Got a call from this number earlier today, and they did not leave a message. I called back and got a message system that I won $100, or something like that. It also gave me an option to be placed on their do not call list (promptly disconnected me when I selected that option). When I pressed "1" to claim the reward, I was connected to a woman with a Mexican accent who both ignored me and yelled canned responses at me when I tried to nicely ask questions. Eventually I got a manager, Anthony, who said they were the Rewards Department at a company called Marketing Solutions. I was told they got my number from one of their "marketing affiliates", but they could not tell me who. They wanted me to pay $9.95 shipping to receive my reward (typical scam line). Anthony hung up on me when I asked to be placed on their do not call list.
Overall, I'm almost certain this is a scam, so I reported it to the FCC.
