I was recently contacted by Fulfillment International advising me that I'd won a holiday from an application on the Internet. I wasn't home the first time to take the call, and they did actually call back.

I had won 4 days, 3 nights in Orlando Florida, 4 days, 3 nights in Daytona, a day cruise to the Bahamas finished by 5 days, 4 nights in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. They advised that it was a GB1,750 pacakage and I only had to pay GB534. As you can see I am from the UK. There was also free leather luggage, a digital camera and all transportation between locations, although I had to arrange flights to/from the US.

Not knowing the company and wanting to discuss with my partner first they confirmed they would call back in a couple of days. I was given their website and phone number to call if need be.

As the website didn't have much info about the company I did numerous searches on the Internet to find more out about them. They CANNOT be found using any search engine and DO NOT exist in any US directories.

Fortunately I did not give my credit card details over the phone, but did call to get more info and have requested on several occasions to be given more info about their company via E-mail. This was a few days ago and now they don't even respond back to me.

I was very tempted with this package but am a little sceptical and now with good cause. No matter how good it sounds, they are definitely out to rip people off.

#1 UPDATE Employee

Sounds too good to be true?

AUTHOR: Mike - ()

Companies all around the world use one type of sales tactic or another to lure in customers. When there are ads in newspapers about cars for example, they will show a very low monthly payment in big letters and then have fine print on the bottom stating the realstic prices.

Some people read the fine print and others don't. In this particular case people are given the opportunity to fill out a ballot over the internet to win a vacation.

What people don't realize is that there in fact is a fee. However when you do break it (the fee) down, it really isn't alot of money, people are in fact getting a great holliday at a highly discounted price plus they are getting material belongings such as a digital camera or luggage. The main reason for giving these vacations away is to provide people (consumers) the opportunity to purchase one of their time shares.

After all you always need to give something to get something in return and in this case it's 2 hours of your time to view a timeshare while your on your incredibly discounted holliday.
As far as not being listed in a business directory is concerned... If people only knew how many companies (small and large) there are in the US alone who are not and will not be listed in directories, yet these companies are still very legitimate and succesful companies.So does this mean that they are "rip off's" as well? I certainly don't think so.

Lastly, if you are not completely satisfied with a product whether it be a vacation package or a sewing machine, when purchased by credit card, you will always have the ability to cancel the transaction through your credit card company!

#2 Consumer Suggestion

Stay away from ANY travel you won.....

AUTHOR: anti - ()

Here, in US this always means trouble....

Only companies who are unable to sell their trips fake these kind of price trips, to give the illusion as if millions were competing for the very few free places in their trips.



If you want to read about this sales tactics, check this site or other sites for : Ramada Plaza Resort (RPR) scams...EVERYBODY there "won" their trip, then payed very high prices for terrible services...



Other problem, as you have noticed they are very new. Only 3 month old. So maybe you should wait for some references.
