Publisher's Clearing House

Publisher's Clearing House is still receiving reports from consumers who have been

contacted by con artists requesting money to collect a non-existent prize. The consumer

receives a call from an attorney or law firm claiming to represent Publisher's Clearing House.

The name most often used has been "Howard Levy" from "Levy, Goodman and Associates."

Mr. Levy informs the consumer that they have been selected to receive the second prize in

the contest. A follow-up call is made soon after to inform the consumer that the first prize

winner has been disqualified and they are now the top winner. Mr. Levy then asks the consumer

to send money via Western Union or American Express Money Gram to a bank in Israel, or

some other foreign country, to cover processing fees. The phone numbers provided by Mr. Levy

have been from Canada.

Again, please do not send money for processing fees or custom fees to claim a prize.
