Watch out, scammers about!

Today I took a call from an unknown Geneva number. Don't normally, but I had time on my hands. Wonderful news. 'Carole' from Radio Mondiale FM told me I had won a prize worth 200CHF. All I have to do is call the customer service centre and give them my address for my prize to be sent.

1. The radio station doesnt exist.
2. A 10 min call to the 0901 number she gave me could cost up to 100 CHF.
3. The prize, of course, doesn't exist.
