I got a call today from a woman saying that my name was pulled out of their drawing and that I won a pampering package which includes a hand and lip treatment and a mini-facial as well as a gift certificate to use toward any purchases. I told her I didn’t remember putting my name in and she kinda laughed it off. I know that I do tend to put my names in drawings, but I have never been to this salon. It’s an hour away from me where I went to college and I did enter a contest at a restaurant but I didn’t think it was for that…maybe it was?? I asked her if I would have to pay anything and she said no. I think she sounded surprised I wasn’t more happy. Anyways, what would you girls do? I made a tenative appt. for next week…should I just go? Have any of you received a call like this and it been fake? I know I have for trips and stuff but not spa packages. The funny this is I just won a spa package from a bridal trunk show I went to so I guess it’s just odd my name would get picked again. Oh, sorry this is sooo long. Ok thanks!
p.s. she did say she would email me directions and info. later…she had my cell and email address.

As long as you don’t give her any money or credit card/banking info you should be fine! Might as well check it out. Just be sure to gaurd your personal info!!

@west.coast.blonde:Yeah, she didn’t ask for any credit card info or anything. I’m thinking it might have been that restaurant, I know I put my email and my phone number down, I just didn’t think it was for that, I guess I assumed a gift cert. for a restaurant.

I agree with westcoastblonde. I would just look up the spa to see if they are reputable. I’d also read through reviews on yelp or other places. If they check out, I just would not provide any information at all – banking, credit card, etc. It could be a great raffle prize – but there are so many scams out there that I’m always distrustful. I get those free vegas trips all the time – but it usually ends up being – just give us your credit card and sit through a long time share discussion. I always pass. 🙂 Hopefully it works out and it is honest 🙂

I think this is common ..is it the Mary Kay spa package thing?? they will just try to convince you to buy their products…
I have also heard it isnt too much of a spa day more of a trying their products
