    I have apparantly won a 7 day 6 night holiday to turkey...sounds good but am asking if anyone has heard of this company and is it genuine, i often enter competitons but I am now finding it very difficult to sort out the spam from the prizes. This is what I have apparently won. I would appreciate any feedback from anyone who has been involved with this company
    I am entitled to .Airfare & 5-star Hotel Accommodations PAID-IN-FULL!Congratulations! You can now claim this exciting Turkey holiday for you and a guest where you don't pay for Flights and 5star Hotel accommodation!
