Customer Question

I was contacted by Atty Golstein of Lawson and Associates
JA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer:*****
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.
Customer: New York, NY
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Lawyer should know?
Customer: Said I won 1.2 million but I need to post a temporary insurance bond of 1%
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
Customer: Then they will deliver the money within 48 hours. Is this a scam?

This is unfortunately a common scam. Contest winners never need to pay anything to collect a prize.

Insurance is part of a company's overhead, paid by them, before they decide how much of a prize to award.
