I watched a UK TV program on this. They gave an example where two crooks sit opposite each other answering phone calls from punters who think they’ve won a lottery. :rolleyes:
Both have the same script:
“European Sweepstakes, how can I help you? Certainly you have a winning ticket - let me pass you to our Claims Department.”
They now swap phones and continue:
“Claims Department … yes that’s right. Just give me your full bank details and we’ll pay in your winnings!”
I want a new pair of glasses, and a trip to Cancun with some of the ruins thrown in with a guide, then send me for a bit to New South Wales in Astralia. I’ve always wanted to see the Carpathian mountains, Germany, Britian, Ireland, Scotland, and Peru.
I won a car about ten years ago. I recieved the notification of my fabulous prize in the mail-- a postcard, actually. So, I decided to call the number and claim my prize. When I spoke to the representative, I learned that not only did I get the car, but also a sum of cash! Yippee!
“Aren’t you excited?” the rep asked me. He’d get my details in a moment, but first he wanted to tell me about what his company did. They sold vitamins, you see-- the most amazing, ground-breaking medically advanced vitamins out there, and I could get a year’s supply for only $600. And since they were giving me a car and the cash prize, you know . . .
“Sure, I’ll buy them!” I said cheerfully. “Deduct the sum right off the top of my winnings.”
He stammered for a moment, apparently never having met with such a response before and explained why he couldn’t do that. “No problem,” I said. “As soon as my check clears, I’ll send you the money right away.”
His demeanor changed to brisk officiousness. (Might as well reel in the line and cast again. This fish wasn’t bitin’.) He told me that a representative would arrive on Thursday with my check and we would go to the local dealership to pick out my car.
Every Thursday since then, I’ve kept an eye out for him.
