Contacted me in Dec 2009 looking for me to put tours for him.He mentioned that he is a start up and needs help so i gave him a break on price per tour and only asked for $2500 deposit instead of $5k.We start calling on the project in April 2010.Here is how he operates takes the tours sells them and reports them as NQ or no show.Always late on payment on the lucky ones reported as Qualified Red Flag right there, so i slow calling to stay under deposit and i requested payment on the ones that were sales or tours reported as nq or no show and he refuses payment.As of that point he owed 3k so i told him i will hold the deposit as payment and he would have to pay me the remaining $500.00 wich i have yet to see.$500 is not a big deal its the principal.Watch out for this guy he uses some good names in the industry as referals to get call centers to do marketing for him

back in late july lieutenant patterson and greg patterson ask if I would help him get a merchant account
and since we were friend's I said I would help and I told him I don't have any money but I have an excellent credit rating,well I had until I let him talk me into using my credit card to help with the business. He told me my creit card was only for show and would never be charged,but that wasn't the case,the minute my credit card "which was suppose to be only for show" got charged for a bunch of back charges and late bill and within 3 days he manage to put over 1600.00 dollars of charges on my card, and when I confronted him he swore that he would pay for the charges,but that never happened!!!!! since,his failure to uphold his word I'm over 4000.00 dollars in debt on this credit card and to make matters even worst I've had to go into our pension fund to try to make my credit card payment's because I trusted him to be a man of his word and now I'm left with over 4000.00 my interest rate on my credit card has been raised,and has lead to having my card cancel.I fear to see want damage it has done to my credit rating!!! I may never see my money and the years I spent repairing my credit was wiped out in 3months time. because of his lack of respect and disregard for anyone alongs as he get's want he want,which make' this a poor investment

David Meer May 11th, 2012
I received a call from Jeff of the prize distribution center for a whole week saying that i won but gave no name of the person that won and you could not understand when we entered the contest, his muffled voice sounded like osub,whatever year that was! I called and got no answer. Thanks, for the comments on this page, lets spread the word, so that these people will caught. Nov.2011 Beware!!!!!! That number is 866-313-0311
COMPLAINT PRIZE DISTRIBUTION CENTER
I received a call from phone number 708-279-7104
from Richard Hugh of Prize Distribution Center. He left me a voice mail saying; "Hi this is Richard Hugh with the Prize Distribution Center calling in regards to the contest that was entered sometime back in hopes of winning our brand new SUV. Well the contest is officially over we are looking at your entry we have very good news for you what we need you to do is give us a buzz toll free here in the office as soon as possible the number is 1-866-430-3177
again that's toll free 1-866-430-3177
we'll look forward to hearing from you soon and congratulation." When I called the female answering did not say her name or the company name but said rudely "hold a minute!" and put me on hold. When this female got back on the line she said rudely "can I help you?" I said; “yes, I got a voice mail to call this number due to a contest entry and I’d like to know what contest entry because I didn't put in an entry for any contest," The female immediately got spitefully loud saying that I put in an entry 22 months ago she stated my name and that I am a U.S. Citizen living in Clark County and asked, Are you not”? I asked if there was anyone else I could talk to because I don’t like your attitude?” The female hung up on me. I called back to talk to a Supervisor and the Male who answered hung up on me as soon as I asked to speak to a Supervisor. I kept calling back asking to speak to a Supervisor and they kept either hanging up on me or would play like they were a Supervisor as to mock me and would give me several different names (fake I'm sure) Michael Jones, Calvin Smith, Tony Watson. This character calling himself Calvin Smith and saying he is the Supervisor, Manager, and the Owner said; " It will be a cold day in hell before I'll ever get any information about this company or their address to write a complaint letter to or about and told me to stop calling them.

clyde wilcox Jul 25th, 2011
Same here ...Call from Richard that I won a Lincoln Navigator. Call from 708-279-7646
to call 800-301-3436
. We all know this is a scam. I feel sorry for the people who get hooked.
1-6-11 Received message from Susan with Prize Distribution Office of winning a navigator or $45,000. Instructions to call Blake the director at 800-428-9083
. Caller ID showed call from TRR Marketing 773-629-4216
Same thing here - I won a Navigator! I must have horseshoe somewhere on me because I won an all expense paid trip on Tuesday and a Navigator on Thursday!!! Lucky me!
If any of you read Mike's comments. Be cautious. He probably works for the scammers.
Do not answer calls from this number. These people are running a complete scam. I have "won" about 15 navigators now. What a joke. When I asked to me removed from their call list, the guy responded "moron, moron, moron.
I might be a country girl but I got sense enough to know these butt holes are soooooooooooooo stupid to think we will believe that scam...yeah right you won a BIg fancy car like that but ya wont answer the phone. BUtt head.
Georgia girl Dec 12th, 2010
GOT A CALL FROM 1-800=428=9083. KNEW IT HAD TO BE A SCAM SINCE I NEVER WIN ANYTHING ANYWAY. THIS WAS SUPPOSEDLY FROM FRYS OR PRIZE DISTRIBUTION CENTER. ASK FOR BLAKE. LEAVE NAME AND STATE AND THEY WILL CALL BACK. CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT CALL SO THAT I CAN PLAY MY GAMES WITH THEM. P.S. I DON'T WANT THE CAR, SO SEND ME THE $45,000 CASH......
ANOTHER WINNER Dec 04th, 2010
glad i checked same ole scam another day these guys need to spend time in arabian jails
Well I thank God for all of you all thats out there to help prevent things like this from happening to good people. I too, recieved a call from Phil with Prize Distribution Center. I will not be calling back after reading all of your comments. Thanks again and God bless you all! We can only win the war against these type of people if we continue to ban together.
I had been told that I had won a Lincoln navigator. I went to Everett, Washington to the naval base, and met my prize - the navigator of the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln. Neither of us is gay, so I introduced him to my sister and they're getting married! Oh, and I sold the aircraft carrier to the Tanzanian Navy for $1 billion! Call and claim your prize today! And don't mess with Tanzania, baby!
Same deal as Sam except I also received a all expenses paid trip around the world and my choice of either John Stamos or Brad Pitt as a travelling companion (I chose John Stamos)! We had such a great time and John even proposed (we're getting married after he finishing with Glee this season).
I got the call from Phil at the Prize Dist. Center. I called back and went down to the required meeting place. Picked a scratch off and won the Navigator. It comes loaded with every option. After driving around in my new Lincoln, I stopped to fill with gas. As it was filling I noticed a package in the back. In the package was $3 million in unmarked bills. As a bonus they included a Playboy Playmate with the car. We plan to be married in the spring. I guess I am one of the lucky ones. ;)
Returned call 10/18/10 I received 4 days prior from Bill/Prize Distribution Center/1-800-301-3436
. First asked my name & state by Pam--put on hold 5 mins--then another woman asked if I was single/married, then if I was between 18 & 68. When I said no, she commented I had such a young voice, which if you talked with me you would know that's a lie--then if I lived alone and if I had a major credit card. Since I do enter contests and could finally get a word in, her answers to my questions was it was an entry that I probably wouldn't be aware of as it was an automatic entry from SOMEWHERE. They would be having the final drawing (for a Lincoln or $45,000) at the end of December and I would be notified by a phone call or certified letter thereafter. If WHOEVER would spend as much time planning positive things in life, our world would be a much better place in which to live.

I got a phone call from bill telling me I won a lincoln navigator. I couldnt remember a contest I entered but I figure what the hell, I'll call. The phone number was 800-301-3436
. I then started looking on the internet and surprise surprise most of you won my navigator too. Which one of you have my navigator? haha This sounds like some kid playing around. If were lucky they will get locked up and some one takes thier virginity. :)
I called the number on my caller id-busy- called again on redial and must have hit it just right. the actual call is coming from an automatic dialer-lots of navigators given away!!
I received a phone call from 312-488-1852
today a man named Bill Bentley is what showed up on caller ID but was told to call back 1-800-301-3436
, I had talked to some one back in February about winning a lincoln navigator so I called the number back, my husband said hell its worth at least calling for a navigator. When I called back they asked my age, I gave them the same age I had last time, 23, and they said "oh we will take your name out of our entries, congratulations." haha
Holy crap I won the Navigator too! Any place that calls themselves "The Prize Distribution Center" sounds my internal alarm...it's just a center...and they employ hundreds of people, and are in the business of giving things away! Wheee! Great business model. Anyway, Bill left me a message too from 312-962-0225
) and asked that I call him back at 800-301-3436
), said he "had very good news". Of course I had to call back before he ran out of Navigators, and I asked for the company website, and was reading them reviews from THIS site. The lady told me I had forfieted my entry by not giving her my personal info. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
I got a phone call about 6 weeks ago from bill and about two other men and they all congradulated me on winning something that i had entered for, when i called back they wanted some personal information and of course i was not going to give it out and i went and blocked their number from my phone because they continued to call after i asked them not to. Now they are calling blocked saying i won a lincoln navagator
I too received a call from Phil,1-800-301-3436
, the prize distribution center. He said the contest was over and congratulations. So I called just to see what the deal was. The woman- Sara Kelly who answered wanted to confirm info. Told me that she would put my name in the final drawing for the lincoln or other prizes. What the hell the contest was over right? They sure need to get their story straight. I sure was hoping to win that fridge from budweiser, i know I entered that one!
I got the call from Jim at prize dist. center about a contest that I "suposedly" at entered sometime back. He just needed to confirm some personal info about me ,I decided after a short conversation that it was a scam.I then ended the call.
I got the call from Jim at PRize Dis. Ctr - same as these other people. I was excited at first because I HAD entered a sweeps about 6 months ago for an SUV but couldn't remember which one. I always expect scams so I checked here and sure enough, others have gotten the exact worded message i got from Jim. Phooey!
Who just got a call from the Prize Distribution Center and was asked to call back at 866-313-0311
to claim my prize. I called...just a recording and to leave a message. I didn't leave a message. I had my 30 seconds of fame back in the 80's on a national game show so I don't think I will be that lucky again.
YourAverageJane Aug 08th, 2010
I have had two calls from "Bill" at Prize Distribution Center 312-625-1467
in Illinois telling me I had won a 20011 Lincoin Navigator and to call 1-800-301-3436
to claim my prize. I called this number and was told to hold while they checked to see what prize I had won. They stayed on hold for a very short time then hung up on me.
i got a messege from a guy named bill he told i won a 2011 lincon navigator
5/24/10 "Bill" same thing...said "had very good news" about a contest I had entered to win a Lincoln Navigator. funny I don't remember entering any contest. Left message to call 1-800-301-3436
Gee I guess the cadi IS gone, "Bill" is now saying it's a lincoln navigator. THIS is so irritating gettting calls after enrolling in no call list! 1-800-301-3436
scammer. I KNOW I didn't fill out a chance to win ANYTHING, I have 5 children 1 month, 14 months, 3 years, 4 years, and 5 years, drive a mini bus (can't fit all in a small vehicle) I don't have a free hand to fill out ANY papers! or time to play dumb to scammers.
I decided to go ahead and respond even though I had already read this page so I could share my experience. I told my wife before we went that our scratch off would probably reveal that we had won a worthless vacation. I showed up to the Orlando location of the Global Vacations Network, aka"Dream Go Explore" Once they pre-qualified me they took me on a tour of one of their vacation club locations. It was nice, the sales girl was nice. We went back to the office, a fast talking man shared a slide presentation. After the presentation the sales girl took us into a small room to go over prices and all. Upon telling her that it wasn't for us, she told us she had to get us a survey form then we could go. A few minutes later the fast talking man came in with the sales girl and he tried to sale us even more, even brought the price way down. My wife and I both thought that it seemed like a great deal if you do that type of vacationing, but it still wasn't for us. He finally gave up and the sales girl brought us our scrath off and to my amazement, it revealed that we had won a bogus vacation. Actually you get this certificate from http://freehotelcertificates.com/ C&B Getaways. Upon reading the fine print and researching it on the web to find others comments, I decided it too is a scam, not the $1100.00 vacation package I was told it was upon revealing my scratch off prize. Go if you like, it wasn't for us. My guess is that if you don't buy in, you'll probably get the same bogus prize.
I got the call from Tony at the prize fulfillment center. I never win anything. Now if they called and said hey you owe us more money than you make,I'd have to believe it. Thats more like real life!!!
I just got a call from "BILL" at 800-301-3436
who said I won a lincoln Navigator....from the Grand Sweepstakes Giveaway
Bill was at the Price Distribution Center. Glad I checked this first before calling back. Can't we sue scammers? Some kind of annoying nuisance false advertising kind of class action suit??? come on there's scummy lawyers for everything else...where are they when you need them?
Received a call from Comm Group Mitch caller id 1-773-288-8156
. Caller spoke very quickly. Lots of background noises(Like a party) Said I won a car in a contest and to call the number to receive the prize. I did a reverse call and found that Kea S. Kim 5326 South Cornell Avenue, Chicago Illinois 60615 lives at the address listed for the phone #. Feel free to call Kea to let him know that his little prank didn't work.
Mitchell's Communications Group http://www.bbb.org/chicago/business-reviews/sweepstakes/mitchells-communications-group-in-chicago-il-88307402
I woke at a Law Firm. We came back from the weekend to discover this message.
"Hi this is Billf rom the Prize Distribution Center. I have very good news about the Grand Sweepstakes Entry form you filled out some time back. Call us back at 1-800-301-3436
We knew right away it was a scam. They called a law firm, IDIOTS!
Got the call regarding the entry I made some months ago and that he had very good news for me regarding the Lincoln Navigator. I never enter anything so, guess what, it's another scam.... Jim, don't call back!
I got the a call today from Tony at the Prize Fulfillment Center. When I called back they gave a confirmation code of MCG507, claiming that I had won one of 3 prizes (Ford Explorer, 3-day trip, or a flatscreen TV). They did not know where this entry form was from...they just said it was a survey form filled out at "a mall" but couldn't say what mall. They didn't know my husband's name even though this entry form was supposedly filled out by both of us and they also tried to get me to "verify" our combined gross annual salaries. I gave no information and I investigated further to find out that this is a nationwide scam and they are trying to trick people into sitting through a 1 1/2 to 2 hour time share spiel. This is a scam...don't fall for it!! Also, I found no evidence that Time to go Travel exists as a business...legitimate or otherwise. As an aside, the "Prize Ceremony" was being held at a Days Inn. I tried to call Days Inn to find out more about the company only to be brushed off and told that the girl "knew nothing about the company (including their name) and the only thing she knows is they've been renting the banquet hall for the last month and a half or so" So apparently Days Inn does not know or care that they are hosting a group of scam artists. I don't think I'll be giving them any future business either.
I just received a call from Jim from the Prize Distribution Center that I had registered to win a Lincoln Navigator and to call him back at 1-866-313-0311
that he had good news for me. I never enter to win so I knew it was a scam. It just amazes me that some people have this much free time on there hands!
The caller said they had tried numerous times to call me and this would be the last time. (This was the 1st time actually). Said I had entered a contest within the last 12 months and that my name had been drawn, and I had won the top prize. "It would be in my best interest to call". His/her name was Toni. Caller ID said Comm Group Mitch. 773-288-8135
. I picked up the phone before the message was finished just out of curiosity, and to tell them not to call again, but it was a machine and it just kept talking, even though I was saying "hello, hello". (I don't enter any contests, so I know this was not true). I am also on a do not call list. This is definitely a SCAM!!!!!!!!
I received a call from 800-301-3436
or was told to call this # that I had won a Lincoln Navigator, in a contest that I had entered, OK I called no one answered called again, then I CHECKED THIS OUT ON THE WEB, SO IT IS ALL JUST A BIG SCAM!!!!!!!!
You eneter a contest in the la 12-18 month Prize Car not naviator. Caller Christie Number 1-866-601-8851
#1003ext. Have not heard back. My mother and sister go to a lot of casinos, that is where they claim the entry was made. ODD
got home on 11/1/2009 with the same message about the Navigator!! I was immediatley supious about the call, I don't enter seepstakes!!!!!!!dont fall for this! we are all to busy and vaulnerable for this kind of stuff, i agree with a comment posted earlier in this form,,, shame on them for this!
hey I just one the same navigator you all onehe going to call backHAHAHAHAHAHA.My parent also rec this scam they believed it...they are very old
they seem nice enough...the owner was a bit distant, going on about the places he'd traveled. after that bit i picked a scratch ticket and my wife won a 2500 cash debit visa. it was the third prize mentioned but the second one listed on the letter they sent. i did not buy anything. good enough.
Same script as below. Even the same Prize Claim number: MCG526. If you do not provide them permission for the use of your picture in their promotion, they hang up pleasantly and leave you alone. This is an advertising technique used for years by time-share companies. They need to tempt you with prizes/gifts to get you in the door for a two hour, high-pressure sales pitch.
I received a call from Tony Mitchell from the Prize Fulfillment Center773-663-4369
on my voicemail. Caller ID shows(G-COMMUNICATIONS).He stated this is the final attempt in trying to reach me. The message said to call him a @866-601-8851
ex1001. I called and went straight to voicemail. Tiesha call me back leaving a voice mail to call her @ 866-601-8851
ex1015. I called her...she stated that I won 1 of 4 major prizes(Top Prize:2009 Ford Explorer)in a contest I entered in the last 12-18 months. The only obligation I must agree to was allow them to picture me in the magazine if I win the Ford Explorer. She gave me a Prize Claim # MCG526 for me to retrive my prize at 1515 Prudential Dr.(NO STATE OR ZIP) "YEAH RIGHT". I call the 773-663-4369
and it's the voicemail of Mitchell"s Communication Group...address 1727 East 71st.(NO STATE OR ZIPCODE). SCAM...SCAM
Received an URGENT call from Tony at Prize Distribution Center. Said I had entered a contest within the last 4 to 18 months (haha -wouldn't they know when I entered?) Message said that he has tried several times to get in touch with us and time is running out. We had "won" 1 of the top 4 prizes. Interesting enough - Caller ID said "Blocked Call". He also said that he knows there is a Do Not Call List (we are on it) but since we "entered" the contest that was how he could call us. Looks like a HUGE scam and they need to be reported as violating the no call list! I think that could bring them large fines.
prize fulfillment center called me. I hung-up. Terrence(fake name) White called me back and was very rude. I said quit calling me ---- sucker and hung up. He called me back and threatened me! I have just spoken with the WI. F.B.I. branch office.(interstate threat) I fear for my wife and one year old daughter. Sorry terry. Peace be with you.
Received a call form Tony Mitchell (Prize Fulfillment Center), 8:12 pm, Aug 8 09, stating that someone (no specific person) just won a prize (not mentioned name or where calling from). He left a # to reach him back (pre recording i think and not the same # calling from) any time day or night. While upon calling several times and going straight to voice mail (FULL btw). So i decided to look on line to see if there is any thing i can find on the company any low and behold i found this site. for all of you that say you received a prize congrats, but for me, i can't waist my time or my gas to wait in traffic (chicago) and then through a boring 1.5 - 2hrs lecture hoping to receive something. that's time and resources lost that could be with friends and family.
after playing phone tag with bill russell and his assistants for a few days, i spoke with sara johnson and i asked her every question i cd think of for days... why? to promote their company. where? in atlanta. how? instead of spending money on advertising spend it on a couple of gifts. when? once a year, maybe more (depends on the specific company). why do i have to bring my debit or credit card? so that the company knows i am financially capable of travelling in the future (she assured me that i can cover up my personal info if necessary)...among many omore questions...in the end, i was satisfied that I would be awarded a gift for attending the event. i brought the papers with me to be sure.
I just called and it is such a scam. They listed off all the prizes I could win. When they called they said I won a linclon Nav 2009. Yeah right. They also said you have to be 28yrs and older to be recieve the prize. Why would I try to win a car if I was not 28 yrs of age. Thats because I never entered to win a Linclon Nav. 2009. BIG SCAM! Be ware.
I got a call from these people. I did not have a problem at all. Maybe you guys should at least call back and speak with a rep. I read this site before I called to prepare myself for a scam or something and it wasnt a scam at all. They told me what I had to bring. I did ask them how could their be so many diffrent people that get pulled as finalist. They stated that the finialist are pulled by their demografics ( i don't think i spelled that right) anyway They gave me the location it was in tinley park IL. I just came back from the place. It was pretty ok. We were their for like two hours they did pitch us their travel club which wasnt half bad. We told them no anyway just to see if we would still be rewarded. They gave us a scratch and and we won a trip to anywhere in the us we also got a 500 visa gift card, and a 300 food voucher for ultra foods. It was great at least to me. If you got the time why not.
I got a call, these are travel clubs trying to promote their company. I got a 2500 am ex card. I just had to sit and listen to them they did offer me the package they were talking about but I just said no they told me on the phone I did not have to buy anything and they didn't hassle me. They gave me a scratch card I got the card and went home I was their for like two hours but it was worth it. It is not a scam I used to live in florida and thats all the people did down there. they went to see tours of these companies and got free stuff. Retired people like myself live off these people. If you got the time why not.
No I actally did receive my prize. I had no problem, I went in crystal lake IL it could have been a diffrent company you went to but for me it was fine.
Well Because they said that I would get 1 out of four prizes I followed through. I went all the way to a place in Woburn. As soon as we went there the man opened up an envelope held 4 scratch cards before us and askie us to pick one- It was a form to be filled out and send out for a 3 day vacation........
What a waste of time for a couple who make >50,000$ a year..NO 90 minute presentation...nothing..
we are going on vacation....Folks...dont get caught...I wonder why I did...I guess I thought I would win a TV..like Mike said that he had won..Mike , Is it really true that you got all these? Or is to mislead poor souls like us?
I received a call on my ansering machine stating that I had been picked to win a Lincoln Navigator. Of course, I ignored the message and never called them back. A few days later I get a call from a man whom I could barely understand because of his heavy middle-eastern accent. He claimed that I entered a drawing at Christmas time to win one of four prizes (I guess I was no longer a winner of a Navigator..ha!) I don't enter those things so I knew it was a crock. The conversation became heated and he actually him. raised his voice to me, questioning "then why did you enter to win if you don't want". I DIDN'T enter to win anything! I promptly hung up on And he called right back and asked why am I so rude! So I decided to go along with it just to get him off my line. I was transferred to a supervisor and a "gift claim code" was given, as well as an appointment for me to show up at the "gift claim center" in the next town from me. I was advised to show up or he would be in trouble. The appointment takes about 1 1/2 hours, which leads me to believe that there is a catch (even if the catch is wasting 2 hours of your time to listen to some speil). Of course, they stated that there wasn't a catch. In reading Mike's comment below, maybe it's legit. But, I am tired of my time being wasted by phone calls, live advertising, and demonstrations (KIRBY VACUUMS!!!)...not worth the alledged prizes or services!
got the bullshit call today myself from a bill at 800-301-3436
. these assholes will hopefully get theirs for pulling this shit in this economy. karma will be a bitch. they are worthless losers!
I knew not to fall for it but wanted to see how big of a scam I was dealing with.
Thanks for sharing the information, everyone, especially Nina who shared the complete sweepstakes information that she got when she requested email confirmation. Now I can delete that puzzling answering machine message and get on with my life...
I got a call from Steve Price with the prize distribution center. I called back and spoke with Marilyn Baxter. She explained about the travel club and the prizes. I went the location in Napa Ca. They gave a presentation for about 90min at the end they asked if We were interested some said yes and I didn't want to. They said fine gave me a scratch card. I got a trip for two to anywhere in the us and a 500 visa gift card. it was nice
I got a call with the same thing, it was fine I live in dallas texas. These are travel clubs trying to get the word out about their locations I got a 500 visa gift card when I went and I bought the travel club membership. It was affordable and I went shopping with my gift card
To all of you guys saying this is not true I actually followed through with every thing. Now I got a call on May 10. If you listen to the messages it doesn't say you won a lincoln navi it says you are a finialist. So anyway I called back the 800-297-9227
number they gave me and spoke with a rep. They told me what I needed to bring. I asked them why they were doing this and they said it was a promotion by the sponsoring company to get the word out about them. They said The grand prize was lincoln navi, and the other prizes were 2500 AM EX card a trip and a 32 flat screen tv. I went to the location in crystal lake IL. They gave a presentation about the company it is a travel club. I didn't have to buy anything, I just had to listen after about 90mins they gave us a scratch card and I got a 32" tosihba LCD tv. They also gave me a 100 gas card. I was amazed, I asked how could they give all of this stuff away, and they said something that made sense to me. They said instead of spending 100 plus thousand dollars on commercials that you may not see its cheaper for they to speak directly with the people they are trying to reach and if they like they but and if they don't they don't either way they give them something for their time and thats its. So if you do get a call follow through with it. I got my tv right their on the spot and the gas card I had to send in a form but I already got that back too. So again if you dont mind spend about two hrs to get some stuff then do it...
I received a call on Monday May 11, 2009 that said I won a Lincoln Navigator. The person said his name was "Brad". I was given a number to call back to and a recording came on saying all our directors are speaking with finalist and could I call back to 1-800-298-9227
later and someone would be able to assist me. It also said to leave your name, phone number and state where you are calling from.

Jason, If this is a diffrent number how do you know it is the same people? Did you even Call back? NO!!!! you did not, but I did. So, if anyone else is reading this please save your self the Humiliation before you act. Unlike me :-(
Mine was actually from a different number 1-866-442-3086
...but from the 'Prize Fulfillment Center.' Actually received two calls from two different people within about a weeks time. One of the names was Mikos (male) and the other was Montre (female). Both stated that I had won a new car in a sweepstakes that I entered 12 to 18 months ago and my name was drawn as the winner. They also stated to call back the number to receive one of the top 4 Grand Prizes and they would give me a claim number and address to do so.I had a feeling this was BS.
Pat or Matt with Surprise Distribution Center looking at my entry form to Grand Sweepstakes Giveaway and I've just won a new Lincoln Navigator. Congratulations, haven't we all figured this out by now??!!! NOT!!! Hehehe--the joke's on him.
I got a call from Matt from the Prize ( or fry ) Distribution center telling me I had one a Lincoln Navigator.
Strange seeing as I never entered any contest called Grand Sweepstakes giveaway. The number is 1-800-504-6196
and ask for Michelle. She can kiss my butt. I wouldn't take one anyway even if they gave it to me. So much for do not call....
01-11-2009 It's 6 p m in Louisiana and I received a call from Bill who who left a message that said to call him back at: 1 800-301-3436
, on my home phone around 20 minutes ago and he stated that one of us entered a contest to win a Lincoln Navigator, never mentioned the name of the person who won, but that he had good news, that we did win. I called back, after our show finished, I did not believe him, I just wanted to see why he called, with my phone I D hidden and his voice answered Prize Distribution Center, no one is available to answer your call please leave a message. What a fake!
Stated that I enetered a contest (non-specific) and prize offered is a 2007 Lincoln Navigator. Congratulations! Now, why would I want to have such a big gas guzzler in my yard??? If they had come up with a Toyota Prius I might have bitten....

Wow, do these folks have their demographics wrong. I would never enter a drawing for a Cadillac Escalade. What a stupid way to waste gasoline.
got the call on October 3rd. Never said my name or my husband's...Bill from the Prize Distribution Center...2007? Lincoln Navigator...call back 1-800-996-0081
...yadda yadda yadda! This is ridiculous that this crap has been going on since August of 2006 (according to this comment list) and nothing has changed
Received a call on my answering machine 10-13-08 from "prize distribution center chicago". caller ID showed unknown caller. Called 1-800-996-0081
on 10-17-08 and talked to another person, asked for bill. This person said he would have bill call me right back. After 2 hours no call and I suspect there will not be one. Original message was,"Am looking at your entry for winning a 2007 Lincoln Navigator, Congratulations, please call above number and ask for bill." Should be a way to track down and prosecute these scam artists.
I GOT A CALL FROM SAM AND I WON THE SAME CAR EVERYONE ELSE DID, I DID CALL MY LOCAL BBB AND TURN THEM IN ALSO., I PUT A BLOCK ON MY NUMBER FROM THESE A--HOLES,,,,,,
The caller Id showed no name with this number, I screen my calls so I didn't answer. The Man on the recording "johnathon" says that I entered a sweepstakes for a Lincoln Navigator that he has good news but I have to call a 1-800 number to find out what Ive won.

NICK TRAVIS Sep 11th, 2008
I received a call from 708-41-8068.Same story, only her name was Stacey. And she called me by my name when she left the voicemail.
I have been getting messages on my home voice mail for a few months now. They claim that I entered a Grand Sweepstakes Giveaway for a Lincoln Navigator, the contest is now over and they have very good news for me. I know I didn't enter a contest so I know that it's bogus. I did try to call the call back # 1-800-393-1518
. It goes to a voice mail with a woman's voice stating that Johnathon is either away from his desk or on another call. I did leave a message but never got a call back. I tried to call a few more times & so did my husband. We knew it was garbage & we are on the do not call list.
I got the same call from david mitchell 1-800-821-2670
. Too bad its bougus. what I want to know is what is their motivation and what are they getting out it.
I won a Lincoln Navigator, Jeff from Prize Ditrabtion LM.. called 866-818-8040
and its got a hang up, called again whent to voice mail. It's all a SCAM!!!!!!! Dont waste your time
called me because I "won" a Lincoln Navigator. I called the 1-800-504-6196
number and the woman on the other end couldn't even give my name, (which I refused to give). When I told ever this seemed funny and asked her if this was a scam, she replied "You call back when you are ready to give that information because I've got plenty of other finalists on hold!" I asked her to give me her name and she hung up on me.
i got a call too from prize distribution center from bill ??? i won a lincoln navigator too hahahahahaha seriously do they still think people are that stupid, who has the time or the money to go to some stupid time share thing or other wise i mean really the economy is crashing, people are losing their homes their jobs and they think we believe this crap that we won a new car for nothin that stuff just doenst happen these days for real no one really gives anything away for nothing in these times, wake up peeps we have the internet now !!!of course its a SCAM duh...
I rec'd my second call regarding the Grand Sweepstakes Giveaway. This first time they just left a message, but today I actually talked to the guy. I had already looked it up on line and most thought it was a scam. Actually, I think it's legit but not necessarily for the Lincoln Navigator they menitoned in my message. Its a sales pitch with a guaranteed prize. If you show up to this sales pitch as a couple and listen to their pitch, probably for timeshares, Michael wasn't specific, you are guaranteed either a Lincoln, $2500 cash, a 7 day cruise in the Bahamas or a 32" flat screen TV. The reason I believe it is because my brother owns a car dealership and they hire sales companies to come in sometimes to drum up business like this. Its a high pressure sales pitch, the sales company gets a cut of all the sales and the dealer has an insurance policy in case someone actually wins a car (its a scratch off for the prize deal). So if you want one of those things and have some time to kill. You can say no to the pitch.
Same B.S. Got a call just today, (caller id said Illinois Call) did not answer, voice mail said i had entered some sweepstakes for a new lincoln navigator and the contest was over and they had some really good news, call 1-800-821-2670
asap to claim my prize, but like everyone else, they did not mention my name. Called B.S. # and got David Mitchell's voice mail telling me to leave my name, phone #, and state from which i was calling. Glad i found this site, Thanx, IT IS A BIGASS SCAM!
call bill back at 800-996-0081
you have won a 2007 lincoln navigator , glad i googled this looks like a good scam .. im not calling them back ..thx
prize dist Jun 27th, 2008
So, I got the call too, from a guy named Paul saying I won a 2008 Lincoln Navigator. I know that I didn't win a Lincoln Navigator, but you all are calling it a scam. I've read most of the comments here, and apparently no one actually got scammed out of anything. Not one person. Also, did anyone actually try to go to the conference thing and win a prize? I saw that someone said they did, but they completely left out what happened when it came to them giving her a prize at the end of the conference. What happened?????
What exactly are you afraid they would scam you out of if you called them back? Your phone number? They apparently already have it! Haha...
What I want to hear is... "Yeah I tried calling them back, and then they tried to get me to tell them my social security number or credit card number."
I just got the same call, the first one from David Mitchell, or so he said, and then a callback from Dorothy. Told them to pound sand.
