Key word here is SCUM... You can go and talk to them. I did this a long time ago. It is HIGH pressure sales. Leave your wallet in the car. Listen to their BullSh!t, tell them you have to go get your wallet with your CC in it, and Leave if you dont have a trip in your hand. SCUM is an understatement.

Likewise, got the same card in the mail followed by a phone call tonight. She said I didn't need to spend a dime and could leave my wallet at home. All I needed is a drivers license to verify my identity.

Basically they use high-pressure sales techniques to sell you time shares. Even though it's legal (barely), it's not exactly what you would call good business practices. Research what the chances are of winning those high dollar items are and you'll probably find it's about the same chance as getting hit by lightening. And I doubt very seriously that anyone actually wins the big ticket items. If they do, they're probably "plants" that they hire, there's really no way of finding out that I know of.
It's pretty much a waste of your time....

This is such a scam... The sad thing is I fell for it and bought the timeshare years ago and still stuck paying it. I work a lot so never use it, yet still paying on it. I never got the trip but did get the 40 gift card. I still owe like 3,000 willing to sell it. I have 7 resorts which is good but I work a lot. So can't make time for it. So if you don't have to work a lot it would be worth it but in my case I'm a single mother with a full time job and now looking for a pt also. If u are interested in buying this please contact me @ [email protected]

Hey, it's not a scam.. I used to work for the company. You must go to the 90 minute meeting and yes they would like for you to buy a timeshare. But just say NO, over and over. Never seen anyone win a car but the trips are real. Pay your taxes and you're good to go...

Actually, parking at the Galveston port is $45.00 for the entire cruise time, the 100.00 deposit is the gratuity fees ( which you can decline and get back ) Considering the cruise is upwards of 700.00, I will glady pay the port fees and charges. I just took this cruise 3 weeks ago, Well worth it :)

please do onot fall for this scam . i went yesterday so excited thinking i was going to win something big. but insted it was sales men trying to make me buy time share for vacations . which is ridiculous. 9,000! get out of here! at the end they give you a cruise to the bahamas . but u have to be over 21 and have to depposit 100. and an additional fee of 150 to park your car on the dock. so if your intrested on going to a 250 cruise for two go ahead and go. but if you dont got the money. dont even think about it ! heads up!

The trips are real. My best friends and i do this often. The only thing is going to the darn presentation. Know how to say no and stick to it, they can't MAKE you buy anything. But they do HAVE to give you what was promised.

I got my letter today. Everything I read is pretty much what I expected to read; I got the same thing when I lived in New Orleans. The part I questioned was being GUARANTEED a cash prize as an option for going through the presentation. So I asked three times if a cash prize was guaranteed and they say yes all three times. I couldn't help but notice that it was $49K in the letter then it was a $500 VISA gift card on the phone. I don't know if I want the vacay package that badly.

My son got one of these letter this week, he called and they asked for his parents.. So I got on phone and they changed names to myself and my wife. we have the appointment tomorrow. I'm going just o get out of the house and invert the game on them. Since its what you guys say it is,, the best way to stop them is to go there and after the presentation Im going to show them these postings to show if its true or not. The thing is on time shares, you have to have money to go to these resorts, airfare, time off work, fuel, travel, airfare if needed..
