So I just supposedly won 2.5 million dollars......

Anyone heard of The Worldwide Sweepstakes? They
are from Australia and they called me this morning to confirm and said
that I had to pay an insurance fee for $760 dollars to receive my money
just in case something were to happen to it while it was being
delivered to me. Scam?

hmmm.... I hope this isn't a serious question. But you can pay me the $760 since you're going to lose it either way.

Seriously? Don't you think they would take the fees out of the winnings?

Tell them to take the fee's out of the winnings and send you the rest of the money. I bet you 760 dollars they dont send you shit.

Yes this is totally legit but they gave you the wrong address to send the $$ to. I will pm you the correct name and address. Cashiers checks or money orders only please.

As an FYI - I am the Australian representative here in Chicago.

The call you received is legitimate; however, the $760 would not apply to you if you sent the insurance money to our Chicago office.

The insurance balance would just be $500 if sent to our Chicago office due to savings in not converting to Australian dollars.

Please PM me and I will look after the rest of the details for you.

Thanks mate,

Glenn

Ask them if you can send them $1520 and get $5mil instead.
