Complaining on a board like this (and scambusters, where I originally posted this) is great if someone does decide to do their homework prior to working with a business. But attractive promises and easy qualifying sometimes clouds our logic a bit. So what happens is, people come here after it is too late, doing their 20/20 hindsight research and finding out that they are one of many victims. If you are a victim (or if you figured out their scam and stopped them cold) and want to truly keep anyone else from becoming a victim, they need to be stopped, not talked about. That means they have to be reported to all authorities. Someone knows where they are. They may not be a victim right now or they may be and just not know it, but they are aware of these people's whereabouts. There is a way to confidentially report them. Even on this page it is confidential. Ignore the "I know who you are" comments. That's a bully tactic. Goes hand in hand with their tactics on the phone too. I am using a private account that they cannot hack or trace, so don't worry about some IP chaser telling them where you are. If you email me with your story, I will provide you with all of the links that you need in order to report these people on the state and federal levels. These entities do require your name but will keep your information secure. I will also share some other information that you might find helpful in your reporting and also in pursuing any relief options that might present themselves to you including securing a restraining order in case someone wants to go all mafia/gangsta on you. I will not charge you for any of my help. You don't even have to tell me your real name. If you are one of the persons being accused, you can email me, however, you will not stop me from sharing the resources that I have. Also I will not share any data as to who contacts me.

They are still at it. Received a call this morning asking me to call Mr. Russell about claiming my prize, indicating it would be either a Ford Explorer, $25,000, a vacation, or a flat screen TV. Glad I checked this site. They are now using a different name. Sounded like Prize Services. When I called back, they wanted to have my husband and I go to a 90 minute Time Share presentation and then claim our prize in Branson, MISSOURI.

My friend  has also got several of the same calls.We are in Tn.

Christopher from Vandale Communications stating that this is not a telemarketer call; I had entered into some type of a contest and won. I needed to call Christopher back at 1-866-312-9553.

Note: The message was left on my answering machine and it was very difficult to understand it; poor quality.

I received a call at 7am on Sunday morning.  It was from Michelle at 866.132.9553 x243 (caller ID 713.891.5637) and said that I had registered to win a car and I had been chosen to receive one of the top four prizes and to call back the above number.  When I called and entered an extension of 243, I reached the voice mail of Joseph. I called back and reached the same message.  I did leave my first name and phone number but wish I hadn't.  I have not heard back from them and will report this to the do not call list to which I belong.

Dude, the scam is that you're not supposed to call someone who has their number on a no-call list, regardless, period, end of story.  By violating that law, you've submitted yourself to prosecution, and if/when enough complaints are filed with the attorney general, you WILL be prosecuted.  I'll see you there. ;)

I got the same call: Christopher (who was not very articulate) from Vandale Communications, saying I had won one of the top four prizes when I entered in the past 12-18 months to win a car. Number was 866-312-9553, ext. 109.Caller ID identified it as coming from Illinois.  I just don't trust anything like this. And I never entered to win a car in the past year. I'll be ignoring Christopher!

we got the same call from Christopher at ext. 109 saying we had won a prize.  Has anybody returned the call or can give any further information as to what they tell you when you actually talk to them?

I called back just to see what was going on and what is scary is that when you call the company has a directory.  Extension 109 was supposed to be CHristopher but, was directed to a Michelle (voicemail).  I won't be calling back but, if they do call me  back I will ask them to take me off the call list.  Its the 3 rd call I have recieved.

Received the same call as everyone else.  My caller ID listed "Vandell Communications" at 708-801-9978 and I was given the same 1-866-312-9553 x 109 number to call Christopher.  I knew it was a scam.  I never enter raffles or give my personal information out to unknown people,organizations etc.  This is exactly the reason why.

I got the same message.  Love the fact that they mention the do not call list so they must know I am on it, but they ignore it anyway.  (No, I never entered a contest, or anything like that, and they have not been trying to reach me or I would have had messages, etc.)  
I filed a complaint at DoNotCall.gov, but from reading the messages here it does not seem to make a difference.

BTW - here is the Vonage transcript

"Hi this is Christopher calling from Banfield communications. I have made numerous attempt to reach you regarding answer form that was put out in your name within the last 18 must be a car. This will go about quarter to notify that your name was pulled and you gonna receive one of our top four major prices would be your best interest to give me a call back as soon as possible. My number is toll free at 86631295536109. Again that is 1-866-312-9553 ext. 10961 at a telemarketing agency or timeshare. This is not a cold call. So please like nor this message. I bare where to do not call list. I wouldn't be calling unless you actually enter. This is the time sensitive matter. I do look forward to hearing from you. Once again congratulations, my name is Christopher "

I got the same calls as everyone else from Christopher, x109.  I called back once, and it went to someone else's VM, didn't leave a message.  Called just now and someone picked up which conveniently is x111.    I listed to the B.S out of curiousity and they think I am going to show up somewhere tomorrow at 3pm to claim my prize.  It's a scam to have you sit through a presentation about joining a travel membership club.  I am sure you will get a prize but it won't be a car.  It would probably be an ice scraper or something stupid.
