Not sure if this is a correct reddit. It looks like my phone number has been leaked somewhere and I 'won $5000 dollars' last week according to one call (yeah, right). Today I get a different voicemail from another number that I need to call them immediately ('leave your work aside') to discuss 'the matter' as otherwise they will need 'take legal action against me'.
My fraud alarm bells have rang the bells and on one hand I think I should just ignore it. After all I presume a legitimate claims would rather use more formal phase than 'leave your work aside', present themselves on who they are and why they are calling ("I'm calling on behalf of ________ to discuss ________"). They would also try to contact by post as well. The google of the phone number does not give any information.
On the other hand I'm quite nervous about legal matters and I try to follow letter of the law to the t. In the unlikely situation that this is legitimate do I lose anything if I claim that I thought this is a fraud in good faith and that's why I haven't responded?
EDIT I contacted PD and while they haven't took the report as I wasn't victim they confirmed that no legitimate business would do it over the phone.
