  • Monetary Loss: $730.00
I was contacted via Instagram first stating that I was a winner for several million dollars then shortly after that I received a phone call from a Fred Walters stating that he was a representative for a known company prizegrab which after a while. I assumed he was a imposter after I had already had sent money he still contacting me about winnings and asking me to send an additional 575 which went down to $300. This has been over a week ago and I know for a fact when you do win a prize you have 5 days to claim or forfeit it's way past 5 days.
