Gunner22aa Posted November 6, 2013 #1 Share Posted November 6, 2013 Got a call last night about having won yet another free cruise. Normally I hang up right away but out of boredom I decided to listen and am glad I did. This offer was totally different. I was told that for a $100 donation to a major charity which they refused to divulge I would be entered into a lottery with a guaranteed prize of a 3, 5, 7 or 10 day cruise from one of several major cruise lines which when questioned they again refused to divulge. I asked when and where I would be departing from and of course they couldn't tell me that either as it would depend on the cruise that I won. I asked for the name of the company that the caller represented. When questioned as to why that was important I told them it was so I could report it to the Canadian authorities as we have registered for the no call list for telemarketing here and companies that don't abide by the list face large financial and potentially criminal penalities. You will never guess how fast I got a dial tone on the other end of the phone. A new twist on a very old scam. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
