  1. November 17th received text message I had won $1000. Target gift card. Shut them down! Times are hard and a gift card would have been a great blessing at this time of year. To find out it is a fake dashes ones hopes, and gives Target a very bad name. Phone number that contacted me was 612-714-7271

  2. I think target should be responsible for this FALSE texting. At least they should be doing the investigating to find out why and do some heavy fining!!!

  3. I also received a message from you to go to targetprizes.com and enter code 4787 to claim your free $1000 target gift card within 24 hours. It developed into nothing but disappointment. It appears that the person sending out these announcements major on those who are excited about having a Christmas this year.

  4. I just recieved the same text as everyone else from 985-259-1078 at 6:09pm. About 2 weeks ago I filled out a servey for them, thinking that by helping them out…I could possibly have a chance to win. I was so excited when I got this text because I was going to us it on getting Christmas gifts for my family, since I'm kind of hurting for money this year with buying a car. Went to the website and it said that there is no such website. So I googled it and came across this site, full of complaints!

    They shouldnt be allowed to do this! Just not right!

  5. I am the only one that got the $1000 gift card? You guys gotta make sure the cap-locks are off when you enter the code… retards…

  6. Complaint. I received a text on my phone it said. Targetprizes.com I went to that sight and I find nothin. What is the deal. Hear. The need to get into trouble for false texting.

  7. Thank you all for posting! It is helpful that with just a little bit of research we can actually catch a scam before being caught by a scam. I got same text today, Looked it up, saw all this info and got the answer I was looking for. Thank you again all for posting.

  8. I received the same text November 13th 2012. It is a scam, the website wants you to purchase a bunch of stuff to be eligible to win the gift card.

  9. I received the identical message tonight around the same time as Christine. The fact that I haven't entered anything was my first clue that this was a scam. The clincher was the "Time Left" clock, showing I had 5 minutes left to claim my prize– totally impossible if I really had 24 hours to claim my prize from the time my text message arrived.

    If you're still thinking of trying this "contest" out, take a look at the TargetPrizes.com very fine print Privacy Policy. It looks like the parent company website is prizecenterdirect.us and they are an affiliate company. While the middle bit about sharing opt-out information with other companies so they can cease sending offers to uninterested people sounds commendable, I'm a bit put off by this ending blanket-statement:

    "We reserve the right to share with 3rd parties the information we collect on this site for any purpose."

    Yikes! Here's the whole thing, and hope this helps!:

  10. I also received the same message on Nov 13th I got on the site, read the scams and didn't try any further This is too bad as it is giving Target a bad name

  11. I also received the same message this November 13 and thanks to the previous 2 postings, I knew it was another one of those scams. If it is too good to be true, it is really too good
