Phone Call?
Has anyone ever received a phone call from a weird number such as 800-09 (says unknown) I missed it and hope it was not a sweeps win or a text call win

I received a couple spam calls from a number like that this month. Actually, one was an outright scam, claiming to be from Microsoft.

Not too long ago, I just missed a phone call from a number I didn't recognize, and it was a toll-free.
I called back, and the person said that they didn't call. Next month, there was a charge for $.80 on my phone bill!

Received calls from weird phone numbers such as 1234567890, 0000000000 and a few others. The calls were always about winning the lottery, or a travel package and the last one was about a virus in my computer. Lol! They're so obvious that they always make me sleepy....

And guess what? In case the scammers didn't know, all those numbers have been reported at http://www.callercenter.com already. Even if they haven't said anything yet, anybody would know who they are right away.
