Caller name: Not given

Apparently this is a known scam "contest" caller identified on other sites as "pierre" indicates the recipient is a "winner" of a supposed $25,000 contest that he/she entered within the last year. Mention was made of the entry received, needing more information. I screen all my calls using an answer machine (not possible with voice mail). As soon as I heard mention of discussing entry details I became suspicious. I do not enter contests, only what I know to be legitimate sweepstakes.

Same exact call this morning, January 31st. This is their second call to me. I tried to return the last call and it rang for a long time........no answer. Obviously we haven't all won $50,000. That would sure be a great contest:)

We must be the luckiest bunch of people out there to have all won $50,000! LOL...at least we all do have something in common...common sense to check out such a ridiculous phone call before believing it. Must be a scam (Peter 866-861-6525).

Caller name: Twon Connor

Anonymous male voice left me a message from an unnamed company saying I had entered a sweepstakes to win $50,000 and they had good news for me. To get the good news, I would have to call them back at the 866 number. I became suspicious because the supposed company didn't identify itself at all, and the caller didn't even leave his name, although on my Caller ID the name was Twon Connor at 312-625-1414. I suspect he was calling to phish for info, so I didn't return the call.

Caller name: Peter

Peter has called our home twice today. Caller ID says private number. First time was at 5:00 pm EST and I was not home. He left a message that was exactly the same as the message he left you - exactly. Just now phone rang and again said Private Caller. I did not answer and this time no message but I'm sure it was him again. So I googled it and here I am typing this post. I am on the DNC registry - is there something specific I need to do to other then posting here? I really want to stop these scammers from placing these calls and it infuriates me that they thik they are above the law.

I have not entered any contests, nor do I give this number to anyone not in my family, I have a second phone that I use for anything that is not related to my special needs child. This phone is only used for Doctors and Care Givers.

Caller name: Bret Michaels, National Notification Department

"Bret Michaels" called from (312) 625-1424 with "good news" about $50,000 that I won in a contest that I entered "in the last 18 months". Said I should call back this 866 number. Just like everyone else.

Thing is that I still have the voice mail from last month from "Peter" with "Awards Notification Department" talking about the "very good news" for me about a $50,000 contest that I entered in the last year. This "Peter" person also called from a Chicago number -- (312) 625-1423.

Of course, the callers had exactly the same voice, and both wanted me to call them back at this same 866 number.

Not gonna happen ...
