Earlier today My father got a call at his home number from a Scotty Mcgregor number was 876-882-6936. He said he was just getting off the plane into Philadelphia and was calling to inform him that he won a Las Vegas Sweepsteaks he said he had won 1.5 million dollars tax free and a car either blue or maroon which color would he like. My father said maroon he then said he would be at our address tomorrow what time should he be there- my father said 10am the guy already had my dads address. My father said this cant be for real the guy said it is for real and all you need to do is sign something indicating that you understand that this is tax free and the money and car are yours. The guy asked him what bank he would like the money deposited into my dad said no bank bring a check he said ok. My dad said ok I guell ill cya tomorrow then the guy said ok and hung up. My father called me and told me about the situation so i went over looked at the caller id and called back. I got an answering machine saying new york lottery and some cheezy static sounding message. I diddnt leave a message but right after I hung up a Mr Mccreedy called he had an indian or some other foreign accent He told me that I had won a sweepstakes for 1.5 million and a mercedes benz and all i need to do is pay a tiny percentage of the sales tax. I asked where did they get my name he said Wallmart. I said I was calling to reach scotty mcgregor and a las vegas sweepstakes he called from this number earlier the guy said who i said again scotty mcregor he then said do you mean sunny i said no scotty and i explained scotty was going to deliver the sweepstakes money and the car tomorrow and said we just had to sign something showing that we understand its tax free. He said did he tell you about the small fee I said he said nothing about that. I said ok well what time will you be out tomorrow the guy said 10 am i said ok just so you know my neighbor is an attorney and I will also be calling the police to ask them to be here as well just to make sure everything is legit the guy said thats fine. I said ok then i guess ill see you tomorrow and kinda laughed thinking this is nonsense. Mr Mcreedy then said f**k you and hung up the phone on me. Be careful people obviously this is a total scam but it kinda convinced my father because the guy diddnt ask him for any info and said it was tax free and said nothing about any fee he had to pay. He then said he would drop a car off and a check the folllowing day and my dad would have to do nothing but sign something that stated he understands that the check is tax free. I highly doubt if the people will show up at our door now but if they do i'll certainly be calling the police before letting them into my parents house. My fathers no idiot and for the most part he thought this was bs no way did he win 1.5 mil but they were convincing enough to make him thing theres a small chance that there telling the truth. Be careful people.
I called back 10 mins later and got the new york lottery message again.
