    Complimentary 8 Day Cruise? Anyone else get this postcard?

    I got a postcard today from Carnival. At least I think itís real. It does have the real CCL logo on it ( or at least it does look like it ). Iím wondering if anyone else got anything similar? This is what the card reads.

    Dear My Name

    In celebration of our Grand Opening in your area,
    You have been selected to receive a Complimentary 8 Day/7 Night Cruise for 2 with and outside cabin, leaving from any major port in the U.S., including New York City. Call within 48 hours. You will also receive as a bonus. 2 Roundtrip Airfares Leaving from or Going to Any Major Airport in the Continental U.S.

    We have been trying to contact you (This is not a timeshare or Land Sale Offer).


    And then on the left side of the postcard is a Confirmation #, my name, Port of call #1 New York City, port of call #2 Freeport, Bahamas, port of call #3 St. Thomas.than

    The postcard does not say what the grand opening is. So what do you think.

    Thanks Kevin

    I'd make sure you had someone watching your house while you were gone! Sounds way too good to be true.

    I'm sure it is a scam, but get on Carnival's website, look up their phone # and give them a call. Do not call the phone # on the card, or enter any type of www. that they give you on the card.

    It is unbelievable how many scams are out there, from work at home to wining the lottery. If is to good to be true, it is not true

    If you have a bird, Kevin, you can use that to help line the bottom of the cage. Or if you're paper-training your sweetheart of a puppy, add that to the paper collection.

    Corky gave you an excellent suggestion.

    I would wait 2 weeks and call, bet the deal is still good............

    Quite a while back I irritated one of those Discovery Time Share marketers so bad that she actually hung up on me, that's hard to do

    Forget the rain, the snow, the cold and everything else that goes along with winter.
    Think about fun, sun, the warm Caribbean waters.
