There was an example of this scam on the F-Secure weblog today. They actually tried to call the number in the scam:

Oh cool.....

But you know, spammers are make $billions every year because people are so stupid to believe that they won something they didn't participate. It doesn't even fix inside the common sense box that you won something that you didn't participate but still many people will believe it.
