WELL, I RECEIVED A PHONE CALL FROM SOMEONE CALLING THEMSELVES, DAVID MILLER. HE PROCEEDED TO TELL ME THAT I WON 2.5 MILLION DOLLARS, WOW, WAS I SURPRISED! THE TIMING OF THIS JUST HAPPENED TO COINCIDE WITH A DISCOVER CARD CONTEST. I WAS ASKED IF I WAS READY TO CLIAM MY PRIZE TODAY; OF COURSE I WAS.
I WAS THEN TRANSFERRED TO A CLIAMS REPRESENTATIVE BY THE NAME OF; ASHELY PORTER. SHE INFORMED ME THAT IN ORDER TO CLAIM MY PRIZE I WOULD NEED TO WIRE $795.00,(COST ME $47.70 IN WIRE FEES), AND A REPRESENTATIVE FROM MEGA MILLIONS WOULD BE AT MY HOME IN LESS THAN 3 HOURS. ALSO, I WAS TO CALL ASHLEY WITH THE WIRE CONFIRMATION NUMBER AND THEN MY MILLIONS WOULD BE DELIVERED BY A PERSON BY THE NAME OF SUSAN ROGERS. LOW AND BEHOLD, WHEN I CALLED ASHLEY BACK WITH THE CONFIRMATION NUMBER, SHE INFORMED ME THAT I NEEDED TO SEND ANOTHER WIRE FOR THE AMOUNT OF $2,800.00 FOR A STAMP TO GUARANTEE THAT THE CHECK WOULD CLEAR CUSTOMS. I TOLD HER I DID NOT HAVE THE FUNDS; WHAT SHOULD I DO NOW? ASHLEY PUT HER MANAGER; DAVID MILLER; ON THE PHONE AND HE TOLD NOT ONLY MYSELF, BUT, MY HUSBAND THAT THESE MONIES WOULD BE REFUNDED ONCE THE CHECK FOR $2.5 MILLION DOLLARS WAS SIGNED FOR. SO, LIKE THE IDIOT I FEEL LIKE, WENT TO MY BANK AND CASHED A CREDIT CARD CHECK FOR THE $2,800.00 STAMP AND WIRED IT TO; KIRK THORPE,(2ND WIRE OF THE DAY TO HIM), HE WAS TO DELIVER THE STAMP TO CUSTOMS WHERE OUR CHECK FOR $2.5 MILLION DOLLARS WAS WAITING TO BE PICKED UP BY A COURRIER BY THE NAME OF "MAVRICK WYNTER", THEN A REPRESENTATIVE BY THE NAME OF "SUSAN ROGERS" WAS TO MEET UP WITH THIS SO CALLED COURRIER, AND DELIVER MY CHECK FOR $2.5 MILLION DOLLARS. OK, TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT, AFTER I WIRED THE MONEY FOR THE STAMP, I CALLED AND GAVE ASHLEY PORTER MY CONFIRMATION NUMBER. SHE THEN TOLD ME I NEEDED TO WIRE $4999.00 DOLLARS TO INSURE THE CHECK.

THAT'S WHEN WE KNEW WE JUST GOT SCAMMED.
OF COURSE THERE IS MORE TO THIS STORY, LIKE ALL THE PHONE CALLS, A CAB WAS SENT TO MY HOUSE TOO. HAS THIS HAPPENED TO YOU?
WE ARE (Inappropriate Content Removed) AND FEEL TOTALLY EMBARRASSED, BUT, WE NEED TO HELP EACH OTHER STOP THESE PEOPLE. I GUESS WE ARE ALL OUT ALOT OF OUR LIVE SAVINGS. WHAT A BUNCH OF (Inappropriate Content Removed)

  • yes. they called today. I knew up front it was a scam. When you are told you have to send money to receive winnings, you should get it right away. SCAM SCAM SCAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When he called the first time, the man named "chad" said I had one 2.5 million dollars. I in turn hung up on him. After hanging up, I decided to call back the number that was on the ID. Chad picked up the phone. I let him go through his whole story. Towards the end of his story he said he needed my cell phone number. I told him I couldn't provide my phone number because I use a Government cell phone as part of my work. "Chad" then wanted to know what I did for the government. I informed him that I worked for the consumer affairs division of the Office of the Pennsylvania Attorneys General. Then I told him I needed to know where he was calling from. "Chad" then asked me if I had a pen in my hand. I told him yes. He then told me to shove it up my Ass and then he hung up. Next I had AT&T track the origin of the Phone call to Jamaica. I placed a call to the constabulary office of Jamaica and they began an investigation as of today. Still waiting to hear of the results but "chad" messed with the wrong person.

  • A david foster called me today and said i won 5.4 million, a new car, and 2 years worth of gas in the mega-million drawing. his number is 803-403-2504 an he wanted us to use a credit card and give them 797.00 dollars first. he just kept going on and on when i said when they came to my door with the prizes we would pay them then. he wouldn't go for it and promised this wasn't a scam. then i told him i heard if you had to pay money up front that it was usually a scam. i ask how i won it and he said there was all kind of ways, shopping at wal-mart, using your credit card which i have none of. buying lottery tickets. if i won by using my credit card he should have already known my credit card number if i had a credit card. he had a accent like he was from africa or some place close to there. when we asked him where he was out of he said well i guess you don't want it then and didn't answer my question then hung up.
