I did not think i would be so easily caught but on walking down the main Bangla Street, 2 french boys approached us with a free scratch card and then preceeded to do cartwheels down the street telling us we have won a free cruise, laptop or video camera.
Their seeming honesty affected us, so we agreed to go to a 90 minute presentation so we could collect our prize. That was 11.15 in the morning, we staggered out at 15.00 worn out and battered by a prolonged sales presentation from the 'Absolute' company when the final price only became apparent in the last 5 minutes.
I have no doubt that everyone invovled was on the right side of legal, but we certainly feel misled and our day was put to loss.
And the Laptop, cruise or Video Camera? Not a bit of it! A feww weeks accommodation, again so bound up with strings that i doubt it could be used.
So beware and believe me when i say they are VERY convincing.
