Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I received a phone call to my cell phone from Publishers Clearing House. Caller stated I won $1.5 million. Wanted me to go to Walmart and get something like a Government tax information release. Requested 299.99 for a tax paper. I did not send any money. I figured if I won a prize it does not make sense to have to pay a fee to cover taxes. The phone number on my caller Id os 876-404-7301. They gave me a different number to cal them back 876-472-8180.
