Ok, hey, just woke up again, so a quick update:

I have recieved no e-mail from them, with a fake newegg address or otherwise. I'd post the number, but it was a Private call.

How would they scam you with the shipping address alone? Maybe they're compiling a marketing list or something.

Ok, just contacted Newegg Customer Service to tell them. I called, told them what and when, and then he asked me: "What, specifically, did they tell you you had won?" I told him a Q9650, and he said: "Oh boy, alright, I know who to talk to." So...old scam? Big scam? *confuzzled*

I'm guessing it would have gone down like this:

Them: Hello, this is newegg, calling to inform you that you've won a feww Q9650! We just need your shipping address.

Me: Wow! Really?! Ok, here ya go! (shipping address)

Them: And now we just need your social security number and the security code on your credit card to verify that we are talking to the right person.

Me: Ok, here ya go.





Or so they planned.

Alrighty, newegg just called me back and asked a few more questions, and then, for my reporting of this incident, gave me 15 dollars off of my next order. *is happy*
