I am very upset. Just got a phone call saying i won a competition for a holiday for 4 people in europe 7 nights flights and accomadition paid for. They put me throught to someone to take all m details and then they said because i lived in Co.Londonderry Northern Ireland it was no good because the tickets had to be pick up in london or scotland and that i slipped throught the net.

I'm presuming the OP knows this is a scam and is being sarcastic.

If I am wrong, Mods, please delete my account.

Probably a timeshare thingy - you have to go to one of their "presentations" to get the tickets......

Thats exactly what it is - and I reckon that when they were talking to you on the phone they discovered something like perhaps you dont own your own home as you wouldnt be able to afford a timeshare (in their eyes)

I have a friend who done this job for extra cash few years back and the horror stories. People think they have won a holiday - go along to this never ending presentation which is hard sell - then you get your free holiday................but you need to chose three dates and three locations.........and they never materialise.
