This is actually the second call we have received, with-in the past month. First time the callers of this "fabulous" award was from Washington DC. Said: I had received a "grant" for 1 million dollars and all they needed to know was what I will spend it on, Secondly, this was "government approved, and they needed to send it to my bank - direct deposit! So, I just said, "right" and hung up.
Today, March 2nd 6:00pm we get a call, the guy had a broken ...maybe spanish accent. Asked had I received any calls recently about Cash Rewards? I instantly knew.. OK here we go again. So I said, "No, why did I win something"? (This time I wanted to get a name if possible and number) Well he went on to say that I had won a 2011 Mercedes, and 2.5 million dollar cvheck, and would also receive 500,000 cash! Imagine that! I said I'm excited! What do you need from me? So he started asking questions like... how much do you earn a year? (They ask that question to determine how much they will try and ask for up front.
Do you have a checkings account, what about a savings? Do you have any CD's? Married? Yes, yes, yes to all those questions. He says he will need for us to pay $2500 for the tax on the mercedes before they can send it, and that I would receive the 2.5 million dollar check at the time of the car delivery - but we HAVE to do paperwork first! I say, "Well, ok let me get my husband from outdoors first - I will need to talk to him." (I already know he is going to ask for the banking account number" as before). Before he actually asked that question I said...
Well can I please have your number, and name to call you back after I talk with my husband? He paused, and then said... "yes". He said, call me right back just to be sure you wrote down my phone number ok. I said "ok" I will call you back. " I did. I called him back and he answered. So I said, "Ok I wrote down the number correctly, and your name again - I'm sorry? He provided his name, and is waiting on my call. He is waiting for me to convince my husband to send him $500 (not 2500 dollars). I guess he assumed we must be poor, and dropped the "money we need to send now from 2500 to 500 it's your guess. I assured him I will call back with the approval. NOT!
HIS PHONE IS: 876-351-1661 and the name he provided was: Dameion Brown
