Just won an all expenses paid trip for 2 in Italy from Ecards, is this legit?

Found 28th Aug 2009
We received an Ecard from a relative and then received an email stating that we've won a £700 all expenses paid holiday including travel and hotel for 2 people at the value of £700.

Do you think this is legit or should we delete the email?

That's a good idea, I think that would be the best thing to do but it's going to have to be later.

After clicking the link, Evholidays request £20 to cover admin, delivery fees and insurance etc

This is the link but it doesn't seem to be a competition, it sounds like it's available to anyone and everyone:

Scam. :thumbsup:

You NEVER have to pay for a genuine prize.

Anything that appears too good to be true, always is.

Tell them the admin fee is an expense and so you do not want to pay it. See how they respond. :-D

That's what I thought and besides, why would this company only offer services for "a selective few" with their "superior coaches"...wouldn't it cost too much not to get the ball rolling constantly throughout seasons to maximise profit?

Yeah exactly, a cheap looking site with a bit of computer editing of still pictures and that's it, £20 x 1000's of people and they're laughing, plus they could take a lot more than the agreed amount once they have your card details. :roll:
