One morning in June this year whilst on duty I received a n unsolicited call on my mobile from Tracy *smiling* Reed saying Dont put the phone down you have won a fantastic prize. I asked her how she got my number but she continued on about the free holiday I had won for myself and up to 4 friends/family. I immediately asked her if they were paying for the call or whether after the call Id find I had. She described *my prize* as 5days- 4nights at the Calypso Cay hotel in Orlando Florida which she added was a 5 star hotel! the prize also included 2 unlimited hopper passes to Universal studios full free use of the amenities including V.I.P. facials private beach with miles of white sand. also included was a ocean cruise on a luxury ship 3days 2 nights visiting Daytona beach all services included. also included a visit to Fort Lauderdale 3days and 2 nights where we could water ski all hotel transfers phone calls from room free and taxis included .The holiday was extendable for up to 18 months or transferable if I suddenly could not go! She finally said all this for only £249 per person! I said wait a minute how can I win a holiday that I have to pay for? She said I m offering you a holiday including the 3rd and fourth person all in for £498. I said I felt she had a problem and if a supervisor was available she should put him/her on as I was puzzeled.I then spoke to someone called Jennifer who ran promotions I said you phone me out of the blue showering me with prizes and fabulous offers when I don't have a passport, I am a health service worker ie don't get proplonged holidays or sufficient pay to go away and meet the bills at home. She said oh I see well you can have the cash alternative of £498 I was taken aback she asked for my address and assured me my cheque was in the post. I have never heard from them again. If it sounds too good to be true, it is!

We were also given the wrong email address but luckily I found this one with all the complaints on it. I have phone the police and trading standers and hopfully they will follow this up...
