I RECEIVED A CALL WHILE IN KENTUCKY TELLING ME " I

WON A $2,000.00 TRIP ANYWHERE I WANT TO GO IN THE CONTINENTAL USA  ALL I HAD TO

PAY WAS $50.00 FOR TAXES"...I ASKED THE REPRESENTATIVE SEVERAL TIMES IF THIS WAS

LIKE A TIME SHARE OR A SEMINAR SELLING ME STUFF...HER REPLY WAS NO..I MENTIONED

AN ALASKAN CRUISE, SHE EVEN SAID WE COULD USE THE "$2,000.00 TOWARDS THE CRUISE

AND PAY THE DIFFERENCE"...OF COURSE, IT WAS A SEMINAR TRYING TO SELL ME A MODERN

DAY TIME SHARE..AS SOON AS WE SIT DOWN WITH AN  INDIVIDUAL REPRESENTATIVE AND HE

REALIZED I HAD JUST LOST MY JOB AND MY FIANCE' IS A UNION WORKER THAT HAS TO

WAIT FOR WORK TO COME. I WENT TO A BRIDAL SHOW AND WON THE GRAND PRIZE OF

$10,000.00 IN MERCHANDISE AND SERVICES FOR MY WEDDING. THE REPRESENTATIVE THAT

CALLED AND TOLD ME I WON A TRIP BECAUSE I FILLED OUT A RAFFLE AT THE BRIDAL

SHOW, OF COURSE IT WAS MORE BELIEVABLE. WE LEFT WITH PAPERWORK TO CHOOSE FROM

SEVERAL TRAVEL PLACES AND OF COURSE NONE OF THE DESTINATIONS IS WHERE WE WANT TO

GO, THEY ARE PLACES THAT ARE GOING TO SUCK MONEY OUT OF US FOR A) A DEPOSIT  B)

TRAVEL EXPENSES TO GET THERE. THE ONE BOGUS OFFER WE SENT FOR SAYS AFTER WE PAY

THE $100.00 WE WILL GET A LIST OF WHERE WE CAN GO WITH THIS OFFER. I'M SURE,

ONCE AGAIN NONE OF THE OPTIONS WILL BE WHERE WE WANT AND PLAN ON GOING AND WILL

ALSO SUCK MONEY OUT OF US FOR TRAVEL EXPENSES. I WAS MISLEAD AND FLAT OUT LIED

TO BY "SAMANTHA" WHOM IS THE ONE THAT CALLED ME ORIGINALLY AND I SCHEDULED MY

APPOINTMENT WITH. SHE IS THE ONE I ASKED SEVERAL TIMES IF THIS WAS LIKE A TIME

SHARE SEMINAR OR SELLING SEMINAR AND WAS TOLD "NO" OVER AND OVER..THAT IS FALSE

ADVERTISEMENT AND FRAUD. I LOST MONEY BY BELIEVING HER BY TRAVELING TO ANN

ARBOR, WERE SHUNNED WHEN GVN REP FOUND OUT WE WERE BOTH BASICALLY UNEMPLOYED.

NOW I HAVE TO SEND $100.00 TO FIND OUT THE OPTIONS OF WHERE WE ARE "ALLOWED" TO

GO...THAT IS NOT "ANYWHERE WE WANT TO GO IN THE CONTINENTAL USA".  I WILL BE

FORWARDING THIS TO THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU, I WILL BE POSTING ON ANY SITE I

FIND WITH YOUR FALSE AND FRAUDULENT ADVERTISING AND I WILL ALSO LET BRIDES TO BE

AND ANY FUTURE BRIDAL SHOW HOSTS KNOW WHAT A SCAM YOU ARE AND HOPEFULLY THEY

WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN THEIR SHOWS WITH YOUR FALSE RAFFLES. WE PLANNED ON USING THIS FOR OUR HONEYMOON, WE'VE MADE OTHER ARRANGEMENTS SINCE WE ARE GETTING MARRIED IN 3 WEEKS. WILL WE USE THE VOUCHERS, PROBABLY NOT BECAUSE WHO KNOWS WHO WILL GET THE $100.00 DEPOSIT AND WHAT EXCUSES THEY COME UP WITH TO KEEP THE DEPOSIT WITHOUT SERVICES RENDERED. I FILED A COMPLAINT WITH THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU, WE'LL SEE WHERE THAT GETS ME..I'M GUESSING NOT ON A CRUISE OR TRIP WITH AIR FARE AND HOTEL INCLUDED LIKE THEY SAID FROM THE BEGINNING.
