Got a phone call this morning from a fella with a heavy accent saying I won third place in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes! A certified check for $850,000 and a 62 inch flat screen TV! Wowwy!!! I told him that I was just a bit skeptical since I hadn't entered any sweepstakes but he assured me that I had won and gave me another phone number to call to verify my winnings. Well instead of calling that number I looked up the number he was calling from, huh, I didn't know PCH was based out of Jamaica. SO while I'm on the net looking up Jamaican phone scams the fella calls back but now he has a different name and he tells me I've won 1.5 million dollars and a 2011 BMW in another sweepstakes! MAN!!!! Am I lucky or what?!? So I'm thinking to myself, REALLY? You are going to call me twice in fifteen minutes with two different stories and expect me to bite? So when I tell him, "hey you just called me 15 minutes ago with a different name and story", he asks if I called the other number he gave me to claim my PCH prize. SERIOUSLY???
I told the guy that no I didn't call that number but I have the state attorneys office on the other line if he would like to talk to them. The guy just hung up on me, that was kinda rude.
I guess I need to call the state AG and file a complaint for real and give them all of the info I have. How many ppl fall for this stuff and get ripped off? What really makes me mad is that I was going to sleep in this morning before this BH called and woke me up.
BTW area code is 876.
