Victim Location 65781
Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes
I just received a call from Kingston, Jamaica from two different phone numbers and was informed that I won the International Publishers clearing house sweepstakes and ask me if I was at home. Since I was not at home, he asked me if I would be able to take time off work to be home to receive my check (no monetary amount) and very special package. I said sure. I’ll take a long lunch. He then gave me a phone number to call as the home office and to talk to Bobby Ray, the manager. I then asked him to give me my home address to see if they had any of my information. He gave me a zip code of 65484. I told him that was not correct. I asked him the name on the check and he said it was BAKER. I said now. He told me to call the home office to verify my info and hung up on me.
So I called the phone number and they asked me for my home address. I gave them a fake address and they said that I had won the sweepstakes for $950,000 and a new Buick and asked if I could pay them 1% of my winnings so they can bring me a cashiers check and the car. I said no thanks and they hung up on me.
