Someone called claiming that we had won the Austrailian Lottery. This time I answered the phone. They told me that they were a company representing the Austrailian Lottery and we won 2.5 million dollars and all we had to do was send them $650 for insurance on the check that it was going to be coming Fed Ex. Instead of giving the money I asked a list of questions. They said that they were in Jamaica.
1) Why do they need $650 dollars from me for insurance
2) The name of their company
3) How are they listed with the Better Buisiness Beauro
They again told me that the money was for insurance on the check. They game me the name of their company. Then they told me that there is no American BBB in Jamaica.
They are listed with they European Buisiness Beauro So I asked;
4) what is the phone number to the EBB
5) What is the phone number to the Austrailian Lottery
They told me that the company didn't want their number givin out. They gave me a number to the EBB. I used reverse look up on the internet and it came up with no known number.
I asked them for their number ( the caller id listed no known name and no known number ) they gave me a number and it to came up as nothing on the reverse look up.
I went round and round with the persone on the other end of the phone. She finally told me that I was just being difficult. I wished them a merry Christmas and told them that I would call them back in a couple of days, after I checked their company out.
Lets face it. All legitimate companies will have a name and phone number pop up on the caller id. Lottery companies have no problem with you calling them. Most of all I'm not difficult, I'm not sending someone $650 dollars to insure something that I haven't fully checked out first. There were other questions I asked, I just can't quite remember all of them.
I still get no name no number on the caller id. but they hang up on me. If my wife answers they'll want to talk to her. Go figure.
Then you'll never be happy with what you get...
