Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes
I received a call from someone claiming to be from Publisher’s Clearing House and he had a check for $985,000 plus a new E-Class but since they had paid 99% of taxes for the state of Idaho I had to pay $650 via Western Union or MoneyGram. I told them there was nothing close and he suggested FedEx or UPS, I told I him I would send it right away and give him the receipt # if he game an address. He "transferred" me to the insurance department. The new gentleman asked how much I had been quoted and I told him $150. He said that sounded appropriate. I told him I could FedEx if he gave me the address. He would have to hang up to get it but he had it right there and he would call me right back with the address to send the money too.
