There was a thread in the "news" section on this scam, but thought I'd add it over here:

I got hit with one last week.. I normally don't call back but DH has been so worried of me missing a win that he keeps after me to call back.. no harm since I am on Tracfone.. no wonder it came up with something about refusing to dial back since I pay for airtime and minutes and no one can charge me for the call! But others are not lucky and being charged when they call back.

Mine was on the list as (268) area code.

More info here:

Specifically, the BBB is warning that scammers are using the area codes:

268 (Antigua or Barbuda), 809 (Dominican Republic), 876 (Jamaica), 284 (British Virgin Islands) and 473 (Grenada).
