Bahamas Scam

I had a phone call on my mobile about an hour ago, they told me I won a holiday to the Bahamas. I spoke to one man who was hard to understand then I spoke to Michael, who asked for my credit card expiry date and number on the card. At no stage did he ask for the name on the card or the verification number on the back of the card. I gave him what he asked for and he put me back on to the first man I spoke to. They did know my email address somehow. He then gave me the website address and a phone number to ring to verify, which is 1800 861 0854, as soon as I hung up, I tried this phone number to be advised that the number I rang wasn't connected and to please check the number before dialling again. I then went online to check out the web address and found that it was a SCAM. I immediately went down to the bank and withdrew as much as I could out of my account, then came back home and rang my bank lost/stolen cards phone number. There SCAM sort of worked but I definately will have the last laugh.

I never, ever give out my card details like that; don't care WHO they say they are!
Curious as to why you would give out your details if you'd apparently WON the trip anyways! :o
Hope you have nothing in your account now & I'd be changing for a new one ASAP.
They can get your email from many places!
Good luck, hope they don't get anything from you!
