    Holiday Scam?

    Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong section! We've just 'won' a free 7 day self catering holiday for upto 6 people. All we have to do is attend a venue in Leeds, pay £29.50 per person 'admin costs'.

    OK the scam alert red flashing light bulb is going off. The word TIMESHARE springs instantly to mind. So what's the chances of actually getting this holiday? Should we go to Leeds or not bother?

    Errr.... when someone says you have won a competition I say 'how, since I didnt apply for any competitions?'

    Next response is 'I am a bit busy now, give me your number and I will call you back'

    And finally, sure I will attend but I require a personal attendance fee of £50.

    As for Personal Makeover Photos, I dont charge for attendance only for the shots people want.

    Beware!

    I could go for youI require a £50 attendance fee though:p

    Did they say where you had to attend??

    This is a timeshare scam

    scam...................

    Definitely a timeshare scam
