Good morning. I am Loren, a former asst prosecutor, and I look forward to assisting you.
Expert:  Loren replied 1 year ago.
Unfortunately, I am sorry to tell you, this is, without a doubt, a scam. There is no prize waiting for you from PCH.
Expert:  Loren replied 1 year ago.
PCH does not ever require an upfront payment from a prize winner and, assuredly, does not collect taxes on behalf of any taxing entity.
Expert:  Loren replied 1 year ago.
Do not respond or otherwise engage with this person and, certainly, send no money. This person is a criminal trying to steal from you.
