A Los Alamos woman reported this morning she received a telephone call at her home from a man asking for money who gave his name as Mark Gibson.
He told her she had won a large amount of money that would be delivered to her home in “Los Alamos, New Jersey” if only she sent him a much smaller amount of money through Western Union or Money Gram, for shipping and handling and IRS fees.
The man had a heavy accent and a static-filled phone line.
He told her to send the money to:
304 E 10th St.
Oakboro, NC 28129
He told her the contact information for his company was:
303 Carson St.
Las Vegas, NV 88426
When she told him she was going to report his scam, he made obscene and threatening comments to her.
Los Alamos police advise anyone receiving a request for money over the telephone, e-mail or door-to-door to hang up, delete or shut the door.
No legitimate organization will request money in this manner.
