That's fucked. Where was the draw box sitting (at the Expo)? Shouldn't the organizers of the Expo be able to go after them?

And yah, who would fall for the old "you've won a trip, just give us your Visa # to hold it" trick? Guess some conartists are convincing?

I got that call, so did a friend of mine, the incoming number was 1-212-736-6919, got to the part where the dude wanted to confirm my trip, asked me if I had a credit card I said I didn't which I don't as I have zero use for them. He got terse with me and hung up real quickly.....don't fall for it guys and gals.

The booth was located next to the main entrance when ya walked in it was to your immediate left.

Simply just tell them you don't have a credit card like I did, they get pissed real fast.

The guy said to me "you don't sound excited" I told him that I don't trust people telling me I won stuff over the phone. He proceded to tell me that they are a bonded agency and would not be allowed to be at the show if they were not registered in our province......As soon as he told me all I had to pay was a small fee of $299 per ticket I told him I'm not interested and to go fuck himself!
