    2 Minute draw

    Dont know if anyone has ever seen these at the airport on the way home after a nice sunny holiday, they get all your details with the promise of being put in a free prize draw for another holiday.
    Anyway, my wife just got a call and surprise surprise we have won a holiday!
    They have given a free phone number to sort it all out.....
    only thing is im quite doubtful about it, has anyone else had experience of this company before i waste my time phoning them, im fairly sure its a scam, but has anyone actually ever won anything from them or heard of them????
    Any feedback greatly appreciated

    if its extra weeks or bonus weeks DONT

    You've won a cruise to the mediteranian or a holiday in France. Congratulations. Only thing is you need to buy these 4 flights, at the time and price we state, and pay £XXX upfront for transfers and booking fee, but once you get there, its free, honestly :whistling:

    Its a (data harvesting) scam. Are you sure the number is freephone?

    sounds like timeshare or buy points for weeks etc. give it a miss!

    Sounds like the timeshare scam.

    This says it all:

    yea my old man fell for these abroad and it was a stupid timeshare scan, just liek those week holidays to certain places sold on ebay for £50 there just timeshare scams

    checked them out for you - my advice is stay away form it.

    Or given them a call if its freephone then half way through tell them someones at the door and you'll be right back...........then see how long they hang on for by checking silently..............thatll teach them!
