Government agencies will never ask you to pay by wiring money. If someone insists you pay by wiring money, it’s a scam. Instead, report it to the Federal Trade Commission at ftc.gov/complaint or 1-877-FTC-HELP.
I am an intelligent woman who has had a stroke, is disabled, elderly and living on social security.
A second scenario happened to my father in law saying he won 9.5 million dollars.I emailed back the first emailer and I said if we pay this money what promise do I have that he will t run with the money, he said he won't because he is investing ,000 out of his own money and he knows him well. You say that someone you don't know sent you some papers and says you will get million dollars, if you first pay ,000.I don't know your family situation, but this sounds very similar to a scam when someone offers a large prize, but tells the "winner" she must first pay to get her "prize." After she pays, the "prize" vanishes.I said absolutely "no" it made no sense for me to send him money when I was the one in need.He said it was a "insurance" clause and if I wanted 5,000 dollars by tonight I would do just that.
