I signed up for a promotion at a local county fair in South Dakota about a month ago.  I got a phone call from 1-954-454-9554

Chrissy told me Congratulaions, and that I was one of 50 families selected to go on an unbelievable vacation package.  This package included:

5 days and 4 nights at an Orlando Resort near Disneyland.  I would be responsible only for room tax and room service.  There would be free shuttle transportation, as well as Buy 1 Get 1 theme park passes.   It also came with a $500 Orlando "Fun Pack", which gave 2 for 1 deals on restaurants, and shopping discounts.

3  days, 2 nights in Daytona Beach, and 3 days or 2 nights in Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach.  This would includ accomodations at the Ocean Front hotel, or Radisson, Marriott, etc.

Included one of 2 Bahamas cruise options,

A Las Vegas package.

This was a deal that would retail for well over $4,000.

 Restrictions are:

  • Must travel within 3 years
  • Must give 30 days notice to changes in plans
  • You must immediately pay $299 for 2 people = $498 to register for the trip.

There are NO restrictions on:

Travel time, transferrable between family and friends, and the packages can be broken up as necessary.

At this point they asked for my credit card information.  I asked them for some verification of what I had won.  I was transferred to a man who seemed a bit surly:

"We didn't say you won anything.  In fact the fine print on the bottom of that form says we have the ability to contact you with these promotions.  Nobody ever reads the fine print." 

"Well, I'd like to make sure this is not a scam promotion. "

"Of course, we deal with large businesses all the time, so I can assure you we are not a scam.  What we do is go through a major credit card so you can dispute this if necessary."

"I'd like some way to verify this is an actual offer." 

"Well, once we hang up, your offer goes to the next family on the list, and you won't probably hear from us again." 

"I'm OK with that."

"OK, we will be glad to help you with any other travel arrangements you need."

I did not pay money to them, but did find the address with other names of companies online at the exact same address.  They are listed as Magical Dream Escapes, Florida Caribbean Travel, and MySunnyTravels.com.  For a large company, it's unusual to have a website hosted with a free web-hosting service.

Just wanted to update the name of the business, and that they're still in operation.
