You obviously entered if all the information is there and everything is accurate. Everything is kept between you and the person you are speaking with. If you didn't register most likely a significant other or sibling did.
So... You went on here and determined it was a scam? Based on what? A bunch of idiots that clearly can't spell? I mean how much legitimacy does this public forum actually have? Several of the people that commented on this page actually said they got a tablet... Did you read any of that? Doesn't sound like a scam to me. They also said they didn't have to purchase anything either. Anyone that wins a lottery has to buy a ticket right? Or perhaps you just expect someone to do that for you? No offense, but you truly sound like a dumb person.

That was me, just doing my job. It's a legit business and I sat through the presentation to see what it's about. It's not bad and if you enjoy camping or traveling at all then you would most likely enjoy it. You get, depending on where you out an entry form in, some good gifts just for spending 1.5 hrs of your time. And there is realistic chance of winning a grand prize.
I received a call from Peggy from Midwest outdoors resorts starting i was qualified finalists to win a ford F150 pickup truck or $20,000.00 or a vacation get away. I called this # back but no one ever answered. Then i looked up this # online & got this site , i can't believe that this was a SCAM.
I got a call from Tara too. Same thing. I asked how many people were finalists and they couldn't tell me. Also asked when final drawing was for truck and they said it'd be in the next couple months. Wtf? They wanted to verify my information they had and would explain what will happen next. CONGRATULATIONS they say multiple times. Why cause I got to talk to them? Nothing in it for me yet.
I recieved the same call stating I was a finalist for a F150 Ford truck. I have called twice and the phone is never answered and calls are never returned. It's hard to believe Ford would associate with this organization Midwest Outdoor Resorts. My telemarketer's name was Tara. What a waste of time and minutes.

And...to everyone complaining!!! Ur too busy coming up in your heads about what kinda scam it is...very simple for you simple minded folks...DONT FILL OUT A ENTRY FORM WITHOUT READING EVERYTHING, and oh better yet...Dont fill out an entry EVER AGAIN!! See...problem solved!! Your welcome!! :-)
previous camp ground slinger
You mabey didnt fill out the form...but somebody did then for u...only way to have ur info!! You would be surprised how many people didnt fill out the forms, but their kid did for them or husband...etc...i ofcourse see ur point why!! :-) just wanted to mabey reassure you ur info on that contest form didnt appear outta thin air!! :-)
Just got a call from Casey saying yeah, I'm a finalist in their 4x4 drawing - they were at the Black Hills Stock Show in Rapid City the beginning of February 2014. No plans to call them back. I don't have time for sales tactics like this!
To good to be true
Got a call from midwest outdoor from Tanya that I was the finalist for the ford at the valleyview mall in lacrosse , wi, she went over my paper I put in for the drawing and apparently wasn't impressed with my annual income and by the end of the phone call she said my name gets put back into the drawing and if picked again someone will call. Well they said I was the finalist in the drawing, sounds like discrimination to me.
All of you come here and question wether or not it's a scam, have you bothered to look them up on BBB or their website www.midwestoutdoorresorts.com ? It is not a scam, it is a legit business and I liked what they had to say/offer. By the way, they are not telemarketers the people that call don't sell anything.
Look up their winners circle page
got a call
When i got the call they never said free gifts they said complimentary which is exactly what they are! Nice tablet and i got a chance at a 50" flatscreen as well!!
Midwest outdoor resorts is a very legitimate buisness, not a scam they just want to let people know about their resorts and company. As far as getting calls over and over again if you never answer they have to call back. If you never fill out an entry form and get a call then someone put your entry form in for you this is the only way they get the info is from an entry form. And details of participation are on the back of the entry form. Yes they will offer a membership to you at the presentation, but you are not under obligation to buy anything. Personally if you put your name addy and phone number on anything why wouldn't you read it completely. The people that are calling are just doing their jobs..don't be mad at them for trying to help you win some complimentary gifts or complimentary camping.
how was it?
A better name would be "turd".
They aren't really "gifts" if they're not free! It's better if they were called "premiums" or "incentives."
I went through the PowerPoint presentation. I didn't buy anything, but kind of wish I had... Just not sure id use it enough. The gifts are good, everything they promised. I find it funny that everyone that complains on this post want the gifts for nothing. They told me up front if i listen to their pitch I'd get gifts, i listened, i got gifts (cool tablet)- its legitimate- the only time you get something for nothing is when you dont want to work and dont want to take responsibility for your actions- then you get government assistance!
I just got this call from Brittany from mid west outdoor resorts, different number than what is posted here!
The number is 1-605-399-7862, I was told that im a finalist in a drawing for and f150 pick up and $20,000....well i never gave them any of my information, and i just listened to the speil., but somehow all my information was on there and it all was correct, it makes a person wonder how they actually got my information in the first place? Inever enter anything nor do i ever give out any of my information! So im gonna check it out this weekend, then im most likely going ot report this to the better business bureau, seems to good to be true! If you never enter how could you win? or how would they have my information? It makes a person wonder what in the hell is actually going on!
Went to their presentation the other day in Bloomington. They don't sell timeshares, but sell a membership for several thousand dollars. The whole thing lasted 2 hours, but we got a free PC tablet and a voucher for a 2-night hotel stay. Not too bad for gifts. They weren't too pushy or annoying, and were decent when we said we weren't interested. They wished us well and gave us a handshake. I recommend going for the gifts.
Somebody named Ted left me a message to call him back at this number. I could not understand what it was about because there was a lot of background noise. Sounds like a bunch of high school kids with a phone book and nothing better to do with their time.
Sorry it's not a scam they arrnt a time share!! just family camp grounds Minn. And here in .sd. they've given away the 20,000 twice already and several atvs and fourwheelers . You get the gift cards just for coming in and they even offer a free stay in their park . So it's not a scam or time share . Odds are way better than a lottery !! And you have to enter before you can be called read the entry form ! It tells u on there in black n white. I liked my prizes loved our stay at camp ground and the staff. Is wonderful
Just got this same voicemail from "Star" stating she was from Midwest Outdoors and I had registered to win a 4-wheeler or $5,000 in cash (yeh right) and (of course) I was selected as a "finalist" and I need to call her back "right away" so she can get more information ... I may have been born at night, but it sure wasn't last night ....

I was told that everyone is a finalist that meets the specifications. It is apparently on the back of the entry form? I was also told it took them four years to give the last truck away! SCAM!!

This company is a fraud! Do not take their calls. Shut them down! They lure you in with the promise of prizes and winnings and are after people that make over 45,000 per year. It is all about your income. If you are a single male you can not win. Was told this by some guy names Russell. He told me to make up a girlfriend, as it was the only way I could win.
I have now received two voice mails from the this company. One was a female and the other a male. I called the guy back today since he unfortunately sounded sincere and had to leave a VM. The person who transferred me sounded like she was from another country and she didn't speak great english. I will play along next time they call to see what he has to say. Sorry no info given out unless I have all the facts. I do remember entering a contest for a vehicle a couple different times at places but I highly doubt I am being selected as a finalist. I bet everyone who entered was selected as a finalist.
got a call from this place know now its a scam... long time ago was same place but called Hart ranch.
In the 80s they gave away small tvs and you could win a bigger prize if your name was in another final drawing. same place only names have changed.
Got the same call, sat thru there 90 min. Power Point presention. They seem legit, got $200.00 gift card and $30.00 to TGI Fridays plus some prints not worth much more than $10.00. Heck not a bad deal.
I keep receiving these messages too. I entered a raffle for an RTV at the Carver County Fair last summer. The raffle box had a sign on it promising that none of my information would be redistributed and that no one was trying to sell me anything. If it weren't for this deceptive sign, I never would have signed up. The fair was in August and I am still getting phone calls. They always identify themselves as different females from Midwest Outdoor Resorts and tell me to call 800-401-1904 to give them more information. I knew something was fishy when I received the calls so long after I entered the drawing. Despite being seasonally laid off, I value my time on this earth more than I do some gift cards and some "art". I wouldn't be at all surprised if these people shared any additional info I gave them.
