Quotes

According to PCH: "We do not ask for bank account information. There is no processing fee, tax or special handling charge required to win."
“Think these things through before you go into a knee-jerk reaction. Ask yourself, "Does this sound realistic?’” he said. “You really just have to try your best to stay calm.”"
I told him, "I'm recording this call for broadcast on the air and I'm asking you to please stop calling her."
