Scam Description

I received a mailing from Publishers Clearing House. I do not have their address. Mailing stated I won $150 million. There was a check enclosed. I called the phone number on the letter 929-695-2542. A recording came on to leave a message. I hung up without leaving a message. A man called me back. He asked if I was and said my name. I said yes. I started questioning him. Nobody gives away that kind of money. I know it is a scam.
