To Ms.Kelly/Scammer If you are trying so much to strive in a bad economy try giving someone a car they can actually afford to put gas in. Just because you say you have this nice car to give to someone ( who is over 28 with good credit and makes over 50k a year) no less does not mean they are stupid enough to buy in to your bull. If you care so much about the economy give someone a damn honda or volvo or something. And as far as your company striving in a bad economy there is a special place in the bread line for all you lazy scammers who don't know the meaning of hard work.

I received another call which is the 2nd one from Tony because I have won a carto please call back. They said I don't have to sign anything and it isn't a scam. I am pretty good at being scammed because I have turned in so many telemarkters that had been fined because of the "Do Not Call List". So I was curious. The number this time has changed and it is 877--279-3457 ask for Tony extension #109. Same thing happened like the rest of the callers below, Tony is out but another guy came on and asked for name and number and then I let him give his whole routine while I listened. Then I said OK before you go any further, I refuse to go anywhere (this time it is Ormond Beach) for a 90 minute sit in and if you don't stop calling me you will be reported to the authorities. I have recorded this call as well as you and it is the oldest scam around. So beware and play their game, threaten them and they will leave you alone.

It's one of those condo sales companies. My husband called them back and they told him to get his prize he has to go to Daytona Beach (we live in Jacksonville, Fl)to some travel agency and listen to some 90 minute sales pitch thing I'm sure.. I look it up on BBB they got an F rating..

I rec'vd a message from Tony notifying me of winning a car. I called back and went to voice mail. I left a message, saying I didn't remember entering a sweepstakes or contest. I only left my first name and the number they had already called. Then I called back and hit "0" and the same woman who is on the auto attendant answered and put me on hold. Another man then picked up the line and asked for my name and phone number to verify why they had called me-I only gave him my first name and said I wasn't comfortable giving out my last name but I would give him the number they called. He put me on hold and then came back and said I had entered a contest and won and started giving me the line. By that time I had looked up the number online and found this forum. I told him that I was looking at the internet and the feedback on what he was saying was all negative and then I hung up. Should have looked it up online first.

12/03/09 I received a call from Tony also #1/877/866/4202 stating I had won a car. I do enter sweepstakes, so called him back, he was not in, I left a message with phone #---you are right about watching the phone bill.
This is most defintely a scam!! Thanks for all the info.

I would advise everyone to keep an eye on your phone bill for the next few months for unauthorized charges. Since you called the number back, they may use this as a way to say that you OKed being subscribed to another scam that has been happening for a few months. Just a suspicion I have, wondering what they get out of calling people just to have them call you back....

Not only did they call me, but they call me at my work number, which, unless I give you my business card, you don't have...I called back, just to mess with them, and no answer, only a voicemail for "Lakida" at extention 1021. It was the same pitch you have all reported, and I suspect that this is some marketing gimmick designed to rip you off... what a joke!

I just received a call from "The Prize Fulfillment Center" that I had won a car and to call Tony at 877-866-4202 ext.1001. I called that number and a recording said that I had reached the PFC and that Tony Mitchell was not available, but to leave my number and a specific message about the call. I did. I called again within 5 minutes and the recording said I had reached the PFC and the voice mailbox of Tony Mitchell was full. Please call again. Maybe the feds got him after all these complaints.

Got the same message from Tony tonight. I grilled them. They did not appreciate my questions and told me I needed to stop being rude. I told them I was sure they would understand why I would have questions and be suspicious. wHAT A JOKE they have been trying to reach me? Ha! They did not answer my questions and suggested, when I pointed that out, that I was interrupting them and they couldn't answer. No, they weren't answering. I again succeeded in my quest of getting a telemarketer to be done with me. She suggested if I couldn't let her read from her script I could have a pleasant evening. I suggested I hoped she could sleep well at night earning her money the way she did.

I received a call today 10/20. Same message you all got: You won 1 of 4 prizes the big one being a Ford Explorer, Cash, airline tickets and trips. They wanted me to to come to 951 Market Street Suite 104 Fort Mill South Carolina 29708 the White Exchange building. I had to commit to either 6:00 or 8:00 tomorrow. I figured it was bogus and glad we have the internet to check this junk out. Someone needs to arrest these idiots.

Ms. Kelley, nobody cares if you work for them or not, we receive garbage phone calls about prizes we did not win that are misleading and false. The company is based on deceptive calls to try and lure people in. If we really did win something then mail the prizes out to us. I'm sure you will be mailing them out soon. RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIGHTTTTTT.
BOOO Ms. Kelley

I just received a phone call stating the same thing everyone else states. The call was from Tony who is making a final attempt to get in touch with me. He said that i have won a car. The only difference is the telephone#(877-866-4202 ext.1001)I did call back and left my name and telephone#, but so far no returned calls. Thank you for posting your comments, because i do enter in contests, and i might have fell for this scam. Thank you

"Tony" called me too! This time for a presentation at the Time To Go Travel Agency in Englewood, CO. Same spiel except my potential winning car was a Ford Explorer instead of a Navigator. Called the number and talked to "Terrell." My claim number was MCG514. I bet some of you have the same number! Thanks for all of the other posts. Figured it was a scam but it's nice to read about others' experiences.

I was called by Tony Mitchell last night at 8:45PM. Same speech, "numerous attempts", "in your best interest", the message did have a threatening tone, but I called back and was sent strait to voice mail where I left my name and number, I called back again in 20 minutes, strait to voice mail again. I'm really hoping it wasn't a mistake to leave my name.

I got the same message as everyone else - "numerous attempts to reach you", "in your best interest" etc. The message has a threatening tone. The number that called me was 708-833-8688. I tried calling it back and it was always busy. PLEASE REPORT TO DO NOT CALL REGISTRY - file a complaint. It's simple and if they get enough complaints, it looks like they investigate.

Ms. Kelly, a reputable company would leave the name of their company and legitimate phone number that you could look up and learn that it was in fact a reputable business.

I got the same phone message as all of these other comments you see here. I've NEVER filled out ANYTHING for a contest, surveys, or sweepstakes. I don't order anything on the internet. Even this comment doesn't include my real name.

And to Ms. Kelley, (scroll down to see her comment) When someone receives an unsolistited call with questionable representation, one can't help but think that the caller is ashamed of their company, or it is in fact a scam. Be more straight-forward. Your business may grow as a result.

These people keep calling me also. I am on the DO NOT call list as well. Tony Mitchell says "It's in your best interest to call me back" lol...
Finally after about 5 of these messages I call back because it's just annoying. I leave a voice mail for "Tony Mitchell" some other guy calls me later and says "Tony asked me to return your call and after you verify the name on your ID or Driver's Licence we can verify why we are calling". I asked how he got my number and he says he can only tell me after I verify my name. I said to take me off whatever list they had me on and NOT to call again.

To MS. Kelley~ I admonish YOU and THIS company to be more forthright in your dealings if you want to be considered reputable and not a bunch of scam artist's as you appear to be.

Probable scam. Message somewhat garbled: Toni from ? Center says we won a car (or major top prize) They have been trying to get hold of us, we must call back today. 866-601-8851 x, 1001. This is a "cold call" Caller ID: Group Mitchell, 708 248-7314

Received a call stating it was urgent for me to call back and claim prize and to call Tony at 866.601.8851 ext. 1001. I suspected something funny when he stated I know you are on Do not Call list. If I had really entered a contest they would also notify you by mail not some "urgent call" that comes through on caller ID as Private Number. They are pitching timeshare owner and I am not interested in spending 2 hours listening to someone. Glad I found this site first before I called them back.

Received a call from 708-833-8725 a message was left by Tony Mitchell to call the following number 866-601-8851 Ext. 1001, and said that they had attempted to contact me several times before without success, and that I was to be awarded one of their four major prizes and that they would not be calling if I hadn't entered.

The number answered as The Prize Fulfillment Center, said the usual about the call may be recorded for quality assurance and to please use the dial pad to enter the extension you wish to reach. I dialed in 1001 and received a voice mail.

I in turn left them a voicemail in return about not wishing to be called back and to delete any information or numbers they may have for myself. As well as enlightening them that the have numerous reports about them online. I did NOT mention this site in particular. Thank you for this service, it is appreciated!

Sorry Ms. Kelley, but I'm on a "Do Not Call" list and curious how your "prize center" got my telephone number. As noted by Ben, I too received the same call; verbatim, by Tony Mitchell @ (866)601-8851 ex.l00l. Out of curiosity, I
called and also got his voice mail. I however, did not leave a message. Scam or No Scam, Prize or No prize,
I do not want to be solicited...hence the reason I'm on a "Do Not Call" list.

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)601-8851ex1015. 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

I didn't pick up on the call but got a recorded message from Tony. He said that he was calling about and entry form that had been submitted in my name in the last 12 to 18 months. He indicated that I had won one of 4 major prizes. He gave a call back number of 866-601-8851 ext 1001. He said he isn't a telemarketer or time share. Looked the 866 number up on google and ended up at 800notes.com. Interesting comments and some supposedly from the caller and his administrative assistant. One commentor provided a copy of a letter they received as a result of calling the 866 number that came from All Inclusive Excursions in Texas. The 708 area code is in Illinois. Hmmm.

This is Tony with prize fulfillment center and 12 to 18 months ogo you entered to win a new car and your name was drawn i know of the do not call list but because you filled out the entry is how I can call you. You will be awarded one of the 4 grand prizes so please call me at 866-601-8851 ext.1029 this is not a telemarketing call. Time is running out I have tried several times to contact you this will be the last time.

Left message that I had won a car,in a drawing that I had entered, RIGHT< haven't entered any contests.
Even said he was aware of no call list but thought it important enough to call me anyway, what B.S.
left this call back number 866-601-8851 ext 1016, funny he said my name was drawn to win the new car, but he never once mentioned my name in the call, thats because I'm just a phone number, he doesn't know who I am.

Caller left a message saying his name is Tony. He says he's from the "_______ Service Center" (missing word sounds like "proja" or "projeck") He says he's calling, because in the last 18 months we entered our name in a drawing to win a new car, and our name was drawn to win one of their top four prizes. He gave a call-back number: 866-601-8851 ext. 1001, and said it was in our best interests to call him soon.
The strange thing is, according to another site that traces numbers, the number that called us is a cell phone in Chicago Heights. We have not entered any drawings to win a car or anything else.

If 408-603-3796 is a political call center, why did it show up on my caller ID as Communication G?

I am employed by the Prize Fulfillment Center. In reading all of your comments/complaints, I've not found ANY foundation nor reasoning as to why you all feel like what we do is a scam. First of all, if you have NOT responded to the call, how can you make a definitive assessment of why we're calling? Secondly, we do NOT place cold calls. The information we receive actually DOES come from individuals who HAVE INDEED, whether knowingly or not, filled out a contest entry form of some kind. I have done that myself. When surfing the web, replying or filling out surveys in pop-up windows, at the local grocery store for a sweepstakes, etc. Finally, again, if you have NOT responded, I admonish you to gracefully keep your negative comments to yourselves as this kind of beratement does in fact hurt businesses who are attempting to strive in this worsening economy. Thank you.

I also got several calls from this number claiming that I had won a car from some contest I'd entered in the last year. I haven't entered any contests in years. It's some sort of scam.

This is the second call I have received from these bozos claiming that I have won "a car" and that this is the "last notification" that I will receive and they are insistent that they are calling in response to a prize drawing I entered yet oddly enough they never identify who they represent (and I do not recall entering any prize drawings recently where a car would be one of the prizes). They are very obviously reading from a script because in both cases the wording was identical down to the name of the caller (even though I'm pretty certain it was two different people calling).

This is such a scam! I got a call from a Tony saying he has been trying to get a hold of me and that it is important I call him back because I won a car. He left the number 866-442-3086 Ext 221. I called back and it went to his voicemail I left a message for him to call me back. A christopher called me left a message saying I need to call him back at 866-601-8851 Ext 1017 and I will recieve my prize tomorrow. I called back and no answer. Then I got an answer it was from a Kevin this time who didn't have any of my info so he had to call me back. When he called back he said I could win a 2009 lincln navigator, 45,000 in cash a trip and 2500 in cash. I had to be 28yrs and older. which I am only 26 So why would I enter a drawing if I was not 28 yrs of age yet. The kevin guy said of sorry the law is you can be in this entry. I just didn't sound right. I would not waste my time on calling them back.
