Friday, April 17, 2009 is a SCAM!!

Remember how I told you that I won a free trip from a radio station when Fred and I were in Miami? Well, it's a scam.

I initally called my contact (Keith O'Neil) at and he told me to look online and call him back and let him know which rental property we were interested in staying in on our vacation.

Fred and I talked about it and we decided that we wanted to bring Knox. We specifically searched properties that allowed pets. We found a nice two bedroom condo that was pet friendly.

I called him last week to schedule our vacation and I had to call and call and call. I spoke with him on Wednesday and he asked me to send an e-mail with all of my information and location request. I did so and earlier today, I called. I still had not received a call back; so, I called again.

This time he answered and told me that this property was not guaranteed for May 16-23 (when we wanted to go). So, I asked, what does that mean? He said they only guaranteed a beachfront condo. And proceeded to tell me that a May 16 stay was too early to book. I thought people booked vacations months in advance. Am I right?

Needless to say, the conversation got heated and he hung up on me. I've called FM100 to notify them and to see if any other winners had encountered the same problems. I haven't heard back, but as far as I am concerned, is a SCAM!!!!
