Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes
An individual named Michael Carr called claiming to offer a prize from Publishers Clearing House. The prize was 3.3 million dollars and a Honda CRV. Mr. Carr claimed to be from New York, though the caller ID stated "Kingston, Jamaica." When asked about the location, Mr. Carr said he was on Kingston Street in Jamaica, Queens. Mr. Carr said, to claim the prize, due to fees involved, a spending form would need to be picked up at Walmart and $645 sent back to him. As this request and call was fishy and appeared a likely scam, this payment was not provided. After hanging up the call, Mr. Carr continued to call 7 or 8 more times. Information concerning this scam was also reported to Publishers Clearing House, which stated they do not call prizewinners or request payments to claim a prize.
