Here's the M.O.:
You receive a phone call, presumably in response to a sweepstakes entry, offering an 8 days / 7 nights vacation in Florida for four for only $398.
This includes 4 nights in Orlando at the Ramada Fountain Park at the east entrance of Disneyworld and 3 nights in New Smyrna Beach at a 3-star hotel,
and another 2 nights in Key West at Ramada.
Additionally, you'll get to go on two "fun" cruises totaling 5 hours.
Total value of this package is about $2,000, but in order to promote tourism in Florida, they are making this package available to just 250 people for this low price.
Although we may be invited to attend a timeshare presentation, attendance is not required.
Here's an experience reported on 1/3/2004:
I got a call this afternoon from the eTour and Travel division. $298 for 4days and 3 nights in Orlando and 3 days and 2 nights in Key West and a rental car for the week. No mention of any timeshare presentation.
The pressure to decide within 7 days was the clue and a turn-off. Also, when I asked to have a package or brochure sent, the excuse was "the deals change too much from one week to the next on prices and lodging".
Here's a new experience reported 3/1/2004
Washington, DC Just today received a call from these folks (as e Tour and Travel, 1-800-431-8434) offering the $2,000 package for only $200 per person for up to four people. 4/days nights in Orlando, 4 days/nights in Daytona Beach, and an extra bonus of 3 days/nights in Key West. Problem was when I asked for information to be sent me in the mail prior to making up my mind in one weeks time (oh, and they wanted my credit card information, too), I was asked to "hold on." Onbody ever came back on so I broke the connection. Wish I knew what "offer" I'd signed up for and where! Mike Walker
