View Full Version : I need some advice

I have been gone on Christmas Vacation. When I returned home, I saw on my caller ID that Texas Instruments had called twice. I entered this Texas Instruments sweep:

Prize: $8,400 that winner can use toward college expenses.

official rules archive | Open to residents of the 50 United States & D.C. and Canada 13+

expires Friday, December 2, 2005 @ 11:59pm ETStarted 7/15/05 - Submitted 7/24/05

I really really really need the money for college.

What should I do? Do you think that they could have been calling about the sweepstakes entry? Has anyone else received calls from them, possibly just a telemarketing call? Should I call back the number on my caller ID?

Please Help!

are you sure that is the correct sweep? It expired in Dec. 2005

Did you go through all of your mail and e-mail? Did they try to contact you in another way?

Your right KPruitt39 , I meant that sweep. I went through all my e-mail. No contact that way. I just can't figure out why Texas Instruments would call me twice.

Here is what the website says when I go to it...

Hi. When I read the rules, it said that eprize is the admin of the sweeps. I would think that eprize would be the one to contact you, wouldn't you think? Maybe not, though.
