I had 4 minutes to respond or I would forfeit my prize of $3000 worth of travel. I was given a dazzling expose about my holiday that Id just won. 6 days in Orlando, 4 days in Daytona, 4 days in the Bahamas - such an exciting trip. Couldnt believe my luck. By now I had asked what the catch was- they said there was none. They walked me through the website and then told me to click on a tab which then told me I had to pay $898 toward the trip. Then saw the Visa, credit card bit and had alarm bells going off. I had no idea who these people were or if they were legitimate. When I told them I dont have a credit card, but only a debit card with not enough money it it, they put me onto another person who said he was rthe director of the company. He put on an almost begging voice asking me if I could get the money. When it was clear I wasnt forth coming he said they couldnt hold the holiday over for me because if they did they "would have all these people waiting for their next pay check, waiting till they talked to their spouses....." So with that I said oh well I will have to cancel. I was cagey from the word go. I mean has anyone here been on the actual holiday and seen if its legit??? Im from New Zealand. Thank goodness I didnt have a credit card as it is so easy to get sucked into the emotion of it as they are very good with their sales pitch. I cant say I was ripped off bcause I never gave them any money. They also wanted my physical address so they could post me the hard copy of the travel tickets etc.
