National Awards Commission Corporate Announcemnet - Paul Bishop, Prize Officer Scam! Too good to be true. what no phone number or web address? Keep Dreaming!! Kansas City Missouri
At first, I thought maybe this was true because about two weeks ago I received a phone call on my cell telling me the same thing. All I had to do was sign the paperwork that was coming my way and send it back.
However, as a special prize over the phone I won a watch with a REAL diamond in it. OH BOY!! All I had to do was give them my credit card number over the phone and buy one mag. subscription for less than $10. Like I'm that stupid!! I told the odd sounding man over the phone that I would be delighted to win the money (By the way he asked about 4 questions on how and what I would spend my money on) but that I was not interested in spending any of my own money.
He became somewhat pushy and asked again which one I would like to order. Again, I told him no thank you and decide that this was the end of the road for him and I. I thanked him and hung up. What was really scary was he had my full name, home address, my work address and what I did for a living. This is why at first I thought maybe is was real. Then I got scared knowing someone out there new a lot more about me than I wanted them to know.
Back to the letter...I realized real quick that the letter was fraudulent. They weren't asking for any money to win the $1,000,000.00 prize. It even says at the bottom,"Purchase is not necessary and will not improve odds of winning". But they were asking for $11.89 made payable to N.A.C. for a premium offer. Without a website or a phone number listed I knew what I had to do....
Check them out online. And here I am...fake papers in hand. Please don't be fooled by this childish scam. If everyone they send this letter to paid them $11.89 they might be the winner of the $1,000,000.00 prize by by stealing it from innocent people like you and I. Don't cave to such stupidity! Just hang up or rip up the paperwork.
Hope my story helped!
P.S. When I looked at where the stamp should be on the envolope it has a red ink stamp (Not a regular stamp) that read National Award Commission presorted standard u.s. pastage PAID Kansas City, Mo Permit #270.
