Two days later I received a phone call from a man who identified himself as Bob Barker. He told me that I could have the free tickets to sit in the studio audience, however, I would have to pay a $99 processing fee, and also pay $587 for an airline ticket through his company.
Apparently the ticket to The Price is Right is only FREE when you pay a hefty processing fee AND an airline ticket is purchased as well. This was never stated in the ad that I saw and responded to. I have to wonder if this is some kind of a scam, and if this guy I talked to, Mr. Barker, is as legitimate as he claimed to be. Buyer Beware, if this IS some kind of scam indeed. Don't fall for it! And whatever you do, DON'T send any money!
