The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports today that hunters who try to call the number listed on materials with this year’s federal duck stamp may be surprised. The toll-free number takes them to a phone-sex service.
The correct phone number, 1-800-STAMP24, is for people wishing to order more duck stamps. However, a couple of numbers were transposed on the card, and the number listed is 1-800-872-6724 or 1-800-TRAMP24.
The incorrect number is listed on a card that accompanies the actual stamp, which is a painting of northern pintails.
The Star Tribune story says the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which offers the stamps, doesn’t plan to recall the stamps with the accompanying erroneous phone number. Making a change would be too costly, the Fish and Wildlife Service said.
