Did you copy and paste that email OP because there are some pretty basic spelling and grammar mistakes on it ?

Personally I would contact them to confirm possibly through their website.

I assume they didn't ask you to send any personal info like bank details or anything ?

Just had a look at their web-site . They say that these are 'some of their clients':
Coca Cola
Sony Pictures Releasing
Entertainment Film Distributors
Icon Films
MGM – UA
MGM Home Video
Paramount Home Entertainment
United International Pictures
Universal Home Entertainment
Village Roadshow
Warner Brothers
Warner Home Video
20th Century Fox
Lever Fabergè
Max Factor
McDonald's
Unilever
Visa
As a result I would be very suspicious of them.
Rome ??
60 days for confirmation??
Can you check them out with the Office of Fair Trading??

did you enter a competition to win it? if not then its a con

looks dodgy to me
banned#9
I'd like a £ for every time Ive been selected for this type of prize!

There will be all sorts of conditions and you will have to sit through lots of sales pitch. However, sometimes these can prove to be a good deal if you can be bothered. Personally Id chuck it in the bin!
#10
i think you won this

CONGRATUALTIONS

have a great time
#11
I'd be tempted to work out what comp I had entered to win this.

I had a similar prize (but to Barbados:)); the comp organisers told me that I'd won & the holiday firm got in touch, giving much the same in the way of conditions. So it could be true...
#12
It is possible. A friend of mine got a week for two in Spain a few years back. Mind you, he tripped on a wet step and broke his ankle. What goes around .....
#13
if you look at my link you will see he has won

Some of these are genuine and are used to fill the hotels and locations in off periods like Winter. They work on the basis of letting you have the room for free because you will spend on meals etc. However, you have to be extremely careful that it isn't simply a ploy to get you in a closed situation for selling e.g. timeshare as has been mentioned. They are really aimed at young people and older people who have both disposable income and time on their hands - not families who are busy and strapped for cash.

Personally, I would avoid them unless you are the kind of person who is thick skinned enough to ignore the sales pitch and doesn't mind walking around looking for somewhere reasonable and cheap to eat - I notice its room only.

P definite thumbs down
