Who Called Me From 876-395-5341?
I received a call from 876-395-5341 this morning, 8-13-2013, at 9:30 AM CST, from a guy who claimed to be Bobby Roy and saying that I had won "megamillion" dollars or something like that (I could barely understand him.) and that because I had paid my bills on time to vendors like "WalMart, KMart, and CVS" that I was to receive money at 2:30 this afternoon...via UPS. He said that the "people where at the IRS office in Ocean Springs, MS at that moment and would be in my area at 2:30." After my asking a lot of questions to ferret out the scam, "Bobby" informed me that this was no "scam." After asking him questions over and over again, Bobby said that I had a package with a check for $255,000 due me...asked me questions about how far away was the nearest WalMart and other questions that I told him had no value as far as my winning monies. When I inquired about the prize money, he said it was 2nd place. I asked what first place was and he said "$ 1.5 million and a Mercedes."
When I asked where he was calling from at the beginning of our conversation, he said Washington, DC. So after our long discussion, I asked again and he repeated "Washington, DC." I then asked him, why did his number show up as a Jamaica telephone # if he was calling from DC. His reply was some sort of "bouncing off a satellite for better reception" crap. Having gone weary of the bull****, I just hung up. Geeze...I guess I missed out on my $ 255,000; however, in the event the check arrives at 2:30 today, I will gladly print a retraction...;)
The charges for that conversation will probably appear on my telephone bill next month!
876 Area Code Scam article copied from another scam alert site:
876, 809, 284, or 649 Area Code Scam
Beware long distance phone scam causes consumers to inadvertently incur high charges on their phone bills. Consumers usually receive a message telling them to call a phone number with an 809, 284, 649, or 876 area code in order to collect a prize, find out information about a sick relative, etc. The caller assumes the number is a typical three-digit U.S. area code; however, the caller is actually connected to a phone number outside the United States, often in Canada or the Caribbean, and charged international call rates. Unfortunately, consumers don't find out that they have been charged higher international call rates until they receive their bill.
Oh yeah. Somewhere in the telephone call from "Bobby Roy" he said I would have to pay 1% for the prize - $ 255.00 and that I would have to go to WalMart to get the money for them. I told him that was a lot of trouble for me...especially since I was the one who was "lucky" to win $ 255,000. Besides, I told him, I expected a tv crew and camera people to arrive at my door and give me the prize!!

The phone scam is going around again. Below are some of the details with a link to ATT’s website for more information.
We actually received a call last week from the 809 area code. The woman said ‘Hey, this is Karen . Sorry I missed you–get back to us quickly. I have something important to tell you.’ Then she repeated a phone number beginning with 809 We didn’t respond.
Then this week, we received the following e-mail:
Do Not DIAL AREA CODE 809, 284, AND 876
THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION
PROVIDED TO US BY AT
Today "Bobby Roy (or was it Wright) called me for some prize too. Poor English and ending all his sentences with "all right?" set up my bullSH** radar. I asked for the UPS tracking number. He said that my phone's caller ID had the number. I said no a package number that would let me go online and track the packages progress. he gave me number 3649. Yeah, right..... I told him that that wasn't enough information and needed the full number to track this package online to verify the shipment. He said he wasn't going to be able to give me any more information, I said... "Likewise buddy, 'er Bobby" and hung up. .......jerks..............
Just got a call from this number. Same story as the ones above. Hung up on him. It's a scam.
You can't win a lottery you havn't played. Also if you do have a winning ticket there is no way anyone would know you have it without "YOU" telling "THEM" that you have it.
I received the same call (although I won first place, woohoo!). I handled it the same as mentioned earlier; asked questions, wouldn't give any info. He tried to claim that my marital status, employment status, two forms of ID, etc. etc. are not personal info... What a piece of trash! The sad thing is, he's probably succeeded at this in the past, and will probably find another sucker (or worse, a desperate soul on a high-speed plunge to the bottom) to fall for it again. When I told him I'd give the info to the person delivering my substantial check, he hung up on me... the nerve of him. Oh well, so much for my 1.5 mil... Help spread the word about this scamming a$$hole (pardon the insinuation) so he can eventually be stopped.
