    got a similar call. i will follow your steps to report; in addition, i was able to record about 25 minutes of the call (kept him on the line playing dumb.) He hung up on me when I explained that you dont pay taxes before you file your returns for the year….. anyway, if anyone sees this that could direct me as to where to provide the call recording, maybe this guy coud be identified and stopped!
    you may email me at

    surprised that anyone would fall for this, nothing ever sounded legit….,

    Hello – just wanted to report the scam that was just attempted. Man called me from Jamaica, claiming I had won 2.5m and a car, phone number that called was 876-487-8051. Provided a bunch of bogus information, said his name was David Anderson Badge Number 1902, provided a check number and the name of person who was to drop off my “car and check”. Asked me to pay a 1% fee and thats when I hung up.

    Just wanted to share this with you so you and other were aware.

    Thanks.
