Good Evening All!
I am glad I found this post. Because just had an incident with these people Yesterday, Thurs June 16 2011. Gave a call saying I've won 1 million dollars, pretty nice right? haha. Well the guy begins to leave a message on the answering machine, so decided to intercept the call and talk. Guy claims he's from American Shopping Network telling me I won 1 million dollars ( in his broken english ). Sounded like he was in a wind tunnel. So he's going on and on about how this is legit and I won this money. Then he tells me that the money will be shipped via UPS to my house. Next he tells me that the IRS wants 1% of the money I apparently won, which he claims is 195 dollars. Ok bulls**t. The I ask what his name is. He says John White. Definitely not his name. Then he goes on to he needs me to go to a Western Union and wire him the 195 dollars. I'm like yeah ok whatever. He's like is there one close to you? Im like yeah. He says can you get there before the UPS truck brings your money? Im like yeah whatever, I said oh by the way, I have a friend who is a cop that will be going with me. He's like ok fine. Next he's like oh well can I have your cell number so I can call you when you get to the Western Union? I'm like no sorry. He 's like well I have to tell you where to send the money. I 'm like ok, well you can tell me right now? All of a sudden, another guy gets on the phone, he begins to spell out his name... J-E-R-R I'm like stop right there...whats your name? He's like Jerry Mouser. I asked you what your name is not spell it out...I can spell Jerry! Next thing the other indian sounding guy gets back on, I'm like who was that? He goes who? I said I was just talking to some guy named Jerry Mouser. Then he says the money has to be wired to Fort Worth Texas, and begins to spell it out...F-O-R-T..Im like I can spell you stupid f**k! I said look, I think if I won money, the IRS would want more then 195 dollars from me. He's like well if you dont send this money, the agents at the border are going to stop with all this money in the car! I'm like what are you talking about? What agents and what border? You just said UPS was bringing me the money. Now I was getting pissed and starting yelling at hm over the phone, because he kept over talking me. So finally I said, don't you ever call me again, before it gets turned over the authorities. Slammed the phone down.
Thought you all might enjoy this experience, after I read all of your and soon realized these we the same people, just with a different scheme.
