Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. There is no such thing as Prudential Insurance insuring any winnings. A call to the real prudential insurance company would reveal there is no such insurance. Furthermore, when someone wins any prize, any fees or taxes due are taken from the winnings and are not paid in advance (regardless of the excuses these scam artists may try to give you). This situation you are describing is called an advance fee scam and there are no winnings.As far as names of people, they make up names and nobody is who they say they are and they use prepaid cell phones so they are not traceable. Do not pay them anything. The names are ***** ***** connected to any legitimate sweepstakes company we can find.
