She started talking about how since I was entered in the sweepstakes I was eligible to receive magazine subscriptions "free of charge"(she said this a few times) and listed off a couple popular magazines. Again I replied okay. She told me that she was going to turn me over to her supervisor to verify my credit card number for entry in the sweepstakes.
Before she finished I asked her if I was buying anything today and she said "Well, the magazines..." at which point I hung up. If I hadn't asked that I imagine they would have taken my credit card number down "to verify my sweepstakes entry" and then charged me for the magazines.
This woman was blatantly lying to me, I've filed a report with the Better Business Bureau(they have 33 complaints in the past 36 months for these cretins). This sort of practice must be illegal, but I guess I can't prove that they wouldn't have told me I was spending money after all.
Don't give out your credit card number over the phone unless you initiated the call!
