Gold Rush International Lottery Services Calling to Inform You That You Have Won 2.5 Million Dollars Las Vegas Nevada
*Consumer Comment: There is no prize.
He wanted me to go to a Western Union and send $250 to an individual, Mary Bunkle, located in Louisville, KY. This was to cover the insurance and security of getting the check to me. (Supposedly refundable after I got the check). If I paid it tonight they would arrive tomorrow morning between 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.
Gave me a phone number to call if I did it and an alternate in case I couldn't get a hold of him. By the way, had to put me on hold for another in coming call. Should also mention that I could hear someone in the background making a similar call.
He asked if I wanted them to come with a camera crew to film the event and if I wanted them to escort me to the bank. Also, if I wanted my name published or confidential.
Asked me if I was familiar with Western Union, Fed EX, BBB, & IRS. Said he needed to fill out a T19 tax form.
As he tried to convince me that this was for real, I went to the BBB to see if they had any listings for this company and there was nothing (for a business that is suppose to be 30 years old).
Informed him that I was checking the business out online. He inquired where, I told him BBB and there was no listing of such business. He said that Gold Rush doesn't have a web address because they don't want other people getting our information. I didn't buy it.
I am a person of great faith which I did not mention and somehow he knew this and tried to persuade me that he was too and even quoted a Bible verse. Still didn't buy it.
Eventually, he told me I was too skeptical and challenging. He could not deal with me any more and hung up.
Is it not illegal to require payment for the claiming of a prize?!!
