Consumer received a voicemail from scammer stating they won cash and a car and to call them back. Once the consumer called back the scammer, the scammer informed the consumer that they won 2 large sums of money and a car. In order to receive the prizes they needed to go to Walmart and send money ($559) to "Dmitri Sangster 21 Main Street Kingsten Jamaica".

I received the first call on July 19, 2018 in the early evening around between 8-9pm saying that I have won several million dollars, to claim money would need to give number of certified check about $898.00. He was hesitant of sending official documentation. I asked if there was a governmental body involved. He was persistent and overbearing. He said he was a claims representative and speaking on behalf of general manager. I told him I didn’t want publicity. I asked what kind of information do they mail out he said none. They said they were from International Gaming Commission, the name of the person that called me was James Hall. He was claiming from 202-897-1777. The first thing they want you to pay a registration fee and you must show your Ohio driver license. He did not want to mail me anything. He was talking about they would send out people to award the money, but you must have paid registration fee and show Ohio driver license before they give you the money. I had a couple calls yesterday July 23rd as well. I told him I didn’t feel too comfortable about this, and when I told him I aware that I would have to pay taxes on the amount, and would have to report the source of money. When I spoke about IRS they were very hesitant about that. He said that they would send members out to my house. He asked me how much I have in my bank account.
