The male identified himself as being with Publishers Clearing House. He went on to say I had won over a million dollars, and a Mercedes. He asked if anyone would be at home, and also said paperwork would be available at 'Walmart' to fill out. Of course I knew it was a scam, I said I would look over any official mail I received, and continued to be uncooperative.... he quickly hung up ... just as I had expected. Be aware.

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

They called claiming I had won money from Publishers Clearing House, also claiming that the FBI was on the line, recording and listening in to the call. They said they would arrive at my door in 45 minutes to give me the check of $8.5 million, a 2017 black GMC Denali, and that I could claim $5,000 at a local Walmart. Eventually they said that I must first pay $450 to the IRS before I could claim anything. When I asked for them to confirm their legitimacy they put their "manager" on the phone, who proceeded to yell at me asking if I really wanted to claim the prize or not. Any mention of what PCH uses to confirm legitimacy of the contact, was further met by aggression.
