I answered a call on my home phone. It was a live person. It was a man. He was from Mega Million. He called yesterday and today. Told me I won a bunch of money. I forgot what he said. Millions of dollars. Whatever it was. I did not pay attention. I knew it was a scam. Caller ID showed phone number 720-893-0885. I called it back to check number. It was not a working number. I said I never signed up. Don’t call here. He hung up. I did not give him a chance to ask for money.

Woman gave a nice sounding young man $100, then $5000 & then $8000. He claimed they represented many companies and will be flying in from NY & bringing her Mercedes in on a flat bed allowing her to choose the interior and exterior colors of the car. She gave me a lot of personal information over "lots and lots of calls". Mr. Ervell, his manager, ph# is 469-334-4642. Original # Allaen Ledford gave her is 716-791-9869 and he even called and had "his wife", Stacey, talk with her. They had a nice "chat". She said he said he would be changing phone #s because 716-351-2402 had been hacked. He started calling several weeks ago (Nov 17, 2019). Ms. Parish said her "memory isn’t good".

A $100 money order was sent from the USPS to Charlene Diak, 122 Cramer St., Tonawanda, NY 14120 on 11/18/19. The next two payments were sent over-night priority express in the Post Office. Charlene Diak also was also sent $5,000 with a Southside cashier’s check on 11/18/19. Carolyn Coppola was sent an $8,000 cashier’s check to 955 Wall St, Iva, SC 29655 11/20/19 from Lindale, TX (Southside Bank) clearing the bank 11/25/19. Earl Brown is the "manager or something" with Mega Millions, she says and they do this for different sweepstakes. They drew her name from 60 names when she asked how they called her.

He asked how much money she had and she told him and "that’s where they drained the money from". She was told "not to tell her husband and to keep it a secret because it would be a big surprise for him". She has another account "Link Financial" and order $$ from her account (it would take 10 days). She told her financial advisor money was for building a garage and and other home activities.

I’m 77 years old. I got a call yesterday from Michael Peterson who said I had won a Mega Million contest. He told me I would win $350 million plus 2.5 million in cash. He said it was a random drawing from a list of people who have a good history of paying their electric bills. He said he could see they had called me before. He said my prayers had been answered, and miracles happen. He said my family could be present at the house and an authorized attorney would take me to the bank with an authorized check. He said let’s get the ball rolling, and I could have the check in four hours. He wanted me to talk to his boss. He asked why this money wouldn’t be valuable to me. He said "Do you promise to call me back?". He is waiting for me to call him back at 847-236-2029.

I received a call on my home phone. Michael James was the callers name. I do not recall what agency he stated he was with. He said I won $45 million Mega Million Cash Award. Second prize. I received an E mail on my tablet. He had asked if I entered into a contest. I said it has been a while. They wanted about $700 for me to receive the prize. Processing fee. I would not have to pay the money until they came to the house with the camera crew. They would also deliver a Mercedes car for me. The people that would come would go to the bank with me. The bank would want to know where I would get the money from. The only thing I gave them was my E mail. Sweepstakes lottery. I was not sure if this was a scam. I told him I don’t have any money. I did not send any money. He read my address. I never gave it to them. My husband told me it is a scam.

Called to inform me of a winning ticket, I made filled out at a function in Milwaukee (All Canada Show) and they want me to send an account

and ? process number. Which I did…but thinking it might be a scam, I opened an account with nothing in it, plus informed the account carrier

that this shall not be a withdrawal account. It worked except they allowed a $90 withdrawal, but corrected it before it was too late, then a request

for an additional $60. I lost nothing and lucky the account carrier didn’t either, as they knew better.

A man calling himself Pastor James Global the III has called many many times trying to give me 1.5 million dollars who says all I would have to come up with is $120, I kept telling him I didnt have it and wouldn’t give it to him if I did because I’ve been scammed before.. Then he said he was going to talk to their lawyers and see if they couldn’t help me because God wants me to have this money because of my situation, he says he’s not from out of this country but the number on caller ID said Jamaica underneath a phone number which is 1-876-892-9327, then he had me call this number 866-996-5997 to get the confirmation number. He says their name is mega million and he would not get the $120, the IRS would get the ir. Now he is telling me He explained my situation to the lawyers there and they are going to pay my Fees for me.. All I would have to do would be to take all of my info that they gave me confirmation number Exedra to a Walmart Harps Krogers or the bank and fill out a form to get my money.. Then I could send them the hundred and $20 when I got my winnings. I also had told him I haven’t been playing the lottery, he says this isn’t a lottery winning when I told him that I haven’t bought a ticket he asked me if I had ever bought Reader’s Digest books or something else I can’t remember, and that is how I won this contest. From what I have been researching and reading the check would be fake and I would still lose my $120.. I really wish these people could get caught because people but they are calling usually could really use the money and have hope still have faith in people come he even kept praying and asking the Lord to help me to have faith in him that he really wanted to give me this money because it sounded like we needed it so bad, it’s sad when scammers use your Christianity to try and scam you so they can get your money!!! Unfortunately, it sounded way too good to be true therefore I am on this page making a report.. Which is extremely sad, disappointing and makes me extremely angry! Because they are literally using GOD & the IRS to steal money you already do not have to give!!
