I went to a local Bridal Expo this weekend and of course entered in a few drawings. Well, this company keeps calling me (NON STOP) saying they are a cutlery company as part of Bella Bridal and they will be at the local Holiday Inn and I need to come for an hour with my FI to claim my package (a vacation). I googles the phone number they keep calling me from and all the reviews say its a scam. The guy I just talked to said the only way I can claim my package would be if my FI were there with me, (He works weekends)…so I said I couldnt go and they said they would call me in a month when they return to the area. Have any of you experienced this?

I have had this happen with a different company after going to a bridal expo. Basically they called and said I won free china, Great! But in order to redeem my prize my FI and I had to go to an event where they would show us how to prepare a meal. BUT it was in a different town and my FI would not be able to go with me. They told me the same, we both had to be there. They called and called and called and after weeks of them pestering me they finally got the message that I didnt want my ‘Free’ china.
From what I know, they want you to come to this get together so they can try and sell you stuff. And there is usually lots of fine print for the ‘Free’ Stuff they give you.

If you Googled it and it came up as a scam, then it’s most likely a scam.

That sucks… Set up a new gmail account and google voice # hand that out at expos, and when you’re filling out info for wedding stuffs. All the spam calls and emails will go there and you won’t be bothered! I hate giving out my phone number… Works like a charm for me!

@MissEMich: It’s actually not a scam. I just went to the meeting not too long ago. You win a free vacation for 3 nights and 4 days, all you have to do is listen to them talk about their pots and pans and cutlery (which is really nice btw) and you don’t have to buy anything. In fact, they say that repeatedly at the meeting, and they did on the phone with me as well. They are a very nice company that just happens to sell extremely expensive kitchenware. That’s how they can afford to give away these vacations.
