Radio Station's Cash Contest Uses Bad Numbers

Last week, the radio station I listen to in the mornings started a contest in which callers must guess a 4-digit "pin" that will open a "cash vault." Until this morning, only the first number had been guessed. That first number was "6." This morning, a lady called in and guessed both the second and the third numbers: both 6's! So, the first three numbers of the 4-digit "pin" are 666! I missed the lady's guess for the fourth number, but I heard a guess from a man that called in later. His guess was "7." I'm not sure, but I think that the lady who called in was guessing all 6's.

By the way, whoever guesses the correct "pin" will win $1,000! Wouldn't that be nice!
