Scam Description

I was contacted and told I had won $50,000 on the Powerball. I never play the Powerball and I don’t have any tickets. The person on the other line said I had to pay taxes and I better get $500 to her ASAP or they were going to come and lock me up put me in jail and all of my family as well. She has since been harassing me over the phone and threatening me that they’re coming. I don’t know how she got my name or number. Because even if she has my ticket my name and number have never been associated with any winning ticket that I know of.
