Complaint / review / scam report
Publishers Clearing House /Raymond James, Chief Fin. Officer
Fraudulant sweepstakes prize of $1, 000, 000.00 / Martha Stewart Living Magazine No state

My report is the same as Angie Z, Anaheim, CA. I recieved a check in the amount of $5, 889.00 as a check to cover any outstanding fees not covered by PCH. I was supposed to call the IRS representative named Charles Henwood at (888)813-5672, ext. #1, or I could call the IRS representative Harvey Armstrong at (514)699-2389. I couldn't reach Heywood at first, so I called MR. Armstrong. He said there was a package there for me, ready to be sent after I talked to Mr. Armstrong. I called the Pnc Bank in Atlantic City, where the check was drawn, and they said this was an open and active account, but could not verify funds. I then called PCH, who said this was not the first complaint they had recieved about this scam. After talking to them, I called Mr. Henwood and pretended I didn't know it was phoney, and he told me to deposit the check, then call him back immediatly!! When I asked why, he stated there were fees that would need to be paid out of the check to the IRS, but there would be some money left over for me. This would get the ball rolling so they could distribute my million dollars to me.Apparently they would have asked me for my account numbers so they could withdraw the money from my account to begin the process. The check was drawn on an account belonging to"Checkers Oil Service". When checking it out, we spoke to the owner of Checkers, who had not written the check, and knew nothing about the sweepstakes.I reported it to the police and the postmaster general, who will be checking this out. As in Angie's letter, the envelope had a stamp from Canada, with no return address.
