You have won $750,000 and a Mercedes C Class

  • Monetary Loss: $Nothing Yet
Peter Phillips called using the phone number 718-577-2904 and told me he represented The Bank of America and that I had entered a contest and won second prize of $750,000 and a new Mersedies Benz C class. He said the confirmation number is 222456. He confirmed my address and asked a bunch of questions. He asked me which bank I dealt with and I told him Lafayette Bank. He told me that tomorrow, I should open a new Savings account for $1 to $30 dollars so that they could transfer the funds. When he asked for my drivers license information I questioned him on why he needed this and he said they needed it so they could verify that I was old enough and that I had a valid drivers license. I told him I didn’t have my license with me and he gave me the following number 866-978-0054 to call him back with the information.
Earlier he asked me if I wanted the transfer of prizes to be public or private. He explained that public Kent that a television crew would be there and everyone would see that I had won these prizes and private meant that the public would not know. I told him I would have to check with my lawyer and he told me my lawyer would by law take 45% of my winnings. He said that if I provided the drivers license information and opened the new savings account tomorrow Wed jJune 13, they would deliver the funds to my bank and deliver the car to my home address.
