caller told me the paperwork they had mailed to me was sent 3 times to the wrong location. They then had to contact me by phone. They were going to deliver my 2 million dollar price that same day Tuesday 3/21/17. After giving me a reference number and "bar code number" for the check, they advised I would have to provide photo ID and send them a fee of $250. At that point I told the caller I don't send money to win a prize and hung up the phone.

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.
