I have been receiving calls on my cell phone and home phone from a company NCL. One caller is Jacob Roberts. My caller ID shows 202-838-0212 and Mr. Casey. Caller ID 585-312-0405. Said I won a $900,000 sweepstakes. They also mentioned Government Grant for $9000. They asked if I received a letter for unclaimed funds. I told them no. They did not give me their address. I have received about six calls in the last two weeks. Maybe more. I call them back. They asked me for one percent security bond of $900,000. $9000 fee. I told them I don’t have a dime. I said can’t you just take the fee out of the winnings. Then they wanted $1000. I told them again I don’t have a dime. I was not sure if it was a scam. It sounded very real. I called my daughter and told her. She said it is a scam. I did not send any money or give personal information.
