What is this scam? How do I determine if this is a scam?

Political robocallers are often legitimate calls from a real political campaign. Legitimate political robocallers aren't trying to scam you or get your personal information for nefarious purposes. However, even legitimate versions of political robocalls can be annoying. And of course -- scammers may use politics to their advantage, too. Like religious scams, political scams may use a "common ground" to lower your defenses. A shared political party is shared affiliation -- you're both part of the same group, so you aren't as suspicious as you should be. Be very wary of any political call that requests a donation -- especially if the donation needs to be in a strange currency like gift cards or wire transfer. If you want to donate to a political cause, dial up an organization directly. If a political caller is requesting a lot of personal information, zip your lips. They're probably a scammer.

Scam

Fake fundraising scam asking for donations that they keep for themselves. This is a fake charity fundraising scam! 99% of these unsolicited phone calls from charity fundraisers that pretend to raise money for veterans, police, firefighters, breast cancer, leukemia and other cancers, autism, colleges and schools, the NRA, political organizations, and other seemingly worthy causes are ALL SCAMS!! If you want to donate to these causes, do your own research, research the Charity Navigator website, and you will find reputable charities that actually donate most of the collected money to the actual cause that they represent. All these other fake fundraising scams rotate through various charity causes every day and keep all of the collected money for themselves, some of these fake fundraisers purposely overcharge your credit card thousands of dollars and then disappear, and they all really ruin the trust that people have for the reputable charities. Many of these fake fundraising scammers use automated interactive voice response (IVR) software that sounds very human, but you are initially talking to a software-based robot who asks you some questions and responds based on your replies before transferring you to the real scammer who steals your credit card number under the pretense of raising money for a variety of fake causes that these scammers rotate through every day. The human scammer often says they will mail you an envelope so you can mail your donation in, but then they immediately ask for your credit card number. The robot caller usually begins the call with either a pleasant female voice or a stern male voice asking, "Hi, this is (fake_name), how are you doing today?", "Hi, is the head of the household there?", or "Hi, is (your first name) there?" Scammers often use IVR robo-dialing to automatically match the name that the robot asks for on the phone call to the name that is associated with millions of phone numbers and addresses on phone marketing databases that anyone can purchase. Many of the thousands of India phone scammers also use these same phone databases and they often ask for you by name to sound like a personal phone call to gain your trust. If you reply "No, John is not here" or "No, you have the wrong number", the IVR robot is programmed to say "Maybe you can help me" and still ask you for a scam donation. More than 70% of all North America scam phone calls originate from crowded phone rooms in India that run numerous fraud, extortion, and money laundering scams every day, but some fake charity donation scams are also run by American scammers. Like all the other India scammers, these fake donation scams also spoof thousands of fake Caller ID names and numbers so you can never call them back on the fake number that shows up on Caller ID. Nowadays, NEVER trust any unsolicited caller who supposedly represents a charity, a pharmacy, a computer support person saying your computer has a virus, a fake robotic recording of a Social Security or IRS officer saying your Social Security has been suspended or you have unpaid back taxes, a fake debt collector threatening you for fake debts, a fake recording from Amazon/Microsoft/Apple/Verizon/AT&T/bank, anyone who phones you with any kind of sales offer (more than 90% of unsolicited sales calls are scams so your odds of saving money are very poor), any kind of legal or arrest threats, any claims of suspicious activity on an account, any claims of refunds or auto-renewed/auto-debited accounts, and any pre-recorded messages. Any unsolicited caller with a foreign accent (nearly always Indian or Filipino) should immediately be treated as a scam until carefully proven otherwise. Scammers usually use VoIP phone numbers or spoof fake Caller ID numbers that they change every day or sometimes change every hour. Legitimate businesses never use hundreds of area codes and tens of thousands of fake Caller ID phone numbers where you cannot call them back. They are all FAKE and they all try to steal your credit card or Social Security numbers, or they ask for your bank and personal identity information. Anyone, including you, can use telecom software or a third-party service to phone using fake names and phone numbers that show up on Caller ID. It is really very simple and easy to avoid phone and email scams - if you assume all unsolicited calls are malicious in intent, you will never be scammed and have thousands of dollars or your identity stolen from you. Sometimes I love to play with these scammers by pretending to be a gullible target and stringing them along on the phone call for 30 or 60 minutes so I can at least waste their time and prevent them from scamming someone else while I cook and eat and toy with them.

Caller Name: PCH Company (Publishers Clearing House)

said he was from PCH and gave me some numbers to write down and he was going to fly from NY to MI to give me my $2.5 million and a Mercedes would be brought to me via a truck. Of course I knew it was a scam. I did call PCH after I told him I was going to call them to verify what he told me and he said, go ahead and that he would call me back. Obviously he will not be calling me back. I reported his number to PCH and told them what he told me.
