They sent me a letter in the mail saying i am eligible in the 1,1000,000,00 sweepstakes. And that i am urged to call (1-800-235-9764) by march 29,2012. they wanted me to confirm my address and provide my prize entry number. while on the phone, i was asked what i would do with the money and ect.. this later lead me to another person who asked me when my credit card would expire. After that question, i became a little suspicious. The letter sent to me in the mail is signed by " E.Wright"

  • Similar experience as March 12, 2012 entry. Urged to call (1-800-235-9764) by march 29,2012. I was asked if I had any credit cards - this got my attention. They told me I had been selected to receive a man's and a woman's watch with a diamond at the 12 o'clock position. All I had to do was select 3 magazines from a list of 20 or so. Having had a similar come on from someone purporting to be from Publisher's Clearing House; I said no I'm not doing that and hung up as the woman was going on and on about the beautiful watches I would receive. My letter was also signed by "E.Wright", whoever that may be.
    If you receive a letter offering you a prize of 1,100,000.00 Put it in your paper recycling immediately. Do not be tempted to call the 800 number! This a total scam to get credit card numbers.

  • I called the number to see what exactly it was the first thing they do is ask for the ID # unaware that they would automatically enter u in after telling them the number she started to tell me about the watch and magazines for $1.29 per week I declined and she then continued to read off dozens more names to chose from again I declined and hung up I didn't give a card number or any other information but they had my name address and zip code not sure how they got this information but now because I called I am worried this scam has got me even after I declined is there anything I can do to protect my identity
