
    Congratulated me on our win. Wanted to know how far the Post Office was from where we lived then said we would have to go to Wal mart to get the papers for taxes, and pay 1% with a money order to give them when they delivered the check for the money and car. Gave us all sorts of Confirmation numbers [protected] USA, [protected] USA, [protected], Phone # [protected]. My husband and I keep talking to him to waste his time and hopefully aggravate him. Hope some one out there can catch these people and put a stop to trying to take advantage of those that actually work hard to make a living.

    They are now using Facebook to try and scam people. I received a friend request from a MARK ALLEN whose timeline and profile say he's a UPS employee from Tennessee City, Tennessee. The next day I received a message via messenger stating I had won $90, 000, a 2016 Lexus, $1, 000 per month for the rest of my life and an Amazon gift card, no amount listed for the gift card. He wanted me to confirm my phone number and my full address. When I asked for some form of validation of the Company and him, he would only message back for me to confirm my information. He repeatedly asked for my phone number and full address. I gave him nothing. I think it's pretty low to use a person in anyway. I posted a warning to my friends. I unfriended and blocked him on Facebook.

    Well my information is this...all of the above...this very sweet man was very concerned with my health...did I have enough medicine...did I have enough money to buy my meds...He even told me that he would send me a money order and I was to take out all the money I needed to get my bank account straight...told him I was overdrawn which I am...he was very willing to help me but I needed to go and borrow money on my car and send him as much of $2500.00 as possible to pay taxes on my $250, 000.00 that I had won...I'm 70 years old and have lived long enough to know a scam when I hear one...but my husband does not trust anyone so threatens me for even talking to these people...he doesn't understand that I enjoy listening to the promises they make to you and even tell you they are a Christian and wouldn't ever do anything to hurt you and to trust them as much as they trust you...well yes I am a believer and one of the things I believe is that he will stand before God and answer for all the lies he has told poor people who believe him...I am just thankful I am not one of them... BEWARE of men with sweet talking foreign speaking voices...If you lose you money it's your own fault for not listening to us...because the officials won't help you.!!!

    Also just called by this company, a representative Andy Goldgerg asking if received their leeter/notification of my winnings. He was hard to understand. I gave very little info in the way of responses. He then started to say 'F*&% You ' to me over and over. I asked him if this is how he spends his day and I hope he gets arrested soon. Hi # is [protected]. What is wrong with people!?

    I received a call from a friend who had gotten calls from the number [protected] and said when he tried to call back he got an error code. I called the number and a man named Peter Douglas said I had an undelivered package and he needed to call me back in the morning because he was just leaving the office. He called back at 8:15 on Jan. 6, 2015 and I told him that I had called for a friend and gave him his number. He called back a few minutes later and said he did not want to speak to a man but to me. He had my name and address and told me I had won a car and $72, 000.00. I asked him how I had won and he said by using my credit and debit cards. He said he wanted to verify that I would be home so they could deliver my prize. He said he was just a delivery man and had worked at Publishers Clearing House as a delivery person. He said these people didn't want to just pop in. They wanted to be sure I'd be home to accept my prize. I told him I thought it was a hoax and he tried to change my mind but I told him to give the prize to someone else, I wasn't interested.

    -T) hese ###s just called me, supposedly from Jamaica, the number it came from was [protected]. Perp stated that his name is Mr. James Anderson and that he is calling me from Winner's Int'l. That this matter is urgent and for me to call them back immediately regarding a certofoed check that they have for me. I know that this is ### and I have contacted the police giving them ALL of this information. If "Mr. Anderson" only knew how broke we are, he'd have a cow and realize that this 'pawn' is not worth the time. I hate those effers!!!

Now I am suppose to receiive documentation of all this in the mail if not I am contacting the FBI. So please beware of this man Mr. JOHN FERNADEZ and KEMAR RHODES

    I have really enjoyed Mr. John Kennedy calling me from Winnners International. This was an obvious scam - wanting me to buy green dot cards and give him the number to pay taxes on my winnings of $2.5 million. He called me 67 times over a day and one-half. Finally tonight I told him that I enjoyed "playing with him". Then I started calling him at the same number from which he had called me. After about 100 phone calls he was begging me to stop calling him. It was so much fun. I told him I had to go to bed early because I had to slop the hogs in the morning and all kinds of stories about why I couldn't get the green dot cards for him.

    The only way to stop these idiots is to harrass them more than they do you. The green dot cards should be outlawed. The cards are marketed by Visa and Mastercard and are issued by the Green Dot Bank, which is owned by Visa and Mastercard!

    Received a call today from Winners, Int'l - Caller ID [protected] Kingston JM - The guy had a heavy accent and the phone line had a lot of static and I couldn't understand some of what he said so he had to spell several words so I could understand what he said.

    Here is some of the conversation:
    "You have won 2.5 million dollars"

    But, I didn't sign up for anything.

    "When you paid your cellphone bill on time and every time you paid your credit card bill on time your name was entered in a drawing and you won the 3rd prize of 2.5 million dollars"

    Okay...

    "UPS will deliver to you tomorrow between 2-3pm"

    UPS doesn't deliver on Sunday.

    "Oh, yes. Monday morning, they will deliver between 2 and 3, and you will need to give the driver the following reference code xxxxxx, package code xxxxxxxx and 3 digit code xxx and you will need to present a claimers card, Green Dot Money Pack card"

    I don't have a claimers card. I don't even know what that is.

    "You go to Walmart or Walgreen's and buy a $50 .."

    I'm not buying anything, this is a scam.


    Then I hung up. Unfortunately I did tell him that I would not be home between 7am and 6pm and he knows my address.

    I got a call from these guys at 2:00 AM telling me I won 4.5 million dollars and a new BMW from Winners International/ Donald Trump & Oprah Winfrey. He said his name was Mark Peterson but he spoke with such a thick Jamaican accent that I could barely understand a word he said. I called his number back at 8:00 AM to question why a legit business would call someone in the middle of the night and he said because he wanted to be sure that I was home! Then he told me I had to go to CVS or Wal Mart right then and purchase a Money Card for $199 to give to the driver who was delivering my check that morning. While he was blabbering on... I went online and read all the complaints from others about him. His phone number is [protected] but my caller ID said the call was from Jamaica. I told him Donald Trump and Oprah Winfrey were professionals and they would NEVER hire someone who doesn't speak proper English to call someone at 2:00 AM! To mess with him, I told him I already had a money card but my brother who was a police man would be here to meet his driver. He said if I had the card on me to read the numbers off the back of the card so he could purchase the "security insurance" before delivering the money to my house. I said, No, when the driver shows up with the money, I'll call you back and give you the numbers then. Then the idiot said, "That's not how this works! And I said, Oh that's not how your SCAM works??? I hung up on him. I hope someone finds this idiot and puts him in jail.

He said I needed to be happy about my winnings and should send my 1 percent via western union to get delivery of cars. He said he was calling from location in New York. But it's an international number. Do these scammers not realize people have caller ID.

    I've been messing with 'Winners International' for a year now. Many things on this SCAM sight are exactly what they told me; many different approaches but all used by most of them. They are persistent, even pushy. If you push back, they get outwardly angry and verbally offensive. They are Jamaican and share some of the same language/cultural idiosyncraties. With me, they acted like others had invaded their territory and instructed me to never talk with the other guys. I'm sure they were all part of the set-up, with their plan being to get more money from me by stating that if I paid money to the others, it would not be counted as a payment with their company.
    They, too, used the explanation that the $$ be sent by W. Union or MoneyGram or use Green Dot MoneyPac, or USPS Overnight Mail, to some assumed regular citizen in several places in US and Jamaica. I, too, cannot believe there isn't some legal intervention in this country to handle these individuals. From this website, there are a lot of people with a lot of info on this "company". For me, I've recorded my info and am mailing it to my attorney for safe keeping, my local law enforcement, the State Attorney General, and perhaps some attorneys who handle these kind of cases and would love to see these guys (I never talked to a woman at Winners International) behind bars with some of the biggest, nastiest criminals in the world.
    Yes beware--and do not stop your vigilance. I had my phone #s changed 3 times to try to avoid the persuing calls

    I received phone call today (12/2) from Andrew Moore, Winner International. Winning 2.5 million BUT I WON'T HAVE TO PAY ANYTHING! Ha! If anyone else calls, ask for my code which Andrew gave me, to see if they are legit. He is supposed to call in the morning at 7:30 and they are supposed to deliver the check accompanied by a marshal and an attorney, between 9 and 10:30 A.M. tomorrow. This is tax free BUT the IRS is going to have to ok the "package" because I receive a government check monthly. Ha! His "cell" number is [protected] from Rialto, CA. I have received numerous calls from these scammers for at least 2-3 months - all with an accent (Asian?) Most of the time I ignore, sometimes lift up receiver and click on and off! But this one called back 3 times before I finally stopped to listen when he answered that I would not have to pay anything... we will see.

    My grandmother, has had this same problem, with these people calling her day after day, to 4x a day. Their story changes, the com that they are calling from changes, the only thing that stays the same is the 876 area code. She finally got fed up with it, and asked to use my police whistle, that I used to use for yard duty. Well this morning when they called, she blew it right in to the phone. I hope they got the message. Don't mess with the elderly, they know old school, they will pull old school. I do hope these people get caught, they are more persistent than bill collectors.

    I also received these phone calls it is definately a HUGE SCAM!!!. I got the call from a man saying I won 1, 000, 000 through Publishers Chearing HOuse. I checked with them and Publishers doesn"t notify you through phone calls or facebook. I have recorded there phone calls on an audio recorder and am trying to get Publishers to take a law suit out on this compnay.

    Having the audio recordings with the persons name and the company name they claim to be through along with voice mail messages and emails should give Publishers the leverage they need to stop these people and companies from continueing with this scam

    I receieved a call this evening from someone named "John" (phone # [protected]) from Winners International Delivery Service in Las Vegas, Nevada claiming my name had been selected at random in a Walgreens sweepstakes, and I had won $50'000 dollars. He wanted to deliver the check via UPS tomorrow but when I said no I had plans and would not sit around all day waiting for them, and to just let me pick it up at the nearest UPS drop-off he became agitated and said no he can't take it back to the depot because he would "get in trouble with his boss". I asked him why I had not heard from Walgreens themselves if I had really won such a large amount of money? He said that was standard procedure for all contest winners. Then he said I had to pay his company $50 as their fee for delivering the check. What ??? Right then the warning bells went off and I began to grill him as to why a contest winner had to pay ANYTHING...why hasn't Walgreens contacted me? Why would they give the check to you to forward to me? Why can't I just go to UPS, show my drivers license as ID and get it myself? On and on I went but he kept trying to convince me it was legitimate and to let him drop the "check" off the next day. I took his contact information and said I was going to contact Walgreens first to verify what he was saying. Anyway, to make a long story short, I walked to the nearest Walgreens and spoke to a manager. Lisa (the manager) said there was no contest and if anyone had won $50'000 dollars, there would have been a big announcment and everyone would know, not to mention my being contacted directly by the store. She then asked for Johns number so she could call him herself. Then I called John from the store but was sent to voicemail so I left him a message letting him know the store had been contacted and that this is a scam...THE END!!! So sad that people have to go through this sort of thing..really. Anyway, I hope this helps anyone else out there should these snakes-in-the-grass try to call them..and remember..if it sounds too good to be true..IT IS!! I only hope these scammers are caught and thrown UNDER the jail. Oh yes, the guy had a thick Nigerian accent...need I say more? :-)

    Jim Kingston of Winners International called today (04/20/13) for the second time this week to tell me I had won thousands of dollars. The phone number shown on caller ID is [protected]. You would not believe how low these thugs would sink to try to collect on their scam. I must not rank very high they didn't offer me a new car or millions of dollars and only wanted $250.00 to redeem my prize. These guys speak broken English and don't understand southern expressions. (That part is very entertaining) The way I look at it is, the longer I keep them on the phone leading them around, the less money they will make at the end of the day. When they come up short maybe their boss will kick their butt HARD. These guys are worthless pieces of garbage and a parasite on humanity. My heart goes out to young people who are trying to keep their parents from falling for this rip off. They don't understand how evil some people can be. (In their day there weren't so many and you didn't have cell phones and computers to speed the scam along..)

    I received several calls from Mr. William Richmond, [protected]. He claimed he was from Winners International and that I had won $850, 000 and a 2013 Mercedes Convertible. He then asked me how I wanted to get my prizes, public or private. Then he asked me to get Green Dot Money Pack card for $500 and he would give me the money back. I told him I already had a Green Dot card, he asked for the number and I gave him the wrong one. He asked for the 16 digit number when there are only 14 digits. I have never used the card. He then called back and asked if I had gotten the card to which I replied, why I should pay to get a prize, he said it was for shipping the car from Las Vegas! He called back again and added a surround sound stereo system and Las Vegas vacation to the package. He even sent me an email with a picture of the check, representatives from the company and the car. He called again and then said to call him because his phone was running out! SCAM!

    My father-in-law has been getting calls like this from someone named "David Snyder", at [protected], which turns out to be a New Jersey cell phone. When I called, he told me he represents the "New York State Lottery Commission" (which I found does not exist) and has a check for $2.5M for dad, from "Winners International". I asked what he needed from my dad to deliver the package. He guardedly said, "Nothing". I asked if he had the address, to deliver the check, and he said, "Yes". I left it at that. Afterwords I did an internet search and found this website. If the calls to my father-in-law continue, I like the air horn solution noted in another post, above. I just hope we can convince my father-in-law, who is starting to show signs of memory loss, that this is a scam.

    I received a phone call today, and listened to the guy. He then told me that I would not receive the full amount, because taxes need to be taken off, and I informed him that in Canada, no taxes are taken off of lottery or other winnings. He then told me that it is "International" therefore there is an international tax. I let him go on, and told him "So, what is your catch" He then told me to put $150 (I turned off my hearing at that point) and I interjected and told him that "You must think I am stupid, because I know if you have to pay money to win money, it is a scam" and I hung up. He called back and said "You are pissing me off" and I said "I am not interested in your scam, have a wonderful day" and I hung up. Can't fool me!

    WINNERS INT'L called me to inform me I won 2.5million and anew Mercedes. I was contacted by phone by 2 gentlemen both with heavy accents, perhaps middle eastern. They wanted $350.00 - I said, "I'm not giving up any money until my prize is in hand"...all the sudden then the guy lowered the price to $175.00 but that they need it in a MoneyPak card?!...then they will notify the IRS as if the IRS would already be there with one hand on the check for 2.5mil !! they would gas up the Mercedes...and all sorts of crap...perhaps I could forward a fake MoneyPak card?

    My friend started receiving calls from these people telling him he had won a huge amount of money and a brand new car. If he would just send them $500 they would receive the money and car after he got the money. I said this is a scam. So he told them that if they brought the money and car to this house then they could have the money. They said because of Nevada laws the could not cross the state lines with out the money from him up front. He then hung up on them.

    They called back and I answered the phone and told them they were a scam and they called me the devil and to get out of that house. Then the cussed me out in their native language. I hung up. They called back again and said they only wanted to talk to my friend since I was a evil person and I was not letting think for himself. They told me they did not like me and to leave the house.

    I said I live hear and who were they to tell me to get out. They then said they did not like me and not to talk to them any more. I responded with "I do not like you or your Momma either" and hung up.

    They also told me that because of me my friend was going to be investigated from the FBI and they would take his house, his car and all of his money. I said I work for the government and I was reporting them. They said you do not work for no government you are just the devil.

    They even had the nerve to tell us that because of me that the FBI had arrested him because he was trying to bring my friend the money and the car with out getting money from him. He said the FBI was holding the phone to his ear and he needed the money or he was going to jail. I said good go to jail and stay there.

    They are still calling night and day, but we do not answer the phone anymore. We have told them over and over again. They keep calling because they think they can convince my friend into giving them money.

    These people need to stopped.
