I received a call from the number 1-876-386-4378 this morning, 6/5/2010 at 8:17AM. It was difficult to hear the woman on the other end, not only because of her thick accent but also the horrible phone connection quality on her end.
She began to tell me that I had won a lottery of $250,000 and there would be a driver showing up at my door with the check and she verified my mailing address...SHE gave me MY address and asked if that were correct. So I asked her "What's the catch?" And then she proceded to say there was no "catch" and all I would have to do is show my ID to verify it was really the correct winner and then she went in to say I would need to find a Walmart (yes, she said Walmart) and get a certified check for a certain percentage of the winnings to give to the IRS and my $250,000 check would not be delivered until I called them (the woman who called me) with the receipt information. Then the people who have my $250,000 check would either meet me at my home to follow me to my bank or at my bank with my check and then I would physically hand them my $400 certified check from Walmart...Then she clarified it was a Western Union Money order.
I then began to ask questions..."What lottery is this from?" (Because I haven't played any lottery in years). Her answer was that I had won a lottery. I was the correct person. I asked her name: "Nancy Harris" Her company she worked for: "National Recovery Service" Her phone number: "1-702-516-6477" How can I verify this is legitimate? She said I could call her at that 702 number and she would transfer me to the IRS representative. And by this point she also said: "Do you want this money or not?" And I said that I do but I need more proof before handing over even any information off of a receipt of $400. So I asked her who, at the IRS, she was intending on transfering me to and told her I was heading to my computer to look up the number for the IRS and she again said: "Do you want this money or not because I have other things I need to be doing." So I told her, again, I want the money but I will call the IRS and Better Business Bureau to confirm she is working for a legitamate company before getting the $400 M.O. Then she hung up on me.
I got online to look up the phone number she gave me and its from Las Vegas, Nevada but I couldn't find a business affiliation to it. I then called that number she gave me and some guy, also with a thick answer and an even more horrible phone reception/connection than the first lady answered by saying: "Hello." I then asked him who he was and if the number I had dialed was a business and the reception of his phone got even worse where I could only hear every other word and I told him that. I did manage to hear him say this was a business I had called and I asked him why, if it were a company/business, didn't he answer with a business/company name greeting and he started to speak but the reception was so bad, that I could not understand him and I hung up. Within the next minute, I got a phone call from a "restricted" number with the same guy I had just spoken with on the other end and it sounded jumbled with a computerized sound to it as well. So again, I hung up.
On June 1st. I received a call at 1:18PM from the number: 876-583-3758. I let it go to voice mail and when I checked the message, it was a man, with a thick accent, horrible reception/connection and hard to understand, leaving me a phone number to call him back. Unfortunately, I deleted the message without writing that phone number down but I feel that it was from the same company because of the horrible connection, thick accent and lack of other information given.
