I just happened upon this website. It seems to me you got a gift. Why not just say thank you? What struck me is the vicious comments. Then I read Marie's comment on travel and thought is it possible the comments are from competitors in the hospitablity industry? I did not read one thing that someone attended. On websites you do respond to various promotionals, surveys -- make various inquiriesand Computers are run through phone lines so it seems logical that your phone number is available through surfing the web. Maybe you really did enter a sweepstake or contest.

Got a call from the Prize Claim Center...I was a finalist for a Lincoln Navigator. The number that called was 618-993-0838 from a Dale Dorch.He told me to call back at his toll free number 800-314-7312. I have never entered a sweepstakes for a Lincoln, but by reading some of others comments, the Holiday Inn kept popping up. I recently stayed at a Holiday Inn and I believe that they did ask for a e-mail address.Has anyone else stayed there prior to recieving their good news call?

This is the second time that I have gotten this phone call - saying that I had won a SUV (this time a 2008 SUV). I would never, ever enter a contest for an SUV. The person was Crystal and her number was 866-679-1133 - ext 243. I told she was a scammer ... and bug off .. did I want to forfeit the prize ......I said you betcha.

O.k. - so i just got a call from Crystal at the Awards Claim Center who told me i won a 2008 Ford Explorer....immediately i'm skeptical. She says "are you still there?"; i respond "yes i'm just wondering where i signed up for this" She said "through my email address." I then asked what company i won from, thinking maybe i won something from pampers or huggies. She said she couldn't see that info. Ahah. So she then asked, "would you like to claim your prize or forfeit it." I thought - WOW that's a bit brazen. So i said, i'll forfeit. FAST FORWARD - i dial *69 and get the phone #. It is 1-866-679-1133 and Crystal's ext is x243. I call back thinking maybe, just maybe, i was too rash (not). I get back to Crystal and this time she's nice to me. SURPRISE!! So i explained i wanted more info and didn't understand why someone would call me to give away a $30,000 car. She was so understanding (actress) and said most people are skeptical, but IT IS REAL! All you have to do is attend a 90 minute presentation and the car is yours! - Ahah, the catch. O.k., thanks Crystal, i'll call you back after i talk to my husband about this one...or not:) Thanks for everyone who commented, saved me a lot of heartache.

02/28/2008: I received a call at work today from someone claiming that I was a finalist for a $20,000.00 Grand Prize Give-A-Way. Immediately, I drilled the caller for information about the company's name and web site. The caller said she was calling from "Atlanta Awards Claim Center" and the web site was GlobalHolidays.com. Caller ID showed the number as 866-679-1133. Assuming it was a scam and knowing that I do not enter sweepstakes, I connected to the Internet while continuing to drill the caller. Every time she asked another question, I answered with a question. The caller became very irritated with my questions and hung up the telephone. IT'S A SCAM!

Got a message from "Louis Strong" calling from the "Awards Claim Office" 866-679-1133 x240) telling me my name was pulled last night in a drawing & I won a "2007 Vacation Giveaway" I called back & told them I was so filthy rich that I would like hard working tele-marketer Louis Strong to receive the prize on my behalf - LOL!

I get calls from this number, but every time I answer, they hang up. I suspect they are wanting to talk to a machine and not to a live person so we can't tell them to put the number on the DNC list. Cowards.

Got a message saying I had won an SUV from having my name drawn and left the above number with extension 248.

I called late at night to see who was making the call and the recording said "Awards Claim Center" with the above extension and name.

I don't recall ever submitting my name for any contest.

Anything that's offered for free, you normally end up "paying" more for it than if you paid cash value at the start.

No thanks!

Olenthia called to say "a contest had been entered in your name to win a 2007 SUV. Your entry was drawn last night. Congratulations! Please call me back toll free at (866) 679-1133 extension 239."
Sure
The company is a new Travel office. I asked to be removed from their call list and hung up. Olenthis has now called me back 4 times, the last one after I threatened to notify the FCC that they were not removing me from the call list and continuing to call.

Final facts: the number that was given to me for CDS is: 708-249-7115. Because I insisted this number was not a usable number, they also gave me: 866-679-1133 -- but this second number is not even for CDS, it's another one for the "Awards Claim Center"! The number that Mr. "Jackson" called me from, which was recorded on my Caller ID is: 877-237-9457. All in all, I have been lied to numerous times, had negative and untrue comments made concerning my character, lost valuable time, and suffered extreme aggravation.

It's obvious that this is a scam...but what is the scam? Is my cell phone # going to be charged an outrageous amount? Or, worse yet, is my credit going to be high jacked? Has anyone actually been "scamed" and what happened? I received a call from this number and they left this exact message on my machine: "This is a message for Victor. This is Beverly Fox calling from the awards claim office in regards to a contest entry form submitted in your name to win a 2007 vehicle. Your entry form was selected as a prize winner so it would be in your best interest to give our office a call back. You can reach me at 866-679-1133 x248 or 800-596-6693. This is not a sales call or a telemarketing call. You simply have been placed in a drawing with a guaranteed price. Thank you and have a good day." I do not recall entering any drawing.

I received a similar call today (June 26, 2007) at 11:10 AM from 1-866-679-1133 from Toi at x237 telling me that I had was one of 75 finalists in a stateswide sweepstakes that had been going on for 18months, and had won one of 3 prizes - a Ford explorer, 27" flat screen HDTV, or an all expenses paid vacation to vegas or orlando. Toi said the name of the sponsoring company was "Global Holidays", so I tried to go to their website while on the phone, and found that it did not exist. When I asked her for the website address, she said it was under construction. Yeah ok, Global Holidays is "moving to VA" but they don't have a website? That shot my antenna up alongwith the fact that you had to bring a credit card or checkbook for ID, as well as the fact that you had to attend a 60-90 min presentation before receiving your scratch off ticket that would tell you which of the 3 prizes you had won. Toi was very convincing and very pleasant, but when I called my boyfriend to schedule, he told me that there wasn't going to be any Ford Explorer or TV, and that it was a gimmic to pressure people into buying travel. I decided to look up Global Holidays and Sweepstakes, and that God I found this site. I have never posted on a site before but I understand and appreciate the value now. Thank you all for taking the time to comment.
