Thursday I was researching information about hummingbirds when all of a sudden my screen changed to a flashing blue and white message that I was the 100th shopper on this site today and I hd won my choice of a $1ooo Visa Card, a $1000 Wall Mart shopping card or some Ipok lap top. I chose the visa card and then they needed information to to proc ess my prize. name, address, birthdate, phone and cell phone number, ..oh, and my title, ms, mr, miss mrs
. The only thing that they didn't ask for was my social security number. Once the information was given they gave me choices of secondary gifts and then the information questions started all over again. I exited the site and today I got a card from a company selling me a cupon card and for buying it, $60 free gas cupons. I reported to the person that I was very alarmed that they had my cell number because I was to have won a free $1000 visa card. She was very nice and gave me a cancellation numb er, 1 877 488 9480 and your name, Average American to get in touch with on line. Please look into this for me as I don't know what else to do.
I just got a phonecall stating that I was to have won a $50 gift card and I told them that it was suppose to have been $1000 and he said, OK..I asked what organization he represented and he hung up. I looked on my caller ID and saw the name Pro Support. The number was 201 4719853. please help.
They also use 888-440-9376 &808-637-7243
I get one from a number in Florida 786-358-5655 and tells me I have one free prizes. It gives me an 855 to call back which I didn't do because I know these numbers are scams and I'm on a do not call list.
I recieved the same call from 512-456-5160. When I call the number back it rings 1 time and hangs up. This is some type of scam and I would like to know how they got my number
They called me as well saying I won a $40 gift card.... When I called they said they my number want recongized... :(
called from (1-443-200-4680)
told me to call (1-888-440-9376)
Mentor to Young Adults
Number 512-456-5160 called today to inform someone had received a $40 Visa Card. After calling number back, knowing that I do not fill out surveys online due to most are scams or required additional information about personal information, young man said that a young friend of mine had taken the Average American Survey and has won a $40 Visa Card. He asked if I was the mom after telling him I have a 15 year old son that has been known to use surveys online without my knowledge to get his start as an entrepreneur...HAHA Anyway, once he told me the first last name of my friend, I knew this was more than likely a scam. He also told me that he could not give me a call back number because these numbers are regenerated.
Surveying on line is very risky. Consider calling the BBB to find out more information about survey.
Concerned Average American
Got a voice message on my phone twice already and was offered a $40.00 Visa Gift Card. When i called back the # their recording said it did not recognize my phone # and asked to submit my phone 3 times and I did. The recording said it did not recognize my phone #. I did this 3 times. This has to be a scam and these calls are very annoying. Who ever or whatever this place is should be reported! They said I won the $40.00 Visa card for filling out a survey which I have filled out survey's on the internet for money(which I never received) and I never as of yet received anything except these bogus calls.
Everyone calling it a scam.... Did you try it? Obviously not cause it isnt a scam. And it doesnt say "you won a visa giftcard" it says youve been selected to receive one for trying there service for 30 days. Its not a scam. I tried it, cancelled the service the firstday I got it, and got a 40 dollar visa!!! You guys are dumb.
I have contacted the BBB And the FBI Are Going to conduct an investigation in this matter serves them right when folks are going thru hard times and around the Holidays how cruel
Phone Number They Said to Call Is
I just received a call from this number as well saying I will get a $40.00 Visa card for the Average American Survey. I called it back and it says that it doesn't recognize the number and to put the number I had registered under, when I put that number it, it put me to another area and I got a busy call (Like a disconnect). When I called it back, it just said good bye and hangs up.
the phone# I ahve a call from is 917-398-9559, slight variation. Calling back on land line gets another voice mail. rlm
Its not a scam. I work there.. It really is a money saving rewards program. If you don't want to be bothered by it, answer and ask to be put on the do not call list and ask for the masterdailer 1-800 number it will take some time but you'll be out of the system. And also, dont apply online for the giddy cards and taking surveys. It'll put you right back in the system. But yeah, the services are great and its not a scram.
they called and stated i won a 2600 cancun travel points. What is this, after u press one they hang up
I'm a sucker for a good offer. Turns out when I opted in to an offer for a free iPad, these clowns got my info - though they were not the marketing company offering the iPad.
Anyway, watch what you ask for. Any time you opt in to an online offer and provide your phone number, you've essentially provided permission for the host and their affiliates to market to you.
Not sure how to get out of it, texts are easy enough, but calls are another story.
Good luck all!
Got a call from this number today that I had been awarded a cash card, Then they claimed a problem with echoing and would call me back
$100? $50? They offered me only $40!
Completely my fault. I didn't even finish the survey just minuets ago and am already getting call. I feel like an idiot! Never again!
I keep getting these calls daily but when the phone is answered no one is there, and no one leaves a message. We are on the NO CALL LIST yet they keep calling.
I got a call from this number saying i have won a cruse for 4 to cancun mexico and a visa gift card i hung up then
These fools called my work and left a message for $40 visa card. Go to hell idiots!
reiceived a recorded message from number 917-398-5596 thanking me for participating in average american survey and to call 855-556-2220 for my free $40.00 walmart gift card. tried to call them back to get taken off there call list and all the message said was "good bye". i'm on the do not call list and i will definately report them each and everytime they call!
They are calling you because you gave them your phone number at sometime via another website.
So its not a violation of the do not call laws
Trilegient has been sued by the FTC for deceptive business practices. they use special offers on retailer websites with their OWN terms and conditions - separate from the retailer
by taking the $$ off offers - you are signing yourself up for a worthless membership program that results in monthly charges to your credit or debit card.
they get away with it because most people never bother to read the terms and conditions they agree to when they use websites - then cry unauthorized charges - that were authorized simply by using that offer.
They also use Customer Loyalty Checks with your credit card companies - usually about $7-$8 checks. These checks clearly state on the back that by cashing the check you are being enrolled in a membership program with monthly fees - most people cash the check without reading the back!
I HAVE THE NUMBER TO THEIR OFFICE!!!.. the women called me, claiming to have a $100 visa reward for me.. as soon as I was able to get a word in.. I said "Ma'am.. it is my obligation to inform you that this call is being recorded... could I please have the Name of your company?" she replied "Trilagent" .. I responded "Great, Thank you, now can I please be removed from your call list, and would you kindly give me the number to your office"... she wasn't sure what the number was.. continued to tell me that it was the number on my caller id.. I informed her that I didn't have caller id (which I did.. but knew darn well that number would lead me know where) so she continued to dig around for her notes on her desk and said.. "Here is the number I call, when I need to call in sick... 727-369-2700. Hopefully some legal action will be taken on this company TRILAGENT at 727-369-2700 before they are able to close shop and open up somewhere else do to my blowing the whistle here on their name and number.
Best of luck to you all.
