“ You have been selected for a (fill in the blank) completely FREE! All you have to do is answer a few questions.........

"You stayed at our resort (no, I didn't) and we would like to offer you savings just for you!" (You try the phone number that shows up on the phone and, surprise!(NOT), it is "not in service".

I receive multiple calls per day from a number spoofed to look like mine. Randomly I answer to talk to a manager. No surprise, they hang up. Their name: The Resort Reward Center. Yeah, right. The 100-number limit on my call rejection list is not enough!

Please report your experience at ftc.gov/complaint so it becomes part of the FTC database that's used by investigators nationwide. Your complaints help the FTC and other law enforcement agencies bring scam artists to justice. We can't address complaints that you discuss in the blog comments.

Same thing, can't block enough numbers to keep them from bothering me! The sad thing is they are using real people's phone numbers, like mine!!

I get a call about once a week always from a different "local" fake #. It is always Elizabeth, a woman with a bad, high pitched voice, calling from the Resort Awards Center, a computerized sales call, and it is annoying, and I'm on the Do Not Call registry.

Same company for months and months and months. Also on the Do Not Call registry.
Thinking about taking them to court if I can find out who this really is.

I am also a victim of Elizabeth and her annoying voice, local numbers, what can we do. Resort awards center. also on do not call list.

I got a call from Universal Vacation Resorts trying to sell vacation packages. I was skeptical but told I would have 30 day protection if put on credit card. I bought 3 cruise packages on AMEX. I get contract hours later and there are no terms or product description in contract! I call Universal and they say The contract states you do not have to sign contract and it is Non Refundable. I contact AMEX and they state i gave them my payment info and contract states.... I said what I agreed to on phone is not in contract. They say tough and Universal says tough. I filed complaint today with FTC but they say they can't do anything except tll you who else to contact. The guy did state a contract not signed is not valid. I also have in writing Universal lying to AMEX about me not calling for refund and I called to order a vacation package and I booked a cruise . It is all lies but American Express bought it. I am now in 5th dispute with American Express and Universal. I am waiting on a call back from Morgan and Morgan.

I get this call several times a week and it spoofs the number to look like it's a person in my contacts

This was a pre-recorded message, this time the caller called itself "Elizabeth", and stated that they were calling from the Resort Rewards Center. I have been getting these calls from this "fraudulent" organization for many months, and have received many calls from them. The trouble with these "innocuous" fraudulent Robo-calls is that the computer that is calling you "does not hang up when the recipient hangs up", these computer holds the "victim's" line and will hold it for over a minute, making it dangerous for senior citizens or impaired people, basically holding the line hostage.

Sames as the others. A robot-caller claiming to be Elizabeth from the Resort Rewards Center trying to get me to say "Yes" to her questions so they can route you to someone to take your money. If you don't answer "yes" but instead say something like "tell me more" (no commitment for them to record) she will eventually hang up on you. The spoofed numbers make it impossible for me to block them.
