I recently visited Toronto's Ultimate Travel Show, and filled out a few ballots to win trips and such. Tonight I got a phone call from Imperial Majesty saying that my ballot from the travel show was specially selected out of thousands to receive this vacation that includes a trip to Orlando FL at the Ramada 1000, including an Alamo car rental or passes to theme parks, a cruise to the Bahamas, a Ft. Lauderdale stay, plus two more trips to Mexico and Las Vegas all for just $598 - too good to be true? From what I've read here and other internet searches, it is.
Firstly, I never filled out a ballot for Imperial Majesty - they most likely bought off names and phone numbers off of some other company's ballots that I did fill out. Secondly, the sales lady told me that they are not allowed to call back, and cannot receive incoming calls - I can't think about it and call them back apparently. Thirdly, they wanted the credit card number right there and then, before I see anything on paper.
Thankfully (thanks to the fact the my boyfriend was right there and he'd heard of this ripoff attempt before), I did not purchase the package. There may or may not have been a real trip, but none of the above seems to me like what a respectable corporation would do, nor what a legit transaction should be - it's all very, very fishy.
Note that I am not blaming or complaining about the aforementioned travel show - they are not likely to be involved in any way.
Also, I read a few reviews commenting that this deal is real, and the vacation is great, but how could it be when so many more others are unhappy, and the practices of the company induce so much suspicion? Please be weary!
