My mail box is being flooded with material from American Sweepstakes Publishers, and they had me sending in small amounts of $10, or $11 in checks, and I was falling for the possibility of winning large sums of money, and was thinking that maybe this was legitimate.. We are living in times now, where people need money, and too many are getting taken advantage of by scams. I have some one calling me, with a foreign accent, telling me that they have a cash prize to deliver to my door, with the UPS, and gave me a check number, a serial number, and a routing number to track this with. The person calling me, has a private number that shows up on my caller ID, and I told them to call me on my mobile phone, so that I could check that out. He said he is going to call me tomorrow morning, and I am going to ask him the name of the company he is working with, and get his phone number, and investigate this, and am going to check him out to see if he is really, or a scam. I will not sign for anything alone, nor will I ever give my bank card, or Social Security number to ANY ONE!!
I am on disability, and a fixed income, and can't afford this. I feel as though people in this situation are the ones that are getting hit the hardest, and are the ones that really need money and support, and these scam artists see that, and the disabled and vulnerable fall right into their clutches!! This has got to STOP NOW!!
