Call was from 866-701-6753. I listened up to the point where she said it would cost $50 to "activate my account."
Sounded very professional and very legitimate.
I am in area code 603
I figured it was a scam and sure enough...oh and apparently they have made their way to the 205 ( Central Alabama) area code as well.
i did and I have not recieved anything
I am in Tulsa Oklahoma and I also talked to Lee Kennedy At American Broadcast systems and the number I was called from was 888-930-7527. My daughter and I went to the Crown Plaza on south Lewis and we were supposed to get airfare tickets for 2 and a 7 day cruise for 2. This vacation packet was supposed to come in the mail and it has been 3 week. When i call the 888-930-7527 I get a recording to leave a message so i have left 4 messages and Lee has never called me back nor will she answer the phone.
I got the call today. I'm really kind of planning on attending the seminar. Did u happen to find anything else out about this?
Yep I have a 918 area code cell and got a call today too
Andrea, Did you happen to find anything out? I tried to call the hotel and they said they didnt know who i could get ahold of but they transferred me to the room they have booked and no answer...
Brandon, I was wondering the same thing. They said not to the call the hotel, but I'm going to see if their so called travel show even exists. It was the same number that Diane posted and I heard the same recording.
Y'know, I just got a call from the same number listed above by Diane in the 918 area code. My question is this: has anyone actually tried to take advantage of this offer? What happened? I called the number from a public phone and received a recorded message that I would indeed receive everything they promised, minus travel to the airport, port fees, etc. It said I had to go to some sort of travel show.
Has anyone actually done this?
I just got call today free flight out of Tulsa 7 night cruise Carnival or Royal Carribian my area code 918 the number that called was866-701-6573
Giddy in Tulsa
I just love it when people give me free cruises, is a house next?!
I got the same exact call Hannah did today to a 918 cell phone.
I just got this call today to a 918 cell phone number. Caller was Lee Kennedy from American Broadcast System, claiming I'd won a free cruise and airfare, and said that 'people in my office' had entered me or won or something. I wondered if it could be real---usually I have not had people from scam sights give actual names or companies--but I guess not.
I just received a call from this person, on a 202 number. It's my work cell phone, which I hardly ever use, and definitely wouldn't have given out the number to any non-business contacts.

I got the same call from Lee Kennedy. I have a 202 number and she said we could fly to Miami and take a cruise from there or leave from Baltimore.
I just got one of these calls too. from the 877 number. Annoying scammers I guess.
I just received a call also. I received one last year and it's a scam to buy into a travel club for $20,000. It was a pretty shady outfit. I did some research and found that they travel around different states and you don't really get anything.
We just got the same cruise offer voicemail. Now in the 480/602 Phoenix area. But same lee Kennedy and same offer.
It was just a voicemail but has anyone actually gone all the way through the seminar with Tempe? I dd one for a time share once. It was a 7 day vacation in Mexico, I had to sit for one evening through a timeshare presentation. But it was worth the free trip!! Haha. This sounds like a scam if they're asking for personal info upfront.
I have received the same "A person in your household who gave us this contact phone number has won an all expense paid trip...." First of all, my cell is only used by me, and I do not give out my cell number except to family, not even businesses or doctors, so I know no one had supplied this number to them. Secondly, this phone is registered on the DNC list. Third, I just received this cell number less than 3 months ago thru WalMart's StraightTalk, so either StraightTalk is selling these numbers or they are just making random calls. My guess is it is random. I am going to report them to the AG, as well as refering them to this Web site to see that this is an issue that they need to deal with. We have been promised that telemarketers will be prosecuted to give teeth to this law. Although I do not think our attorney general really care about this. Perhaps if we let the public know what percentage of these telemarketers are actually prosecuted....so many of us are tired of this, so many of us have put our numbers onto the dnc lists, perhaps the voting constituency would put their vote behind those who actually live up to their promises.... :)
Received a call today from Lee Kennedy and my phone number is a 765 area code.
Just got the same call myself. Googled the number and found this site. The recording says that I've won a trip for two .....blah, bah, blah.....The recording (left on my voicemail) says that my name AND cell phone number were picked in a drawing from a card I "supposedly" filled out last year at some event. Interesting.....I switched carriers so my cell phone is a new number that I've only had for 2 months. SCAM
Have a 317 area code. Got the same call as others. Glad I checked before going!
My area code is 317 too and just got a call from 877.280.4300. Was not by the phone and guess the scammers did not want to leave a message or their automated system just calls numbers randomly and links the answered calls to the call center.
Got a letter the other week from "American Airways" congratulating me about a pair of round-trip airline tickets I had "won". All may be part of the same F@$%@ scam.
Thanks, eveyone. I got the same, automated call from Lee Kennedy on my cell phone, which I never give out. It's a 765 area code. Looks like they've moved from the 317 area code to 765.
pissed off American
Tired of getting these unsolited phone messages from these scam artists. These people are the scum of the earth. I went to their supposed web site and all of the contact information is invalid. Only the phone number works and if you call it you will be put on their "GOOD PHONE LIST" and they will never leave you alone. I believe these are the same people that were sending out the bogus scam from Nevada. Now they calling from Minnesota. Suppose that we ALL send the Minnesota state attorney general this information.
I just got the same call today. The lady on the phone sounds alot like the telemarketing phone calls I get from Hoosier Park Racing Casino. I"m betting that is where they got my information from signing up for a Players Card. I had actually hoped I won one of their drawings. I will not be attending their Travel Show tomorrow night now. If I did I should go with some of my Law Enforcement friends since I work for the local government here in town. LOL
Just got the 877-280-4300 number from Lee Kennedy. I have a 765 area code number. 2 tickets for a 7 night 8 day cruise.
877-594-6100 is the number that called me saying that I won 2 tickets for a cruise that I entered last year. Person said her name was lee Kennedy from American broadcasting system.
I got a call from this same number just a moment ago. I went through a couple of the audio recordings and they made reference to themselves as "American Broadcast Systems" and that the travel was being done through "Worldwide Travel Resources". They gave me a set of times tomorrow that they are holding a "session" at a local hotel. They kept saying there is no obligation to buy anything now or in the future. Seems very suspicious.
