Michael Brown Federal Reserve Scam

I received a call from someone claiming to be Michael Brown who claimed some sort of affiliation with the Federal Reserve. The number he used was (754) 210-1746. He told me I had won a prize/award of around $250k on which all taxes were already paid except a few thousand. I expressed skepticism but he denied any knowledge of scams or involvement in such. He told me he would call back. Hope I blocked him.

Automated message received from a local phone number and recording states they are the federal reserve and an arrest warrant has been issued due to fraudulent activities with bank accounts and for details press 1. I immediately hung up and called my bank who stated it is a scam and I should report it ASAP but do not press 1 or speak to anyone. I received this call a total 4 times so far in just past few days all from local phone numbers.

I missed a call on my home phone. My caller ID showed Federal Reserve 929-268-1974. I called the number back. A woman answered the phone. She did not give a company name. She said congratulations. I said congratulations for what. I do not deal with the Federal Reserve bank. She said we have unclaimed funds for you. I said from where. She said it was from the Mega Millions. $5 Million. She said we have been trying to get in touch with you. I asked since when. She replied October 2018. I said that's impossible. She said they sent the funds to the Federal Reserve. I kept asking questions. She knew I was on to her. She hung up. They did not ask for money. I did not give her a chance. These people are something. I called the number bank. It rang and went to voice mail Extension 1002.I did not leave a message. I know it is a scam. I receive so many scam calls.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

"Andre Pitts" contacted me from 559-744-3707 and said I had money in a Federal Reserve because I had never gone bankrupt and I have paid my bills on time within the last 16 months. He told me to get a MoneyGram then call 904-632-1000 with a 5 digit alphabetical/numerical code to see what to do next. When asked how to trust if they are legitimate, they gave me their name (Pitts) and a 9 digit alphabetical/numerical code and told me to contact the ScamPulse.com and they would say he was legitimate. The ScamPulse.com has no idea who this guy is or what the "clearance code" is for. This is a scam!
