The consumer said she received a call from an unknown party claiming to be with U.S.A. Pal Service, who told her she qualified for a government program wherein she would receive a $500,000 check, $200,000 in cash and a BMW. All she would need to do is pay $255 for shipping and handling and the prizes would be hers.
