Won a prize from Diamond Resorts. Will be presented to me by Mr. Cloobeck himself! All lies just BS to try and sell time share points!
Receive a call on our business line from this number with no voicemail left after no answer. Based on this thread, have blocked it. Thanks to everyone who took the time to post their experiences.
Brenda Reynolds called claiming she represented Diamond Resorts International. She knew both my husband and my names and called my cell phone to say they had an exciting deal for us. When I returned her call at 888-342-7935, I got a recording and no way to leave a message, or to use Brenda's extension #62. It's a puzzle and a huge waste of valuable time!
I got the same call and a message saying "having great news for me". After reading all you your comments here, I am sure not calling them back.
Simply call the number from another number (work if you can). Advise the answering party that you need your number(s) removed from their calling database. Note the person's name, the date called and the time. Per Federal Law they have to remove your number in a specific timeframe (I believe it is up to 30 days). After that time, if calls persist, file a complaint through the Federal website, ftc.gov.

A lady called my house at 11:00am and left a message stating that I won a prize after filling out some form at an AMC theater. The last time I went to a theater it was to see Magic Mike, and it was not an AMC theater, it was an Edwards theater, and before then it was 2 or so years that I went to a movie.
You can't BS a BSer.
i continue to recieve calls from 951-905-5380. Please removed my number from your calling list.
I just went through the call with a lady called Chantilly. She was open about what the promoition is, and how it works. We did fill in the fomr at the mall so i had seen the bottom of the entry form fine print regarding the timeshare promotion. we all need to read the fine print - don't be shocked - they need to find customers somewhere.
we may go, i'd like to get the free prizes as i have done this before on a HIlton resorts promotion - they were trying to sell timeshare in Vegas and you got a free week in the resort for going to the weekend presentaion - which was hard sell and painful, but the week in the resort was very nice - i think a dinner gift certificate came with it.
Frankly if you go in with eyes opne, you can take a few nice gifts. if you have the money and travel often to resorts, timeshare can be good but you need to manage it and understand how to get the best out of it,
i just got a call about an hour ago saying to go to encino. has anybody went to one of these 100,000 dollar drawings and walked away with any of the prizes? im supposed to go on saturday
Total scam!!! First of all, they couldn't tell me what car I had entered to win, nor the city in which I had applied. Their response was, "well you applied, don't you remember where?" Second, I had entered my sons name (he was 5 at the time) just so that he would have something to look forward to, and the telemarketer responded with, "you are the mother right, and took my name." Really, a 5yr. old can enter and claim a 100,000 dollar prize and you call the home number and ask to speak to him because he won???
As I was on the phone with them I went on-line and noticed the companies negative reviews and brought them up. The telemarketer; Felishia, Ildako (who's been with the company 7yrs. as she may claim), and Damond Gatewood, each responded with "what, this is no scam, let me call you back and see why soo many others have called you...
By the way, they are using a new numbers
Igot a call from 951-905-5387 named Peggy, she informed me of choosing as a winner (I've filled out a form in Topanga mall) and now I should choose a ticket and after scratching either I win $100000 or a choice of 5 gifts, I told her I am not interested in time-sharing and she said u'll have your prize anyway and there is no oblige to be interested in time-sharing, now I dont know what to do ???please give me some advice my app is on Fri. . . .
Just got a call from these Pacific Monarch group claiming i won a prize for filling out one of those forms a while ago at a mall i barely remembered. Good thing i check online about this though.
Hey scammers need suckers err I mean victims, why not u LOL!
Hmmm Sooo I guess im one of those dumb people and made an appt for Sat. So is it worth going????
file a complaint with the FTC
I strongly suggest filing a complaint with the FTC. These people have been harassing me for the past year. Even with being on the DO NOT CALL LIST, and asking them several times to remove me from their list, they still call. Not only that, but they always call from a different number Its come to the point where I cuss them out and hang up on them. This is getting rediculous!
Thanks for the break down. It's never 90 mins is it.
I received a call and OMG same thing and same tricks. I wonder how can I report this to any investigative authority. I just told the guys please do not bother me again. I hope they will not do that any more.
Me too. Got that call from Maurice. I was listening because I know my husband had entered at Fair. My own history from signing entry forms already knew it was some kinda presentation. Car & money will not be awarded but the tickets for travel & a stay in a timeshare will be given for sure. NO THANKS!!! I can't take that trip.
i hate scams
Just received a call from 951-905-5387. A woman named Dana called me and told me that I entered a contest at the AV Mall. She said that I won something. I have to pick from either a car, cash or an all expense paid vacation for two. I was quite skeptical but i allowed her to continue. She also said that I must bring my husband to get my prize and that they had babysitters if I needed one. Her name was Dana and it sound like I was the hundredth person she gave that spill to. Honestly if someone was giving away a car would they do it in a more officially way rather then a "telemarketer" type call. I know its a scam to reel you in to purchase something but why start with lie? Just tell me what your selling and maybe I will or will not buy it!
I got the same call from Deloris @ the Gift Center from 619-858-3120 this past Monday (a Holiday) and told her I didn't have time to talk. She said she would call back and leave a message which she did. I finally was able to listen to the message last night and decided to call back today to see what "I Won" which I was told was a car or 100,000 bucks plus the additional prize of a 2 night stay in Vegas, bla, bla, bla, or Catalina Island. I was transferred to x57 and didn't leave a message however I was called right back. I didn't answer but Deloris left another message saying that she was returning my call and that she didn't know my last name. I don't think that I will be calling them back after reading all the posts on here. PS - I was told that I had signed up at FishFest.
Just fell for the same thing we enetered at the local mall to win a car so they called up acting like we did win the car till I googled thankfully!
I just got the call from number: 951 905 5387
and caller ID going by : Great America N.
Won't get fooled again!
I received a call from (619) 858-3120 located in the San Diego, CA area. The caller identified himself as "Rico". "Rico" initially stated my name was drawn as a winner from a contest I entered at a movie theater, and I had won $100,000 or a new 2011 Mercedes-Benz. In order to claim my prize I had to attend a live drawing at 4590 McArthur Blvd Suite 100 in Newport Beach, CA 92660. During this live drawing for $100k or a new car, which is preceded by a 90 minute presentation on time shares and travel packages. "Rico" also stated if I didn't win the cash or the car I'd get a definite prize of either: 1)A trip to Las Vegas or 2)cruise to Cancun or 3)cruise to the Bahamas or 4)tickets to an amusement park in Southern California. What a scam! The old bait (you won a valuable prized) and switch (buy a timeshare or vacation package). Don't waste your time.
they keep calling me saying that i filled out a form at a mall and won $100,00. Didn't even bother calling back!!
I have been receiving numereous calls for the last 2 weeks. Most of the time I am not home. However, on Friday, April 4th, they called to say I won something. I told them I don't remember entering anything & to please take me off their list.
This morning at 9 AM I got another call & I let them go further where they wanted me to set up an appointment either tonight or tomorrow. They wanted to know if I was married or not; if my income was about a certain amount; and if I came by myself to state that I was single otherwise I could not get a prize. The prize would be waiting for me & there was a location in my town. Plus she was going to give me the address & email address but I could not find a piece of paper, nor was I going to write it down really.
This time not only did I have the telephone phone, the company name showed this time as Pacific Monarch. So, I looked on-line & saw that it is a time-shared place.
I want to be put on a 'DO NOT CALL LIST'. I did call the local Pacific Monarch & they said I should just call the number. I was afraid to call a 900 number from other stories I have heard in the past.
Just tried calling abck and they keep hanging up on me! Not so great on their marketing are they?
I have 2 voicemails from Maurice Kennedy from PMR's Gift Center, calling about an entry form to win a car filled out at the T-Mobile booth at the Moreno Valley Mall on Feb 28th. Has great news for me, needs me to call back ASAP at 888-342-7935. Knows my full name and spouse's name.
Now, I have once or twice filled out those entry forms when I see the car display at the mall, but I'm quite certain I've never ever been to the Moreno Valley Mall in my life.
I won't be calling back.
Went to a movie and filled out the form. Was left a message last night to call back today after 3pm and before 9pm. Strange hours for a bussiness if you ask me. I called back after 3pm from a different number than the one I put on the form and was told that Julie at Ext 79 wouldn't be in until after 5pm. However her distinct message told me after 3pm (twice). Fine. They aswered the phone quickly and I didn't catch the name of the company but now that I've looked it up a couple of times I think I might skip it.
Got a call this morning from 951-905-5380(Pacific Monarch), left a voice message and told me that I filled out a form in Santa Anita Mall and won $100,000. Asked me to call him back at 888-342-7935 Ex52.
My wife and I both missed a call from this number today. A gal named Dana left a message on my wife's phone explaining that she was from a PMR GIfting Center and that we had filled out an entry form when we went to see the movie "Hancock." She wanted us to call back between 9am and 5pm. The funny thing is is that we never went to see the movie "Hancock" at the theater. I'm skeptical but I will call back tommorrow and see what kind of scam they're running.
