So I stop in a mall in the DFW area not to long ago and SO andI I filled out the little paper for the give away that they had next to a car, they called me today to tell me I'm a finalist and am guaranteed to win with the grand prize, a car there s 3 different options for the car, a 1500 shipping spree or and island getaway, 3 days 4 nights. Awesome right? But I have to drive out to silver leaf resort in flint TX about 2.5 hours away from me to basically scratch off a scratach off and see which give away I won, and by going and attending some 90 minute seminar I'll also win 1 of 3 getaways.....



Has anyone heard of this place or won something from a mall give away thing?
Is this legit or am I going to be wasting our time?



They don't ask for SS #'s or any kind of payment out anything like that and I diD enter the drawing....




What do you think ladies?

It's a scam. They want to make you go through a timeshare thing or something.

I worked at a resort like that this summer. You're not guaranteed. And seriously it's been 4 years and nobody has magically won the truck yet.



ETA: At our resort you had to sit through their little thing about becoming a member of Coast to Coast or Resorts of Distinction. Not a timeshare but similar.

Sounds like you have to go sit through a timeshare meeting lol.



My brother in law entered one when he was 11 and won but since he was 11 he couldn't get anything from it.

Sometimes if you win the vehicle you still have to pay tax title and license fees. They get you there. :(
