I got this in my catcher today. I have X'd out part of the phone number for the following reasons:
1. If you call it from your home phone, you will give up your phone number even if you have caller ID blocked.
2. Not all 800 numbers are "toll free".
3. I don't want people going to payphones to "run up" the scammer's bill; we're not here to break any laws (that's the lad's job).
My reason for posting this is that I've never seen it before and I wanted to know if anyone else has.

I've heard about it, however I don't recall seeing it in any of my inboxes...
It's referred to as "Vishing" (Phone/Voice Phishing)... It's been around for the last few years... here are a few links on the topic:
@@Captain Pike I got the same message today as well. I have been exchanging emails and phone calls with security at Schlumberger Credit Union over this today. Orginially it was the 800 harvesting pins. Last I heard the 800 number was now an answering service. I received an email a couple hours ago that this whole scam was effectively dead.
This is a departure from the normal phishing email. There are many variations on this that could hide the scammer making them a lot harder to trace than the 800 number they used.
