Scam Description

I got a call from someone claiming to be with Publisher’s Clearinghouse. They said I had won  $13 Million and a new Mercedes. They had me go buy $1,350 in Vanilla gift cards and give them the numbers. Then they wanted another $2,500 and I knew it had to be a scam. They kept me on the phone for over 6 hours that day!!!!
