Just got one of those "Congratulations, you have won a trip to Florida, please call me back before 8 pm...." blah blah blah
Only to find out you have to attend some seminar on time shares. I may even consider getting the free trip, but I have absolutely NO intention of buying a time share, and my time is that valuable to me, if I am going to be on a vacation, I am going to do it on my itinerary, which may include a nap at the time of the seminar! LOL! Or a dip in the pool, or whatever...
So, just wondering, any one else get these kinds of calls? I have to be careful to keep hubby from hearing the messages, he falls for that stuff. When we got married he ordered a new TV with the $200 off coupon enclosed in some flyer if he bought magazines, he could use this coupon. I said you did WHAT???!!! Showed himn our local Circuit City store circular with same TV for exactly what he apid for it, after the $200 off coupon. He got the picture, and now permits me the destrot all similar mailings before he sees them!
Of course I only knew that before him b/c I learned it the hard way!
So have you ever been conned? What is the worst con/scam/gimmick you have ever heard of, or been victim to??
