$2.5 million & new car

BEWARE: David Goodman called my brother several times soliciting money for the "handling fee" to have the prizes delivered to him. He gave my brother the number [protected] to call saying he was legit. Of course this is a scam. First he requested $480 ... when my brother wouldn't give him that amount, he pressed until he finally got down to $68. While the amount of money is smaller, the scam is still the same. My brother wired the money to Hanover Jamaica, Wi. This was the part that save him ... he was able to get his money back including the fees since this city doesn't exist and no one picked up the money. The guy called today, still saying the money and vehicle is his, he just needed to RESEND the money but to a different number. I encouraged my brother to say no more. We also told Mr. Goodman (yeah right) that we are reporting him to the US Attorney General. Hopefully that will make him stop calling ...

won 3.5 million and a car

I have recieved 2 phone calls today from Winners International about the 3.5 million and a car that I have won. I hung up the first time after a few minutes and called the police. They did not take a compaint as no crime had been committed. I just (about 6 hours after the first one) recieved a second call and immediately asked them for thier Tax ID number as I would need this to recieve my funds and report them on my taxes. He (Mr. Carter) said that I would not have to report anything on my taxes to which I told him "then, this is illegal and if you call me again, I will have the police record all my phone calls and they would be caught". He promptly hung up on me.

    Agree with this consumer. I have been plagued with these calls for weeks. To my cell phone no less. They just do not give up. Maybe they think they can wear you down with enough useless information you will just believe them. I have played the game to get as much information as possible and to simply mess with them and yet 3 weeks later it starts again. Now I'm just p.o'd. How do you get them to stop calling you? Now they've given me a number for the "FTC head office". Because "they don't deal with the Better Business Bureau". When I called the number...I swear it was the same guy. Same pet names, same intonations in his voice; it was the same voice. He even gave me the information of where to send $750.00, i.e. the FTC, because that is where the money is to be faxed, to asure me that this is not a scam and it is for insurance and confimation of who I am. Te he he! I'm finding someone to report this to. Enough already.

    Absolutely. These dudes are relentless. They now yell at me and say they will continue to call me until I "claim" my prize--essentially that I need to pay 10% of the tax first. Then the "company" will pay the rest of the tax. I did the same thing. Tried to glean as much info as possible. No luck. Story line about the same. They have used 16 different numbers to call me. All this over last two weeks. I've reported all the numbers to the FTC. They advised to just hang up, and continue to update my complaint with new numbers. I also have blocked them on my cell phone for every number. I sometimes just "answer" and leave them hanging. Dog barking in background. Even had a woman call (twice). Idiots if they think they can intimidate me into "claiming" my prize! Oh and by the way, the name they are giving for who they are looking for isn't even close to mine, let alone the same gender. And their prize delivery folks are "sitting outside my residence as we speak." That means they've been sitting there for over a week. As for my residence? It's many states, far, far away, from where their delivery folks are sitting! Amazing... it's almost comical. If it wasn't annoying. As I've told them numerous times, I'm not interested! Keep it.

    Just got a call from Kingston JM (caller ID) Man says he is from"Winners International" asking me if I received a certified check from their sweepstakes. I said "Why are you calling me from Kingston Jamaica", "He said that was his name!" I asked '"Why didn't Winners International show up on my caller ID?", "I am representative from US Government, Kingston is my name." : "Your US Department did not show up on caller ID?" He started to challenge me. I interrupted and said "I want your email address and your US Department of Revenue ID number." He started to challenge me again. I then hung up. If you would like to call this fake scammer please do. His name is Kingston JM @ 1-876-857-8948

mr. michael washington & others

Letter sent saying I have won $2, 500, 000.00 in a drawing out of Las Vegas Nevada, but I need to send...

you won 3.5 million dollars! oh did I forget 2 mention all the strings attached? scam

I recieved 7 phone calls from a "private caller", one right after the other and since my phone # is blocked I...

B.S. sweepstakes

First thing in the morning I get a call from some random area coded number, its early, so I ignore it. Then, thirty minutes later the number calls again. I figure its some telemarketer, and I will save us both sometime by answering and telling him or her that I am not interested; and to take me off the calling list. Next thing I know im on the phone with a very pushy woman with a heavy accent. She told me I have won over 55, 000 us dollars and a new bmw. She proceeds to ask where I get my income from. Red flag number one.
When I asked why she would need to know, she claimed it had something to do with the 295 dollars in taxes I would have to pay to receive my winnings. Red flag number two. If you win something, you shouldnt have to pay for it. When I stated my thoughts on this, she proceeded to ask me about my religion and claimed that she was a woman of god, and would not be lying to fact, I was lucky! Many other people would desire to have these things! Then she also gave me a name and address of a banker that I would need to wire money to through united credit union or something. Red flag number three. If you are claiming to have a reputable business, dont hire people to try to manipulate your customers emotionally, or religiously. And for that matter, pretend I had said nothing and continue on with the bull crap sales pitch.
When I asked to speak to a manager, she did not put me on hold, but instead I heard muffled talking followed by a man introducing himself as joel peterson.
I expressed my concerns to this joel peterson, and asked for another number and address I could reach him at. He gave me the phone number to his "office" but said he was not allowed to give an address, just the same as he would not give my address to just anyone. Red flag number three.
I hung up and called his office. Sure enough he answered. Back to business: he gave me the same instructions as the lady, go to the bank, withdraw money, send it via this moneygram, to someone I never heard of, and was seemingly uninvolved with the business. I was also informed that, I was to tell nobody at the bank or at the moneygram place, of what was going on. I would loose over half of my winnings if I did! Red flag number four. I asked for the independant banker's information. I was denied my request.
I still was not convinced (at this point I wouldnt ever be. I was just screwing with them.). I told joel, and he started calling me all these pet names and telling me that he as well was a man of god, something about god and the devil were not the same. Somewhere in all that sweet talking, religious horse crap manipulation, he was also telling me that I simply must have all this done before noon (he asked me if I was all ready dressed), and that two fbi agents would be at my house when I return to escort me back to my bank. Red flags number five and six. Why does this man talk to me like I am a #ed child? And why would I need to be escorted for a check? Its not worth anything to anyone else.
I repeated that I wasnt buying it. Finally I was able to pry out of him the company's address. 303 carson las vegas. Mhm, no zip code was given for the independant banker to whom I was to wire money to, or the address of the company. I was also able to retain the "names" of the fbi agents that would be coming to escort me. Mark ashley, and james foster. If you ask me, it all seemed just a little too generic and the sparse information had to be extracted from him like a damned root canal. Red flag number seven.
In short, these scammers set themselves up. (they are calling me again as I type these words!) I will be informing everyone I know, as well as the fbi. Hey! Maybe I can tell mark ashley and james foster that they are involved in a scam!
I hope this has been helpful to anyone who was suspicious, and if youre ever unsure of something, be sure to check internet reviews.

5 million dollar winning

Tues. 10/20/09. I have received 3 phone calls in the last 2 days from a man named "Tony Malone" from Winners International in "Las Vegas, Nevada". He speaks with a pronounced foreign accent and is very hard to understand. I believe he is on a speaker phone. He informed me that I had won 5 million dollars and a BMW and asked if I owed the IRS any money. He said I was chosen based on my zip code. I asked him how much it would cost me to win this 5 million dollars and he said just $389.95. I told him we didn't have the money and give the 5 million to someone else. As typical with these phone calls, the number comes across as a private number and when you ask them, they won't give you a number to call them back. Please inform your relatives and friends, especially the elderly, to give them the number of your local police department. That will usually stop them or give them your lawyer's name and number.

Lottery Winning Scam

I have been receiving constant phone calls from someone name John Lee(Representative) and John Fisher...

wire money to them to receive my check

I have received phone calls for several day in a row, asking me to wire money to an agent in jamaica. The money is to cover taxes on money I have won. As soon as I give them the receipt code they will deliver my certified check to me. When I told them that I thought it was a scam and that I was reporting them to the police. They called me a liar saying that they were located in las vegas, nv and gave me a phone # to call their office. The first call I had won 10 million and they wanted a check fo $300.00. The second call I had won 5 million and wanted me to send $200.00. Today I received a third call from the president (mr. Davidson) I had won 2.5 million and would I please send $185.00. They are very persistent. After checking out the internet complaints, I think its a shame that we can't put these people in jail where they belong. I hope they stop calling me as i'm tired of the harassment.

    I just received my second call at work from this organization. They told me that my name was entered in a drawing every time I used my credit or debit card ot paid my utilities on time. They said they were in a truck on their way to my address which they in fact confirmed. They then proceeded to tell me that I just needed to pay the 1% tax on the funds and that I would then be cleared for delivery. I told them I was bridging in the police so that they could continue the conversation with me with a third party witness. Once I told them that, they started cursing and searing at me in french and then asked if I had seen the movie Scarface. They said that they were the person that Scarface was written about and that they were coming to my house and kill me and my wife. The number that they called from is 876 493 5982.

    I honestly don't know if this should be considered a real threat r not, but it sure is jarring to have someone call me at my place of work and threaten my family.

500,000 lottery winnings cost my mother in law 50,000

About 3 weeks ago, a jimmy cooper of cooper, cooper, and assoc. Began calling my mother in law. She kept this very secret and when I ran across a note she had left on the counter that stated she was transfering someone 5000.00 cash today we all began to worry. So we started listening to the phone calls, he called 20-30 times a day. We found out by this point she had already given them 40000.00 to pay federal insurance for her winnings. She got leary and began asking questions, so he had someone call from the "irs" stated they were dennis wise and badge number was a-10474. She has taken out loans and borrowed money from family and friends to pay this federal insurance hoping to get the check being held by two men at a hotel... Scam... We all wish we wouldve said something to her. Now she is out over $40, 000.00 (fourty thousand!!!). Is there anything we can do?

    I received a phone call today from "International Winner Sweepstakes". He said his name is Alfred Jones from Garland, TX and his phone number is 876.265.0746 and said I had won $50, 000 and he needed me to go to CVS Pharmacy or Walmart and purchase a "Greendot moneypak" reload card for $250. He said it is a scratch off card and I needed to be careful scratching it off. He said he would call me back to get the 4 numbers off the card, that it would act as a receipt. And then they would come to my house to give me my $50, 000. Immediately after I got off the phone, I looked this up on line and found multiple reports of these scams. Thank you everyone for posting your experiences for everybody else to be aware of.

    Got a call from a man who said he was calling from The Winners International, Nashville, Tennessee, . saying that I had won a large jackpot and he had a check to be delivered to me. I don't know how he got my name or phone number. He said that I needed to send him $15, 000 in processing fee. He called twice. How does one track down people like these!.

jon washington

I rieceved a call from a man named Jon Washington (with a Indian accent mind you) claiming to have a $250.000.00 dollar check, signed by Bank of America, and a 2009 xt Mercedeiz custom car for me. All I need to do was send $2, 999.21 via western union to him in order to claim my winnings. The point of western union for these people is so you have a reciept (with the ten digit number) for the "U.S. Marshall" to retrieve as proof that YOUR MONEY was sent to the scam guys. When I asked why could'nt I just send $50.00 (just enough to get the western union reciept) Mr. Washington began to stumble a little. Very little though. He told me they needed the monies to get to my address for delivery. He asked me to keep this matter confidential so no one would try to steal my money. I asked for a web-sit, he replied that (it was all jambed up right now). He also told me that he and the marshall where at the airport about to board a plane to bring me my winnings. I would love to put this information in the hands of the proper authorities but... (oh ye of little faith) Oh yea his number is [protected] and you can send your hard earned money to

    I have the exact same problem with Jon Washington. In fact he called me yesterday morning. This morning, I spoke to a new one named Mark Ashley.

    They say I have won $500, 000 and a 2010 Mercedes Bends.
    They want me to send them a lot of money also to get a receipt.

    Jon Washington keeps calling me. I have probably talked to him 5 times now. I tell him it's a scam and he says no it isn't.
    He, also, yells at me about it.

    I too would like to know where I can put in a complaint. Was also given a ticket number this morning by Mark.

    Well what did you do to get your money back or put theses people in prison? I'm wanting to know what we can do to get the ( FBI )involved to either catching the person with the phone or the person picking the money up, and getting a warrant to get the other people they are involved with. And there has to be some thing they can do to catch these people. And put them under the jail to pay restitution and interest on the money we have sent to these thief's.

5,500,000. winner

My mom got a call saying she won 5, 500, 000 all she had to do was go get a money order for 300. From money gram or western union and call the back. I called the police and they came right over. With the officer coaching me we called them back, we had the number from caller id [protected] - jamaica) they wanted the number on the money order (much like a check number) so they could verify that we got the money order. They said they would call me back. (the officer made up a number for me to give them) they called me again and said something was wrong with the number on the mo. Of course they could not verify it, it was made up they told me to return the mo and go to western union and get a mo from them. As of tonight they are comming tomorrow with 2 fbi agents to present the check. You gotta love it! I sure we will get more calls within the next few days. So remember tell your parents and grandparents you don't pay money to win money. I' glad my mom thought to call me or she would of been out 300.

    I have been harrassed by phone calls from "Winner's Internationals" out of Jamaica for several days and spent $300.00 ($100.00 each time) for my "supposed" winnings of $8.4 million dallars! Yes, I was excited untill they have now requested $650.00 for taxes before the check is delivered to my door. Now, I choose the time to look up all their information on the computer and here I am! What a fool I am! My story is the same as the others you have read here except I did not western Union them $650.00. My only income is a S.S check. And to think they were willing to take this! All monies were to be sent to a Shamera Hibbert in St. Jemes, Jamaica, W.I. OR Oneil Gayle, St. Jemes, Jamaica, W.I.
    Some of the names I spoke with were John White, cell # 876-446-4089, also 876-890-8723, Robert Washington, 876-287-6886, Many other that I don't remember but all had the same in common. Bad English!
    I called the Sheriff's office but they would not listen!
    Why is Winner's International allowed to continue and does anyone ever wim anything from them? How can they be stopped/

    My mother has been a victim. Winners International. They started calling on the 13th of Feb 2010. They told her she won 250, 000 and a Mercedes Benz. But they needed 79.99 shipping and handling. She did'nt believe them and hung up.

    Minutes later a man called posing as agent Butterfield from the FBI and they were doing a sting operation to catch these scammers. He told her to go ahead and send the 79.99 via Western Union and they would track it to find out where it went so they could catch them. He gave her his number, 1-876-310-9306 and told her to call if there was anymore calls from them.

    The next day they needed 300.00 for insurance. My mother called Butterfield right away, he said to go ahead and send the 300.00 via Western Union again and they would track it. My mom thinking she was doing a good deed!!.
    Shortly after that, agent Butterfield called and said, "we caught one", but they needed some more money sent via western union to track down the next scammer. She followed his order with 200.00 sent via western union.

    My poor mom answered the phone about 50 more times from different people from Jamaica for the next five days confirming her address and other personel info. They each told her she would recieve the certified check by Friday.
    Then a phone call from an Ann Grant saying she was with the IRS and needed state and federal taxes paid on the winnings. She said federal could be deducted from the check but she had to have the state taxes of 250.00.

    Well, this is when I got involved. I just stopped in to visit my mom and she told me all about what was going on. She was so happy. She was planning on room upgrades, a new kitchen, carpet, etc. We happily went to the local store to send a western union mo of 250.00.

    The man at the cash register showed us the transaction and the conversion to Jamaican dollars. It was over 22, 000.00 dollars! Whoa! I got home and imediatly googled all the names, winners international, the numbers, . etc. . I saw SCAM SCAM SCAM. My poor mom, she still has hope. We need to stop these people before they give someone a heart attack.

money scam

I have been going back and forth all day with these guys, from a company they call"winners international". They block their number as restricted. The first call the guy was very nice saying I had been selected to win 3.5million dollars and a 2009 mercades benz. He sad they were no catchs, gave my a package number and a phone number to call, I called the number they gave me their little sales pitch, told me 2 u. S marshalls and a fbi agent would be delivering my check to me, it sounded funny when the asked my what time my bank closed, I told them 5pm, he said they were scheduled to deliver my check at 4pm that day!!! All I had to do was cover the remaining 5% of the insurance that was $750.00, by sending them a moneygram, I started asking questions and I had them comfused, they told me they would have the fbi agent that was making the delivery call me to verify it was not a scam.. About a minute later my phone rung, from a restricted # the guy sounded just like all the other guys, he gave me a badge number and a little pitch to send the $750.00...

He wouldnt give my a phone number to call the fbi I finally hung up on him... They kelp calling I told the guy about the scam reports I had found on the internet and to stop calling, he called one more time and I told him if he called agian I would report all the information, the address he wanted the money sent to, to the authorites.. He hasnt called back yet...

Be carefully they make it sound good,

    i received a call today from these same people. They wanted to talk to my husband because he is a senior citizen and most likely thought he would be vunerable but they got me instead. The first man said he was calling as my husband was awarded $5.5 million dollars and a 2011 Mercedes Benz. First we had to go to Wal-mart and send a money gram for $185.00 to an attorney in Monett, Mosouri prior to delivering the check. He even gave me the address of the attorney of where the money was to be sent. Of course there was no phone number. The man I talked to first was named Bill White and then his supervisor was James Morgan. They were supposedly affiliated with AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, and Donald Trump! They said he won because his name was in a drawing since he had just purchased a new phone service. I told him that it wasn't my husband that made that purchase it was me. I also told him that when the prizes arrived at my door, I would then go to Wal-Mart and not before. I then heard the man say something to someone that was with him and then he hung up but not before I told him that I was reporting this as it was a scam and that I wrote it all down. He also informed me that I had to register with the attorney so the money would be registered as winnings with the FBI. This is one person he did not scam and hopefully more people don't fall victim for this. I would like to know how he got my phone number as it is unlisted and unpublished too. I never got the answer to that question. People be ware!!!

Resolved money, car, trips

Received phone call from Joe Marvin, with Winners International, telephone number [protected]. Joe Marvin told me I had won $750, 000.00, black BMW, two cruise tickets to anywhere I would like to go and two trips to Las Vegas. WOW! He asked if I had been notified of this win. When I answered no; he went into an explanation as to why not. I could hardly understand what he was saying so I questioned his name being Joe Marvin. He gave me a confirmation number and told me the check and car would be delivered tomorrow, BUT I had to pay a touring fee to receive the car. The touring fee would be $299.00. He wanted to know my address to which I replied, "it seems to me that if I won your contest you would know my address. He said I had to tell him my address to prove that I am the correct person. I told him he could not have my address and he told me he would be here tomorrow with my new car. I told him that he had better not come to my house because my neighbor is a policeman and he would be looking for black BMWs in the neighborhood. He told me not to worry because two FBI agents would be coming with him to my door.
I phoned the number that was on my caller ID and he answered Joe Marvin.

    Dear Sir,

    I got mail saying that, I have won the cash prize in the British International Lottery. The courier persons are asking me to pay the amount. Just by seeing a mail how can I believe you? Is it a fraud or not. If that mail is not fake why dont you pay for the courier charges. Every person will pay the courier charge once they get that money otherwise, we cannot go blind into that mail. Please give suggestion for this. I stay in India and its very difficult to come their and verify my winning.

    I dont need the full money, half of that is enough. But please pay with the courier, insurance and customs charges that will be useful to us. Please dont make us to dream to the extreme and drop from the top. This is my fullest request.

    Ref. Number: BTL/491OXI/04
