please help .......real or not??????

Please call me at 1-866-677-4100. I previously tried to contact you at
1-410-533-5582, but was unable to reach you. This is reference to an entry form
you filled out, either on-line or at a major mall or movie theater.

I actually have some decent news in regards to the Grand Getaways and Ford
Explorer contest. I have an address, claim number, and further details for you.
Since all prizes are well over $500, I will need a few moments of your time to
cover all related lottery-type information from procuring your prizes due to any
tax issues on them.

Sincere congratulations!

Angry NME "PostGram"
I received a "PostGram" from NME (National Magazine Exchange) today. Didn't call, but researched what the deal was. Saw A LOT of post about how this is a scam to get you to buy magazines. Anyone know how to get off their mailing list? Or even a possible website?
I'm sick of getting these things in the mail.

Got an e mail this morning from CocaCola-Worldwide saying I was one of (12) 2nd prize winners in the Christmas Seasonal Promo. I called Coke and they say it is not theirs. They are investigating. Beware. Too bad the prize was wonderful.

Thumbs down its a scam- Global Travel and Ford Explorer
I just got the same one. They insist you bring a credit card or checkbook to the presentation to claim your prize. I though it was fishy. I said why they said the state uses that as state identification. I told her that was a lie, since i process employment verifications. I asked why i couldn't bring a license and passport. its a scam, is there is nothing to sell then why do they need your credit card????

but they make it tempting by saying at minimum you'll get a 27 in. flat screen tv in the form of a gift card from best buy.

i asked to be removed.

Scammers are now sending their "winning" notices via certified mail through the post office.

Angry Re ; GunnerClark reporting the spineless scams !!!
I am freakin really mad !!! Kudos to GunnerClark for being vigilant and promptly reporting those con-artists` with all the different AKAs` , Phony addresses and telephone numbers.!!!! Everybody.....just think...there are approx. 100,000 people who use this site. Think how horrible and disatrous it would be if everyone kept calling their toll-free numbers and tying them up and generally making the spineless bastards pay. With all these people we could do the job OURSELVES and take care of the problem. I am quite sure that hundreds ...maybe even thousands here at OLS have LOTS and LOTS of questions to ask the cowards. them up......and if you don`t understand call them again until you can understand them. Poor , Poor , babies....guess these TOUGH GUYS weren`t held enough by their mommies. How sad ?? And while everyone contacts the Attorney General for the particular state they reside in ..........let`s all hope that when convicted....they get a lot of lovin` in Prison !!!!!!!!!!!!
