Scam Description

Guy calls me, 04/13/2023, says his name is Dave Weatherman. That he was calling to let me know that I had $5.5 million dollars and a brand new 2023 Mercedes Benz. Get this from a year ago. Said that he was an agent from the Bureau of Fiscal Services. That my prize winnings were about to go into forfeiture. All I needed to do was pay the insurance fee of $2,500, that was totally refundable, when I was awarded my money on the following Monday, which would be 04/16/2023. Asked why they couldn’t take it out of my check, said some nonsense about the FBI blah blah blah. To good to be true. He even said he would have his secretary draw up an email for proof. Smh looked pretty legit, but I couldn’t find him anywhere on the web. Scam Scam Scam
