This is the insurance company. Wanted me to send $500. He had an accent. His name is John Thomas. I hung up on him. I don't know how he wanted me to send the money. He said the check would come through Bank of America. An additional phone number 864-406-3560. He called back after I hung up on him. He asked if I wanted public or private delivery. I knew the entire time it was a scam. I tried to call both numbers. Went to voice mail. He advised me not to tell anyone. He said you know how people can be when they find out you have won money. He sounded very professional. I asked if he could explain between private and public delivery. He said private we could meet somewhere. Public there would be cameras. When I was on the phone with him my co-worker Googled this and found scam information on Google.

Male person called claiming to be from Publisher's Clearing House stating that I had won 2.5 million dollars in a drawing. I pretended that the connection was bad and hung up. He called back immediately and asked me why did you hang up? You won a prize. I said I do not understand what you are trying to tell me. He said again that I had won this money in a drawing. I replied by saying that I had not entered into any drawings. He said that they select it from phone numbers.....I told him that this phone call seems suspicious to me and he began getting a little belligerent insisting that I confirm that I would like to have this money. I said I don't like this, it sounds like a scam and I will report this phone number. His response..."I will report your mama" and then he hung up!

We didn't fall for it but just wanted to report activity
