A gentleman of an eastern Indian dissent called me asking me to verify am I full name and address that he was with publishers clearing House when I told him that his phone number came up registered as a Jamaica number he told me he was in New York New York United States. He then gave me a phone number to a John Malone area code 406-259-1596 extension five. He told me I had to call John Do you get all the information about a new car. I waited 15 minutes then called the number back and got the same guy that first called me from a different number. When I told him I was going to report him as a scam he hung up on me.
These guys have been calling me for close on to two years. They claim that I have won Several million dollars and a stupid Mercedes that they can shove where the sun don’t shine. I listen to his whole spiel like I have several million times to make sure he has the same jerk. and turns out he wants me to pay 400 and some dollars for administrative fees.

I was contacted by a person that said they were a representative from Facebook. I had won a prize on the lottery. So first I had to pay for shipping. Then it was something else. I guess they could tell I was starting to not quit believe them. So next day got s text from another representative and that one sucked all the money that he could out of me. If I wasn’t so darn stubborn I would have realized that they talked the same. Because now I pretty sure it was the same person. Well then I got a text from s totally different number. He said his name was James and he was Mr Zuckerbergs personal assistant and his boss whammed to know why I had not received my winnings yet, So I told him everything then the FedEx delivery man got involved and I realized that both he and James spoke the same way as the other two with different phone numbers. I finally told them they had gotten all the money they were going to get from me.
And that’s why I’m reporting it here
