Global International called me this morning telling me that I had won 2.5 million dollars and would I be home this morning. He said that a courier from the United Postal Service UPS accompanied by 2 security officers will be delivering a certified letter containing my check sometime this morning.
He said I needed to call [protected] and give them the reference number 105us. I went along with him on the phone but didn't call the number. I knew it was a scam.
He has not called back, but from reading the other entries here, I’m sure he will be calling again.
The scammer calls and mentions the name of the "winner of a check". Says "Please call our office", and gives the number [protected].

I keep getting calls for Global International from an unknown person saying that he has a check in my name for 2.5 million dollars and that he needed my address to send the check and that my life will change for the better. He also said that all of the taxes on the money has already been paid. Now get this...all I had to do is send $250.00 to the Fed Ex so that he can send my check to me. I told him that i am Disabled and on a fixed income and can not afford the $250.00. He then told me...well don't I want to be rich? I told him that if the check is truely mine...take the $250.00 out of my check. He got really upset and told me that the check was already made out to me and could not take the 250 out of it. I told him look...if the money is mine than go ahead and send me my check without charging me! He hung up on me.
