Telecom Scam

I just received this today. I called to see what the deal was. They required that I made over 50k, I bring my spouse to an office at 1250

22nd Street NW, DC with two forms of ID. No Children. I would have to set through a 90 minute presentation. I felt this might be a scam, so I did a search on the phone number that I called on the internet and found Telecom Digest.

Message as follows ...


Please call me at 1-866-677-4100. I previously tried to contact you at

410xxxxxxx, but was unable to reach you. This is reference to an entry form you filled out, either on-line or at a major mall or movie theater. I actually have some decent news in regards to the Global Adventure and Ford Explorer contest. I have an address, claim number, and further details for you. Since all prizes are well over $500, I will need a few moments of your time to cover all related lottery-type information from procuring your prizes due to any tax issues on them.

Sincere congratulations!
