Interaction with the caller “will probably lead to more unwanted calls,” the Federal Trade Commission states.
Make a note of the number and report it to consumercomplaints.fcc.gov/hc/en-us, complaints.donotcall.gov/complaint/complaintcheck.aspx or call 888-225-5322.
You might still receive calls from “political organizations, charities, telephone surveyors or companies with which a consumer has an existing business relationship,” the FTC states.
Q: I heard that a contestant won “Jeopardy!” with just $1 several years ago. If so, how did that happen?
—Frank Burnette, Decatur
A: Darryl Scott won a 1993 show with $1 after all three contestants missed the Final Jeopardy question.
Scott went into Final Jeopardy with $8,201 and a $1 lead over the second-place contestant, according to j-archive.com, a website that archives “Jeopardy!” shows and questions.
The other contestants wagered all their money and Scott bet all except for $1.
There have been two $1 winners on “Celebrity Jeopardy!.”
Actor Benjamin Salisbury won a 1997 episode and soccer player Brandi Chastain won in 2001.
