This is so upsetting to my family and myself because two weeks ago my husband received a check from a company for almost $5000 and we were so excited and then I got to checking into the company and so on and of course found out that it was all a scam. We were so angry. Well once again today March 2nd we received another check and boy did this one look real, it even said it was from Progressive insurance company. It all looked legit, but of course we got the letter with the check. I did try and call the number they give you because I'm so angry I wanted to tell the person what a horrible person they were, but of course its just a recording and you can't leave a message because its too full. Well I hope this helps at least one person thank you very much, Angela...

It has now been almost 4 weeks and THESE people still keep calling me. I have called the FBI, the FTC and the local police about these annoying phone calls. I know it's a big scam and I'm sick to death of it. I have had to put my answering machine ringer on 4 so they will just hang up. I figure if it's really important whoever is calling will leave a message. Dammit, I am so over it and I am at my wits end as to how to stop this harassment. I have put my number on the Do Not Call Registry but I am afraid that will not solve the problem. How many endless weeks do I have to endure this nonsense? For crying out loud, I just want to throw the phone through the wall.

I got a call from Publishers clearing house Albert Johnson saying I had won $650K in check, $195k in cash and a BMW. All they need is $395 for processing the legal documents. 876-468-6902 saying he was in Las Vegas but my caller id said Jamaica. After telling him I couldn't pay that. He got off the phone to see what other options there are. I got an email with all the details. It looks very official but I smell a scam!
