Hi Lucy. First, JustAnswer automatically generates these requests for phone calls....there is no need for a call. We, as experts, have no control over those. But, I can help you online without the cost of a phone call. Second, what is being proposed to you is a scam. You haven't actually won anything; they're simply trying to scam you into paying them something you have no obligation to pay. Don't go anywhere and don't pay them a dime.

What to do nothing how can they scam old people that are struggling and get by with it
Lawyer: Richard, Attorney replied 7 months ago

They do this because it works. They scare older people into paying money they are not obligated to pay. You can file a formal complaint with the state's attorney general office, but make sure you don't pay these people anything.

I apologize for the delay in responding. I had a prescheduled meeting. Thanks for your patience!

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
