I just got a phone call from someone saying I had won a free 4 or 5 day cruise on Royal Caribbean, Carnival, or Norwegian. They said all I had to pay was taxes today, and asked if I was interested. I said no, that I didn't trust calls like this and hung up. I cannot imagine it was legit. Just wondering if anyone else has gotten a call like this. I didn't catch the name they first gave me.
If you didn't enter a contest, you can't "win". A legit contest will send you a registered letter to inform you of your win in most cases. At best it was a timeshare offer, at worst it was someone trying to get your credit card info. You did the right thing!

Hey, I can go on that free cruise and fly to get there with the voucher I just got for two FREE roundtrip airline tickets to anywhere in the US. However, I was warned if I didn't redeem them in the next ten days, they would AWARD them to someone else.
Must be from the same company that keeps sending me those post cards that end up in our recycling bin.
