butterzowey said: I've gotten 5 calls from these people now and the first two times they told me that i won a trip to florida, the first time was kind of funny because i don't often get telemarketer calls on my CELL PHONE!! But she went through my information, and when she got to my marrital status, she said I was listed as married. that's when I hung up on her.
Also the other number that I receive calls from is 912-275-7885 and 912-275-7416, 7887, 7440 same first six numbers. Did a reverse directory on the 7885 number and it is listed to a James Beck Jr.
Melanie Proton said: I have received several identical calls - and hung up. However, today I pressed 1 because the last 4#s of the SS# they gave were not correct. Neverheless I stil got a human being who stated that under federal law he had to confirm my identity before he could say why he was calling. He proceeded to ask for the first 5#s of my SS#. Under NY state law a person has to identify themselves and state why they are calling, so when I refused he started getting very aggressive. Finally, when he compared my phone # to my address (reverse lok up I guess), he admitted he had the "wrong person". Sounds lie a scam to me!!!
kristy said: I got the same reply from my craigslist posting. Said he was on his way to somewhere in Hawaii on his honeymoon and wanted to know my name and address so he could send me a certified check and his movers would be by to pick it up while he was on his honeymoon.
olga said: I also got a response from my graigslist add with a 206-984-0840 cell ph #.
As there was no direct reference to the subject matter in the add, I suspect it is a scam I decided not to call the number. I am not sure if my cell ph could be charged by dialing that number. Better to be safe than sorry.

bostonburns said: no call--e-mail responding to my ad on Craigs list...just a "poor soul" who has nothing else to do except respond to e-mails or make calls...just ignor it..I played his/her game and responded, with correcting his spelling and his/her "inquiry"....just delete or hang up....he/she needs a life! Sad!
