Funny fine print on ad....
« on: May 03, 2016, 02:56:50 PM »
An ad at the top of an Ehell forum page says "You have 1 Unread Message!" with an icon of an envelope.  So just for the heck of it I clicked on it.  Apparently I was the winner of something "in <large city near my city>" and to click or call to claim my prize.  So I scrolled down to the bottom to read the fine print and try to figure out the scam.  It seems to be for a cruise, with the intention to sell you a timeshare.  But the funny part is in the fine print it's written (copy/pasted):

Cruise vacations will be delivered via e-mail on or before 12/31/2015

Hm hmm.   ::)

That would be cool eh. I'd want to go somewhere way more interesting than just last year though.
