Global Winners International / repeated phone calls
My mother has received MANY calls from men, with strong accents, advising her she won $2, 000, 000 and all she had to do was . . . . (it kept changing). Today she needs to go to Wal-Mart, CVS, or Radio Shack and purchase something (I cannot remember the name of the packet) for $150 and get right back to John Fisher in Las Vegas [protected] and give him the code off the money packet. He would then begin processing her prize which is to be delivered to her home on Monday. When asked what proof I had that they were legit I was told ALL the conversations were recorded and that the BBB, IRS and Chamber of Commerce were all listening in. "Okay, Sweetie?" My Mom has the sense to recognize a scam and did not do anything but listen to them and ask some pretty good questions. BUT THEY WILL NOT STOP CALLING!!! I will now be making one more call to 'John Fisher' and tell him to back off, that I have reported this scam and will be calling the phone company and the police if they persist. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
