Scam phone call??

AOeser

I just received a phone call from 615-200-0273 with a woman with an Asian accent saying i was chosen to attend some Southwest Airlines event in downtown Nashville.  For attending, I would receive 8 Southwest tickets.  She then handed my call over to a man with an Asian accent as a "manager".  I figure this is a scam but wanted to come to Southwest and see what the community said.  

I told them I thought it was a scam and they hung up.

Just received a similar call from 561-855-1395 about a Southwest Airlines event in Boca Raton (FL). This is 100% a scam. 

Scam phonecall from Arizona Number

Just received a phonecall from someone with a foreign accent inviting me to a Southwest open house in Scottsdale, Arizona, and wanted to give me 2 round-trip tickets. Sorry, nothing is free unless you win a contest! Started chatting with him because I am a SW member and live in Arizona AND Arizona is one of SW's hubs. But as soon as he wanted me to talk to a manager, I bailed on the call; it just did not feel right. Besides, as he was chatting I googled 'SW OPEN HOUSE SCAM' and found this forum. Call came from 602-680-8757 (AZ area code).
