I received an 'Official Prize Listing' - notice it's a 'listing', not a notification.  I figured it was a scam, but called just to see what it was.  I was asked to decide if I want a lump sum of $1.1M or a yearly payment of $36,000+ per year.

I was then told that I would be sent 2 watches with a diamond at the top of each face.  Then came the magazine sales pitch.  I was asked what kind of magazines I like, but I said I don't read magazines.  This precipitated a verbal list of every magazine imaginable, as if hearing the names would make me order a subscription to 3 of them.  I said that I don't read magazines.  The man on the line then said "I'm gonna get my supervisor on the line" and I said, no you won't and hung up.

What bothers me is that he had my address and phone number. I realize he probably had caller ID, but my phone number isn't listed, so how did he get my address?

Anyway, it's a big scam and not a very imaginative one.
