Total money lost $1,000

Type of a scam Sweepstakes/Lottery/Prizes

I was scammed last week by Mr. Clark at the Consumer Protection Agency 646-381-2102. He was very nice. He said I won $750,000. I went to Office Max and sent him $1000 in a money order.

So this week, I’m getting calls from Winner International for Senior Citizens. The guy’s name is John Pierson. His phone number is 209-437-8578. He said Mr. Clark’s real name is Peter Myers. He asked me if I lived alone, and if I was renting. He asked if I had a credit card, and he offered to pay it off and then I would see that he is legitimate. I said I did, but wasn’t giving him the number. He said it doesn’t work that way. He says I’ve won a million and a half. He says I am going to lose a lot of money if I don’t cooperate with him. He doesn’t have an accent. He said I would have to pay $1500 for taxes ahead of time. I said no. He said he didn’t want to see me lose this money, and he would take care of it. He didn’t want me to talk to anybody else about it. I told him I talked to the treasurer of my church who said I’m being scammed.

I received 3 calls back to back on my cell phone from a Chicago ILL phone #. I answer on the 3rd time and I was told that it was the Consumer Protection Agency calling. That Customs w[censored]ding a package for me and that they were getting ready to send it back to the sender because I had not contacted them. He informed me that I had won second place in a sweepstakes. He of course gave me the phone # for Vegas Customs and a tracking # for the package. He told me that it was $450,000.00 and I need to contact them right away. So I did call the number and they did answer US Customs. The number was 866-978-0058. The gentleman wanted the tracking #, which I gave him. He came back on the line with my name and address. Said they were allowed to open the package because there was so much fraud going around with sweepstake winnings. He also told me that the state that I live in only allowed you to receive $100,000.00 by mail, and everything else went through customs. That he had checked out the name of the company and that the bank "Bank of American" was whom the check was from and that it was good. That I only had to send him $555.00 to receive this money, but not to think of it as a fee, because the bank was going to reimburse me for the money. My response was Thank You, but no thanks, that I know knew where the fraud came in and hung up the phone. Remember That it is a criminal offense to open someone’s mail and I have never heard of a package going to US Customs !! Plus you never pay for something you have won.
