Caller with a common American name like "Murphy", with a thick accent told me the FTC is awarding me $850,000 per an online raffle I was entered in for "having good credit". The phone number on my caller I.D. stated "Jamaica" even though the area code is not from Jamaica. I didn’t let him get far enough to instruct me how I should send the probable "fees" involved before I can be sent the winnings.
