Found 7th Feb 2008
Hi, I have received a letter from clubseasons.co.uk informing me I have won £3750 club membership (see below). To claim I need to pay annual management fee for holiday. Has anyone had any experience of them? Is this just timeshare stuff? Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.

Cheers for the link, did think it was too good to be true. Good to know you can get sound advice here. Thanks.
Sorry lankybogger, still better you found out sooner rather than later. :-(

Impressive!! How many seconds did it take you to sort that out?:thumbsup:
I had the same which I ignored but yesterday I had another letter offering 50% off the initial management fee as another "come on." Binned it.
I had a similar thing through the post - don't think it was ClubSeason, though, but basically the same setup (phone within 7 days etc etc). Filed under 'spam';-)
I too received this wonderful prize!!!!
Sadly, people are drawn into these scams, so it is good to have websites like this that can warn others.
I won the same thing through myoffers site sept 06. I decided to do it only because my Mum was already a Clowance week owner before they got taken over by Seasons, and I had been there. (its lovely - def the best site in this country) I did it for one year and went to 2 sites, the Lake District on a midweek break - really good, then the Wales one for a week in the summer hols 07 - ok, but clearly a lot older than the other sites. I gave membership up this month as it is in off peak only after the first year and [I] cant take the kids out of school. I thought it was worthwhile and would have carried it on if could have booked any time of year.
They do meet with you and try hard sell but I never fall for that.
My sister also went on myoffers to win one and did but gave hers up before me as she was very diappointed with Wales site (think my standards are lower!!!)
Hope this helps
