Dear sir, I would like too report what is to me a 'Scam'.
On the 13th of october, this year ( 2008 ) I was contacted by telephone, Informing me that I had "WON" a free holiday to Florida, As you can imagine, I was very surprised, ( I had ticked a box asking where I would like to go in America for a holiday 'If ' I won a holiday) But being 67 years of age and 'not' in the best of health, I didn't really expect to win anything.
So when the person I was talking to said, It was 'HOTMAIL' who were promoting It, and I was the Only one from the UK to have won, It did seem to be plausible, and therefore I listened to what he had to say, But, instead of having to pay a deposit, he informed me I would have to pay 798 Dollars! that is 473.71, I told him that it was impossible to pay that amount because I only had 100,00 in my account.
The response I got from him was "TOO LATE" we have already taken it out! you must of had more than you think in your account, I defininately did NOT give him permssion to take money out of my account!!
I know how much I had! because being a Pensioner I have to be careful of how I spend my money, I did have a 300 overdraft in place, in case of emergencies, and what he did was to go over that amount and put me in the 'Red', consequently, I had to borrow money to put myself back in the black, and now I am in debt to other people because of his behaviour.
They had given me a e-mail address, and telephone number to contact them if I had any doubts about anything that worried me, Well, I have tried to phone them with NO reply, and I have sent e-mails with NO response.
So PLEASE if you can do anything about this I would be very grateful, I just want my money back, and no more hassle, and a peacful life.
I remain yours thankfully, Robert
P.S if you require more information, please let me know!!
