They just called back, this time as the Las Vegas office of Megger Mirrions. (Mega Millions)
Hard to understand his Pakistani accent, but "Dave" helped explain that in order to collect my $3.5 Million dollar prize (..and New Car!! ) that I would just have to hop my happy a$$ on over to my local Wal-Mart and buy me a (you guessed it!! ) Green Dot Pre-Paid Money Card!!!!!!
All it would cost me for my shipping and taxes was a measly $499 - naturally they couldn't take this fee out of my winnings. Naturally! There weren't any.
Stunned him when I told him I would just pop on down to Las Vegas and meet them in person - since I was only an hour away!
Then the stammering and back peddling began. Well, you can't do it in person, there are rules, we can't do this and that. Blah Blah Blah.
I finally told "Dave" that no one 'Registers' for the Mega-Millions - it's a lottery. There would be NO WAY to call a winner since all they have is the winning ticket numbers - they're doing good just to tell you what store sold the winning ticket.
What a moron.
Some cold calling boiler room investment operation.
Looking for the Business Owner. Wow. How original.
