Ed said: I was called on 8-30 to say I had won $785,000 from Publishers Clearing House, but before I could get it I had to pay $600 in taxes. I was told call him (Michael Collins) back and told later to call him back at 8:30 this morning. He asked questions about how much money I had now or had ever had. He asked various other questions. Of course, I did not call him back this morning.
g-man said: Weird call from this number today, they left Voicemail re consumer satisfaction on an Amazon purchase for mobile adaptive and ergonomic hardware purchased a few months ago.....I suppose if I leave feedback on amazon they will stop calling.
I wonder if this is the new number mining method for foreign country's to have merchandise on Amazon then they get access to phone numbers....
If that the case then I will only start buying items sold, fulfilled and shipped by Amazon.

I also received 2 others back to back at the same time & them too blank. I think they're all in the same boat working together.

Area code might be Louisiana, but the call is coming from Dayton Ohio (traced)
I received 3 text messages back to back at the same time. This is why I think these other 2 listed below are related to this one
irritated said: Received a call from this number. They asked for someone I did not know. When I told her that she rudely said " OH MY GOD!" then hung up on me. They call at least 10 times a day.

Jemma said: Were told that we had won $180 000 USD in a competition. The two cards came as scratchies and one said thank you while the other said we had won second prize. It seemed too good to be true so we held off and found that many scams get you to ring a phone number and then charge you for it. The area code seems dodgy so we haven't rung the phone number so we are waiting to see if anyone else has received something similar to us to see what they think. The company looks fake too as they are apparently celebrating their 12th anniversary but no review about them exists anywhere online.
If it is a scam, kudos to the scammers as it is very well presented they have a website and everything that looks very professional and the English was very good. We were almost convinced for a few minutes but it seems too good to be true.
