View Full Version : does this sound funny to you?

haven't called him back but sounds weird to me:


Please call me at 1-877-623-5226. I previously tried you at xxxxx, but was unable to reach you. This is in reference to the blue entry-form you filled out within the last few months, either on-line or at a major mall or movie theater. I actually have some decent news in regards to the Toshiba, Vacation Station, Lexus / Chevrolet contest. I have an address, a claim number, and further information for you. Since all prizes are well over $500, I_ll need a few minutes to cover all related lottery-type information from procuring your prize, to any taxes due on certain prizes.

Sincere Congratulations,

Chris Bogacz

p.s. I am only available from 9 _ 5 central. 11/9/2004

Its either a sales call or a time share pressure call...(especially if you filled something out in a mall).

Sounds like a scam to me also. If that is your real phone number, you should edit it out.

November 9th, 2004, 11:59am
Well I'd call anyway just to be sure.
I'd be too worried that I lost a big win if I didn't call to find out.
Good Luck! :gvibes:

sorry I'm new and stupid

The whole "subscription" business makes it sound fishy to me.

November 9th, 2004, 12:13pm
I would call because I would be curious. It is probably a scam. Good Luck and I hope it's a win!!

Sounds lika time share thing that you can sign up for in the malls

November 9th, 2004, 12:30pm
I got this exact same message....sounds fishy to me.

My Boyfriend use to get the same exact call once every month for 6 months. So we knew it was nothing he really won if their going to call for 6 months to try and give their prize away.

Someone already fixed it for you, probably one of the mods but just so you know for the future I'll let you know.
Just go back to your original post and at the bottom right corner you'll see edit, just click on that then just take out the numbers or whatever you'd like to change.

I think I'd call too, just in case, and if they start a sales speel I'd politely interupt and ask if you won a prize.

When I first read your post I thought it sounded familiar. Someone else had this same type of situation not too long ago.


I don't know if they found out who it was though. Hope this helps.

I found this thread, too. Its a time share.


No thanks! Oh well.
