I was driving when my cell phone rang.  On the other end of the line was a man who said he was calling from Goldrush International, and that I had won 1.5 Million Dollars!

I was asked to write down a number, so that when the US Marshall/Merchant Banker came to my door, that number would validate that I am the winner!

I raced home to hear further instructions.

Much to my surprise, I was asked to go to a Western Union office to wire $199.00 for 'shipping and handling' to William Smith in Cleveland Oklahoma, then give the receipt to the US Marshall/Merchant Banker, when he came to my door.  I would then receive the check.

I could see myself, doing what he asked, then waiting and waiting for the Marshall to come to my door, and never appearing.

I would then be out $199.00!  No 1.5 Million to deposit in my bank.  What a rip!

Good thing I did not fall for it!  I did get the phone # though: 876-445-3476

When a person wins anything, there is NEVER a charge for 'shipping & handling'!
