The folowing might have to do with your article. I got an e-mail from
someone claiming to have received my entry to a contest, they gave me
a toll free number; 866-677-4100. The reason given was they needed to
discuss tax issues on my prize that I had one. To me that sounds like
they either want a credit card number or my Social Security number.
Either way ,they will not get that from me.

I think all the readers to the Digest should call the above number and
find out what the prize is, and make sure you also help your local
payphone operator.

I fowarded a copy to the FTC, don't hold much hope to them doing much.
