David Brown called and told me that I had won $866,000.00 & a 2011 Mercedes and all I had to do was pay 375.00 for the transfer of the car title. I don't have any money and I told him we could pay it out of the money he was bringing. He did not want to do that. He asked me what bank I deal with and I told him that I don't have a bank because I have no money. He is supposed to come here tomorrow at 10:30, with the car and a check. Two Marshall's will take me to the bank. He told me that the check will be drawn out of Chase bank, so I told him that I will open an account there.The first problem I noticed is that his letter head spelled lottery wrong! Lottery was spelled write in the letter, but who has words spelled wrong on there letter head! I called my daughter and sent her a copy of the letter and she looked this up on line and found this scam! I am going to call the CIA like the fraud web-site said to do. I was told if they show up and say the car is going to be shipped later, they are frauds and they are busted. If they show up with a car then take the car and have the funds verified at the bank.It would be rare that this is not a scam but because they didn't ask me for money we have to wait until they make there move! I am kind of scared. David did not want the news paper so if I chicken out, I can always call him in the morning and tell him that the newspaper is coming and they said that they probably will not show up, unless for some reason this is real! The likely hood of that is 99-1. any advice?

Update: 09/11/2012

The company name he used is Mega Millions Sweepstakes & Lottories, Inc. {notice how he spelled lotteries}.
