Hey!

Today is my lucky day: I won a trip...It's 3 nights in Orlando, then 2 nights in Daytona with a 2 nights cruise in the Bahamas (all you can eat buffet...). Nice hotels and Disney Pleasure Island Tickets...There are also 4 nights in Cancun...

I have 18 months to book for the 2 things...And it's all for 4 persons. Youppppiiiiii!!!! I thought there was a trap but it seems there's none!!!

Anyone wants to come???? I need at least one good looking man...Heheh!

It will sound wierd, but a flashing add came up while I was reading Dilbert's comics on the internet, saying I had won something...So I clicked the add for fun and it said to call a number within 3 minutes...

So I thought I had nothing to loose and called, wanting to find out what the trap was. So I called and they verified that I did win (versus a rebate) and offered me this deal because I did win. Since I usually drive down to Miami anyways, it's like a free place to stay! Then I bought the cruise for a total of 99$ for 4 people (and it's usually 350$ per person)...

I asked what I had to buy, but they said I only have to take a 2-3 hours tour of their accomodations (I think they sell condos) but have nothing to buy...And then they make sure I have a great time and send them a postcard and tell all my friends about their hotels. I can also sell the thing if I can't go. I'm still a bit suspicious about all this but I can't find something wrong, so I guess it's all true!


I will consider your offer babe!

I was mailed one of those one time. It was similar to yours

* Trip to Orlando, with a free rental car with unlimited mileage for 5 days, return the car in Miami to board a cruise ship for a 4 or 5 day caribbean cruise. I can't remember the exact details but it was a really cool thing. All I had to do was one day between orlando and miami go for a conference and a tour similar to yours. They were fronting the entire $1500 the trip would cost for me and one other person. I looked and looked through all of it, even the small print and couldn't find a single thing that threw off the validiity of it. I was half tempted to take it, but didn't have anyone to go with.

I convinced myself it was a scam anyway, so i wouldn't feel bad. But best of luck with it. Hope you have fun.

i did something like that......they told me 2 just come and visit the grounds, they had a small buffet meal set up......and they gave u choice of gifts ----just 4 taking time out of your day....it lasted 4 hours and bored me 2 so bad all i could think about was doing some heavy drinking.....its gonna be a really full court press sales pitch.......and everyone u talk 2 loves the place, its a steal and all that other stuff......blah- ---------just remember moc....( or anyone )
dont every buy a time share.....most of the time u can never use them when u want 2, and there next impossible 2 sell--------almost everyone takes a huge loss when getting rid of them.

Damn kinda makes me wish I had a little more faith in pop-ups...
I think you got it set; a little suspicion is enough to keep you out of trouble but not so much that you can't have a good time.
Anyway Right on Moc hope they got drinks with that buffet!

sounds like a time-share. i guess they used to be really good deals a few years back, but now they've become popular... so dont let them talk you into it. Theyre gonna pamper you and get you into some infomercial type set with excellent/ charismatic sales people. Dont fall for it (well unless of course you plan on going on vacation in orlando every year for the rest of your life).

enjoy the trip !!!

i once won a trip to florida at a bar, but i was too drunk to realize that I won so I left before taking care of business. They called the next morning to remind me. DOH!!!
