"Sir, this is publisher's clearing house. This is a courtesy call to tell you that you've been selected in a finalist for the drawing on October 30th. The grand prize for this drawing is $50,000. I wanted to offer my congratulations for that."
"Um, thank you. Oh.. can I ask how many people are selected as finalists?"
"I don't have that information"
"No, sir. I don't know at all."
"Well, okay. Thank you again."
(They disconnected abruptly at that point)
