I was first contacted by phone saying I was a winner of one of five possible prizes. all I had to do to qualify was make a small advertising order. After the order was processed I would receive my award plus my order. After some discussion I turned it down. Two days later another salesman called and said I was going to miss out on a lot of money if I didn't get this guaranteed prize. I made a small order and found out later I could have gotten almost five times the Items ordered from a reputable ad company.
The prize I got was a Florida Bahama cruise that had a $148.00 registration fee and the only thing paid for was the cruise & hotel. Food, taxes, fees, transportation, gratuities, and port attendants, were all the responsibility of ME. There were a number of block out dates and could not be any closer than 7 days before th blackout dates.
I was also told that I could choose to accept a cash award instead. Right!
The advertising gimmicks I bought were done well but not for almost % times the price I can get the for from any other reputable company.
