Why do I get phone calls telling me i have won a holiday?
How did these people get my details?
When you get that phone call telling you that you have won a holiday, it is for a promotional holiday and not something that you have won at all. You will only need to pay a small admin fee and you will receive a luxury holiday for free. The admin fee is usually just £99 per couple or £149 for a family. During this holiday you will have to attend a holiday ownership presentation during one morning or afternoon of your holiday.
The companies that obtain your details have usually purchased them from other companies. You may have been members of a club or done some kind of promotion while on holiday or online, and given your permission for your information to be passed on without even knowing.
Don´t trust anyone who has cold called you. Cold calling is illegal for a reason. Ask where they got you details from and if you do not remember giving it to them then hang up the phone. There are legal companies offering the same cheap holiday at the same prices, you just need to find them.
