My poor mom…she had never heard of the Winner’s International Sweepstakes. Friday she gets this voicemail about being secretly entered into a sweepstakes and they say she’s won $2.5 million! Of course my mom…she thinks she said enough Hail Mary’s this time to really count…calls me and is hysterically screaming about this $2.5 million.
I sadly explain to her what this scam is all about…they tell you that you’ve won all this money, then ask you to make some “donation” or “consulation fee” to collect your winnings. How does anybody NOT see this scam? “Send us money, and we’ll send you money.” Really??? But what’s worse: these telemarketers keep harassing her!
They leave at least 2-3 voicemails EVERY DAY asking her to claim her “million dollar prize.” It’s starting to get really annoying. Leave us alone Winner’s International and go find someone else to scam!!
