Grand Solmar Timeshare is aware that every day, millions of people receive an email telling them they have won a free trip. The only problem is that the people who receive these emails never entered a contest to try to win this trip. Grand Solmar Timeshare reveals that there may be a legitimate reason for receiving this type of email. It could be an offer from a timeshare resort. These emails are a way for a resort to attract people and to try to get them to sit through a sales presentation.
The scam prevention team warns consumers that not all of these free trip offers are what they seem. They could be a disguise to take advantage of anyone that responds to them. There are several ways that this can happen.
- The email will contain a link. If the reader of the email clicks on the link, they can download a virus on their computer that will allow someone to steel their private information.
- The email will have recipient call a representative. That representative will tell the person that they need to pay taxes or some other fees before they can get their contest winnings.
- The email will direct a person to a form that they have to provide private information on. This private information will be used to steal the individual’s identity.
It is not always easy to tell the difference between a real offer and an offer that is going to create problems. Grand Solmar Timeshare Scam Prevention Team reports that the best thing you can do is to investigate carefully whether the company offering the deal is real. The Internet is a great resource for people to do this and to stay safe.
