It'll be timeshare or similar.

My father won an unexpected holiday through his wine club and everything was sent through the post and all he had to do choose and book - no expense or trouble on his part - and he had a fab time.

As soon as it does become a faff or money is involved, steer well clear.

If you say "Lovely-send me the tickets, but I am not going to a presentation" they put the phone down-it happens every time!!

scam , sorry . Timeshare, if probably under any other name . Your "free" holiday comes with all sorts of restrictions and strings attached.

Before I registered with the Telephone preference service I used to regularly get phone calls telling me I had "won" a holiday. Usually as a result of being entered in a prize draw after answering a survey/questionaire. (which I know I haven't because I make a point of never completing surveys and questionaires!!!)I always used AbbeyA's response and I never recieved one of these holidays I have won.

I also want to know how come I am so successful at winning prize draws I haven't even entered yet I have never even won as much as a tenner on the lottery grin
