Default Congratulations, you won a free cruise

Received a telephone call this morning and it was a recorded message which went like this:

"Congratulations, you just won a free cruise, press 9 for more details."

As soon as I heard "press 9", I hung up.

As anybody else received such a call and pressed 9?

Bill

These surface on a regular basis. I don't talk to machines though. Hardly the first clue that it's a scam

I received a simular call too. I hung up on it . I got one that said I'd won airline tickets to anywhere in the US, I hung up on it also.

I have won so many free cruises lately, I am going to hardly be on land! I just hang-up too.
