Advice needed! Has anyone heard of/used SEASONSHOLIDAYS.COM?

Hi all, I got a letter today to say I had won a prize worth £3750. It was recored delivery. It states that I won a prize draw that I entered (I don't remember, I enter them now and then but forget all about it!) I had to authenticate my 'win' by ringing a freephone number. I did this and my 'prize' is.............. a free weeks accommodation at one of their resorts and discounted rates in the UK resorts. Also I am invited to a Major prize-winner's day in the Seasons Holidays box at Sandown Park Racecourse to watch the Seasons Holidays Tingle Creek Steeplechase as guests with VIP parking and a champagne brunch alongside Derek Thompson (C4 racing).

What a good prize, until they tell me I have to pay for membership!

Anyone have any experience please?!

I'm cynical to begin with, but i've never won a "prize" that i've had to pay for. Check the wording of the letter if it reads something like......"you've been chosen to recieve,etc" then it is a scam, but totally legal. It can only tell you you've won if that's actually the case.

Bin It.! I received a letter just the same and I know I never entered the draw. Its a con and nothing else! Believe me.

I never trust things like this! If you've won something, you've won it, so no need to pay a penny for anything. If you won the lottery, you wouldn't then have to pay (afterwards) to claim your prize...........

Thank you all, exactly what I thought! Choc, I have just been on their website, it is so restricted, would rather choose my own destination!

All repped for your feedback. X.

Just got one of these too. I would expect that internet comps would let you know first of all by email.
or in my lucky experience phone.

Bstrds! is all I can say. Glad I double checked here before going any further . Seems that according to further Google searches, some internet competitions are just there to grab your details for this very purpose.
