    Well done! I was instantly suspicious when i received an email saying i had won a long weekend in Cyprus until i checked online to see it actually existed and the company address was right!

    Could always check the name of the person who phoned and the number and see if they work at one of the companies involved if you are thinking scam. Saying that, it you didn't give out much in the way of info other than name/address etc then it should be fine anyway!

    Yup, know exactly what you mean. I won 2 tickets and backstage passes to see McFly last year, not really a fan of theirs but it was a really good once in a lifetime experience getting to go back stage and stuff, and I took my cousin who is a HUGE McFly fan. Until I actually got the tickets I didnt quite believe it though
