Received a call from 727-286-3635 saying I should call a Mr. Bill Russell at 866-288-2780 because we won one of four prizes which cold be a Dodge Durango, $25,000., a Toshiba laptop, and one other thing.

Seems like a scam to me.

Same story. Got a call to call the 866-288-2780 number. They called me back and told me I was a definite winner of one of 4 prizes; durango (or $25K), cruise, $2500, or toshiba laptop. No strings, no "timeshare" like presentation commitments. Said I'd receive my prize via a scratch off in the mail in 5-7 days. Didn't happen. Called twice (I'm a glutten for punishment) and get messages that my call will be returned within 15 minutes. Baloney. Now I see these posts and feel like a jerk.

Caller name: Diane Foster

Received a call from Diane Foster saying my entry form sumitted on line to win a Dodge truck (or other prizes) had been selected and to claim the prize call 866-288-2780 and talke to my prize coordinator. The only problem with this call is the fact that I had not filled out an online contest. My conclusion: this is a scam regarding the prize and is nothing more than a sales gimick trying to get me to purchase magazines, books, etc. My wife received a similar call and she almost never got off the phone with them.

Got the exact call that Roger J got, from Diane Foster, only it was on my answering machine. I don't remember trying to win a Dodge Durango online and am glad that I googled the number before calling the 866 number.

I received a call from an unknown female from the 954-210-7684 phone number,telling me to call a Mr.Russell @866-288-2780 because i supposedly won one of four prizes,one of which is a Dodge Durango. I was told that i had either filled out a "sweepstakes entry at my local mall or i had filled one out online,but i never filled out ANY "sweepstakes" entry anywhere. ,My guess is that it's a scam,and now that i've read other posts here i'm more sure than ever this is a scam.

On 3/5/13 Diane Foster leff message to call 866-288-2780 about winning a Dodge Durango from an email entry which no one here had ever done. Called the number but got another voicemail asking for my number so they could call back. Glad I googled this site! Seems this has gone on since Sept. 2012. Wonder if they google themselves!!

Caller name: Christina Lee

Received a call/message from Christina Lee (540-212-7721) asking for my husband by name and repeated our mailing address. Said we won a 2013 Dodge Durango and 3 other prizes. Said they sent a document to us but hadn't heard from us...whatever. Christina claimed to be Mr. Russell's assistant and to call 866-288-2780 as soon as possible...whatever. I know there is no Dodge Durango in our immediate future so an obvious scam.

Recieved message yesterday 6/13/13 stating I won a Dodge Durango, I must have registered at a mall or online somewhere. What a joke, I called them and left the nastiest message and told them they should google her name and find out what we all know. What a joke.....

Same thing just happened to me...caller knew my name and address and claimed I had entered a contest on-line or at the mall for a Durango. I asked who was sponsoring the contest? She said Mr. Russell had the details and I would have to call him to learn more. Even more interesting she asked if I was familiar with a nearby town because the Durango has to be picked up tomorrow. Our home is on the do not call list and it has not spared us from telemarketers.

my call was like all above but came from Branford, CT 203-208-3464. Call Mr Russell at 866-288-2780. Woman said she worked for Prize Communications out of Chicago. Only other response to my questions was to call Mr Russell tonight to pick up my prize tomorrow in my hometown. How can the 4 prizes be spread among so many winners?????

I too won either a 2013 Durango or one of three other prizes. Since I've never entered a contest to won a big SUV, I have to assume it is a scam. My husband insisted I call the number, yup...Bill Russell was not in but please leave my number for them to call me back. I should have listened to my inner self and deleted the message.

Got the same message from a "Terry Scott".. I was extra skeptical so of course I googled the number to get some info. I could not find anything to terrible so I decided to give Mr. Russell a call, no answer just voicemail, shortly after I received a call back from his assistant. She went through a long process about how a travel agency was giving me this prize. we lived close by the address she gave us so we went to check it out, we sat thru a 55min seminar that was supposed to last 90min, It was supposed to be a travel company but they turned out to be a time share company, we refused all offers and in the end I submitted my winning ticket number claim they gave me a scratch off ticket that revealed that I won a $2500 in cash prize. They hesitated to award me the prize for awhile and about 15mins later a man walked in by the name of Bill Russell he gave me $2000 in a certified check and told us that the $500 was kept for tax purposes. truthfully I was just happy to leave there with the money the check cleared immediately but the problem is now the timeshare company keep calling and emailing us to accept offers and we keep denying them. I guess if you have the time to waste on a seminar and the balls to say NO then its actually worth your time to receive something free especially for something I never signed for to begin with. I guess the only person that will ever actually receive the car is the person that accept their offers but h**l $2000 was good enough for us.

A Melvin Holmes left a message on my voicemail. Same thing, we won a 2013 Dodge Durango and 4 other prizes. Said we had not responded to postal documents. He Made a point to say this is real, your ticket has been picked, congratulations!! I do enter a lot of contests, sure wish it was real! When I saw everyone else with similar stories and a Mr. Russell involved just proved scam!!

Just got the same call from Christina Lee - caller id came across as 540-409-4504. Asked for me by name and said I won a drawing for something I entered. I told her I didn't enter anything. She said "Hold on here, let me look at the entry. " Then she stated my name and mailing address, said I was a winner of one of the top 5 prizes for the Durango drawing. Gave me Mr. Russell's name and said to call him so I could pick it up tomorrow. The number she said to call was 866-288-2780. I googled it and found this sight. No doubt it's a scam.
