Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

A man named John Green called me from this number claiming he was with Publishers Clearing House. Said I had won 10 million dollars and a new Mercedes which was on its way from New York to my house. He was quite convincing saying that all I had to do was pay $500 to cover the expenses of the getting the car here and that was it. He instructed me to go to Walmart which I'm guessing he was trying to get me to Western Union him the money. Sadly so many people fall for these scams but I'm not one of them.

These people keep calling from Jamaica telling me I won money. They will not take no for an answer, and I am fed up with their tactics. They claim I won $8.5 million dollars and a Mercedes Benz. All I have to do is pay $595.00. I told them I do not have that kind of money, and he asked me to put it on a credit card.

Some different people I talked to were: James Kingston, David Leach, and Roy Jackson.

I received a call at my place of business saying my phone number was given to them by at&t to win Publisher's Clearing House and I won the second place prize of 920,000.00 and a Mercedes all to be delivered to me today. The man on the phone referred to himself as Mr. Miller and he was in his 50's. I needed to get my prize insured so I needed to go to my local Wal-Mart or Western Union but to keep everything private and he would walk me through it over the phone. He said once I got to Wal-Mart that I needed to get a Money Gram in the amount of $492.00 made out to Emma T. Dacquel in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. He said this money would be refundable because with that Money Gram I would get a receipt but the people who would be bringing me my "prize" would need to see proof of the Money Gram and my registration (which would come after they received the money of course, "showing that I'm protecting my winnings") when I started questioning and prying for more information he then says "YOU ARENT OUR FIRST WINNER TODAY AND YOU WONT BE OUR LAST! I'm not FORCING you to be a better person and do this!" I told him I was not comfortable doing any of this and he then proceeded to hang up on me. I knew it was a scam but tried to get as much information so this jerk doesn't actually succeed in scamming money from someone uninformed.

A man giving his name as David Benjamin called and said I was the recipient of a Publisher Clearing House award of 8.8 million dollars and

a 2017 Mercedes Benz car. He kept telling me two men were on their way to deliver the award; I just had to give him my home address

which I did not.

A phone number was given to me to call to confirm all this: 876 569-5971 and a confirmation number: AQ 77USA. I asked how PCH

acquired my name and he just said I had entered a lottery (not true) and my name was picked. I hung up when he said there were a few

questions I would have to answer for him. When I asked him questions he would change the subject, i.e. reminding of me of award and

even asking what color car I preferred.

A person claiming to be John Perry has been calling our home from 876-817-3922, at times non stop for minutes at a time. The number he calls from is not a credible number. I called it when he left a message saying it was urgent to find out the nature of the call. He did not leave a number it's what shows up on all the missed calls. When he called again and I saw the same number I picked up to say stop calling. The questions that he was asking made me feel his calls were a part of a scam. Fortunately I interupted an earlier call from him as my mom was about to give him some personal information.

He claims our mother has won third prize in Publisher Clearing House for paying her bills on time for the last five years. Its difficult to hear him, the phone is distant or muffled. He wanted her to go to the closest Walmart and set up an account at Western Union in order to claim her prize. Of course we did not.
