At 2:42 pm I got a series of 3 calls. The first 2 I did not answer. Then it was a person who identified himself as Miles and said that I should have received an item in the mail. When I told him I had not he then explained that I had won a small prize from Publishers Clearing House but I would either have to pick it up or they could send it in a few weeks. I told him I would have a family member pick it up today, and he explained that I had to pick it up myself, but first I would have to go to my local Shoppers Drug Mart and get a Perfect Gift Card Visa Card to pay the taxes.

When I reminded him that wins were not taxed in Canada he explained that it was for handling charges. He wanted to know how long it would take me to drive to Montreal to pick it up, and I said that it would be about 3.5 days, but when I asked how much I won he said it was 3million 355 thousand dollars. So I told him I could afford to fly there for that, but I would not get the gift card here, I would pick it up in Montreal once I had verfied the cheque.

He explained that since I would not be spending my money in Montreal I would need to get the cheque in Alberta, but I explained if it was over 3 million dollars I would spend the money in the Carribean or someplace warm, not Alberta.  When I asked for a phone number to call back I was told that he wasn't allowed to give that to me, but he would stay on the line while I drove to the closest Shoppers. I told him sadly I was at work and could not go so he has agreed to call back this evening so we can conclude our business.

Can't wait for my call back, so excited that I won a sweepstakes I didn't enter for a magazine I didn't buy. Hopefully I am able to satisfy the requirements quickly. Or not
