And the winner is...

So I've been getting these messages on my office phone saying that I won this bridal package and some perky woman keeps going "I can't wait to discuss the prizes in your package so please call me back at 555-5555 and we'll get that package out to you very soon. I am looking foward to talking with you and very excited about your win." I'm sure at the end she flipped her hair and did that smile as well. (Okay that wasn't very nice!) First of all, I don't remember signing up for any bridal packages and secondly, I don't believe I would have given out my work number. Nevertheless, it reminded me of a scam and I am refusing to call them back. What would you do?

Secondly, this week has just flown by. Dinner for my grandma was really nice...there were 12 of us and we had a great time. My mom made her a cake and we all ate and then enjoyed the wonderful Funfetti cake. My grandma loves the game SkipBo so I beat her twice in that game as well!

Yesterday, I had attended a "Children Come First" conference and it went well. I saw an excellent speaker on "Love and Logic" when parenting and dealing with children. It was very informative and I enjoyed his speech. He has four children of his own so he used some real experiences to tie in with his speech which I believe made the whole presentation believeable.

Today, I am just working and then heading back up to my parents (this time with fiance in tow) to help set up for the family reunion tomorrow. It's supposed to be 90 tomorrow so my relatives from FL will stop complaining about how "cold" it is up here. I do have some funny stories, but I think I'll save them for now. Any big plans this weekend?

Yeah, that sounds like a scam, but how would they get your work phone number?

Have fun at the reunion!!!

I'm almost positive it is a scam. I wouldn't return her call - and if you do, make sure you don't give them your credit card numbers. I did a post about something similar to this last week when it happened to Jake. You can find it here
