Type dirty to me

(no subject)


Wow. First time someone's tried to scam me over the phone. Got a call without ID, which told me it'd be a telemarketer or something, and got a recording (in English) telling me that I had won a caribbean cruise, and to press nine to claim my prize.

Yeah, right. I just hung up, then googled for it. All I could find was about some scam that only affects places that need to dial nine to get an outside line.

Funny how this happened on the day I finally wrote and mailed the letter to cancel the service. Despite having been on the no-call list for about two years, I still get more telemarketer calls than anything else.
