One day im at my parents house and im goin through my mail which is still being delivered there. I come across this little vacation package , it looks like a check book. This travel package from Imperial Majesty Cruise Line Vacations notifies me" I HAVE WON A FREE CRUISE FOR 2 ADULTS AND A TRAVEL VOUCHER OF 1300$!!''.
These scam artists tried there luck with me in June of 2007. I was at the swimming pool and my cell rings( I still dont know how they got my number). They told me the same thing i saw right now in front me. '' I AM THE LUCKY WINNER OF A DREAM VACATION...OUT OF 10 000 PEOPLE A COMPUTER CHOSE MY NAME FOR AN ALL EXPENSED PAID VACATION FOR ME AND MY WIFE OR GF''.
After about 10 min this scammer realized theres no way i had my credit card near me since i was at the swimming pool and he could not use his script effectively with the sound of kids screaming around me. He said he would call me back later that evening...he did.
After babbling on and on for about 25 min about how lucky i am and mentioning all these spectacular places I will be going with my gf and my personal favorite, ," YOUR GF WILL BE SO SURPRISED IF U PLAN THIS AS A SECRET ROMANTIC VACATION'', he mentions that the trip has a total value of over 3000$ and all I have to PAY is the SMALL FEE OF 698$ IMMEDIATLY WITH MY CREDIT CARD OR THE WOULD HAVE TO CALL SOMEONE ELSE!!
I asked this scammer for a number to call him back because I wanted to discuss this with my gf,( which was not true because i smelled his bull a mile away), he said he cant and i would have to decise immediatly what was gonna b my decsion...I told him '' WELL I GUESS THE NEXT CALL YOUR GONNA MAKE MIGHT BE YOUR LUCKY VICTIM, I REFUSE TO GIVE U MY CREDIT CARD AND HUNG UP.
Now 9 months later, they try there luck again with me, hoping i had amnesia and had forgotten about this summer.
This time i said that i will play with these losers minds. I spent 45 min with them on the phone and made it seem like they had suckered me in badly. I told them i was willing to pay for 6 other people if they made me a special deal.
I was never treated like royality like this, they babbled so much about flights, free cars, free gas, extra bonus trips,...sounded like i won the jackpot on the lottery.
Then came the time for them to validate this with my credit card..lol. I tell the guy to hold on for a few min because i just moved back home at my parents place and i have to find the box that my credit cards are in. He tells me '' YOU DONT HAVE YOUR CREDIT CARD IN YOUR WALLET?''...I reply, '' I NEVER USE THEM BUT WHEN ITS A CHANCE IN A LIFETIME LIKE THIS ITS WORTH IT..LOL''
This sucker actually replies '' YOUR A VERY SMART MAN AND KNOW WHEN ITS YOUR LUCKY DAY''.....I put him on hold for 15 min, he did not hang up. Finally i decided to scare him off. He asked me why i took so long i replied...'' WELL IT TOOK ME A LITTLE BIT OF TIME TO CONTACT THE FRAUD DEPT HERE IN CANADA AND PLAY THEM SOME OF THE TAPE I RECORED OF OUR CONVERATION''
The sucker hung up....I REALLY HOPE THIS STORY HELPS CONVICT THESE FRAUD ARTISTS.
