I got a call from # 727-683-1119 tonight, the caller ID said it the name was Florida. A woman said I had won free vouchers for a 100 $ worth of gas and 400 $ of air fair. She said she would send the package out to me with my vouchers for a 2 week trial, after that it would be 19.95 a month. I told her I was not interested but she persisted very hard for me to listen to her. She ask to verify my info and asked the name of my bank I gave it to her, she then asked me to get a check from that bank and she asked if the numbers in the bottom left read the routing # she had for the bank. It was but I told her they were not and she said oh that's funny it should be that, well ok i can still verify you, she told me to read off the numbers just to the right of those numbers (those being the acct number). That's when i hung upon her. I called the number back and got a man that answered,,he used my name, it dawned on me my name was on his caller id. I told him he was a scam and i was going to report him. He said go right ahead. I explained the sleazy way they tried to get my acct info, He said there's no law against that,. I gave him a few choice words and he asked me what my acct number was, i hung up. As soon as they asked formy acct info i knew it was a scam. They were very sly about it, asking small questions at a time, not asking for to much at atime and talking about the prizes and such to distract you.

AUTHOR: Dave - (U.S.A.)

I also wanted to add they said i had won these vouches because i had bought something with my bank acct online. Then they said they got my info from a list, nothing they said made any sense to me. Also when i asked why they needed my acct info at this point, they said to verify i had a valued acct. I said i would like to review the package and then if i was not interested i would just do nothing, calling to cancel and so forth, since i did win the vouches and she said those were mine no matter what. She still insisted that they could not send the vouches without know if i had a valued acct. They try to keep you on the phone as long as they can, the longer a scammer keeps you on the phone the better the chance they can hook you. If you get a call like this,do yourself a favor, just hang up, the only thing you'll be missing is a lot of bull and not the money in your account.
