    i have received so many promises of award winnings. If all of these come true, No one in my family will ever have to work again. Today’s letter contains a check copy for $3,900,000. Is is from Rappaport, Hiltner & Crenshaw, PMB 375, 24 Railroad Ave. Babylon, NY 11702. Of course no one was home.

    I just gotten a Phone Call from 876-840-1270. He said his name was David Washington and I won 2.5 million dollars but I have to send him $150.00 to process the check in western union. I asked him how did I win, he said that I was paying my bills on time and spend more than $5 in the store. I asked him what store and he said all the stores near me. SCAM SCAM SCAM! I stay in the country. The store is miles from my house.

    I just got a call too…and he’s still calling to confirm but I haven’t answered the phone again. He too gave the spiel about winning a lump sum of 750k plus a weekly stipend of 5k for life and a bonus of a new car. He wanted me to call him back to verify he’s legitimate and then I called my prosecutor friend.

    I just received a call from a Jamaican number 876-571-1091.1.8 million and a two-week vacation to Hawaii from PCH. He went through this whole spill about how I would get a cashier’s check with ID# 71775, Check# 00588500127, Reference# 62941EI, Confirmation Code 000515. Then……the real kicker!!!! I need to send him $495 via Western Union, becasue I have to cover some kinda one percent tax…. RIDICULOUS SCAMMERS!!!!!

    1. Rena says:

      Oh, yeah…he said he was calling out of New York (but with a Jamaican number?). He said he was agent Wayne Moore, ID# 71775
