Robotic sounding voicemail advised I won 7.5 million from Readers Digest Sweepstakes. Gave winning #000251US and to call Steve Carrel to get my prize. The phone numbers are supposedly attached to Telcentris Communications LLC with various locations in New York & California areas.

I received a phone call from (929)353-7100 saying I won a prize of $3.8 million, but, I couldn’t find my name on any of their winners lists.

The gentleman’s name is Jonathan Hale, saying he is in the “onclaims dept” and asking for sensitive information for a "Government Stamped Approval Letter". When he started asking for my mom’s maiden name that’s when I started to feel it wasn’t legit.

I’m hoping you can either confirm or debunk. Thanks

I have caller ID so I knew that is was no one I knew. He started by telling me since I had been a subscriber to the Readers Digest that my name had been drawn and I could win 35k or maybe it was 350k, it was a big amount. And a new car. he was going to give me a claim number and a persons name who was James Carson, son of Johnny Carson. I was to call immediately, hang up and call immediately, and not to call anyone else in between. They gave me an address in New York, Times Square in Manhattan. It sounds too good to be true. That was about it. And that I was supposed to call immediately. I thought I would call the BBB. Maybe the police. I am not going to call them. Gave claim number 555 044 2305 OR.
