We've all received the emails about winning the lottery, you know the one you never entered. Or helping out some poor African Minister get a few million out of the country. I've played with some of those guys a bit, scam baiting they call it. Fun for a while.
I am very leery of free prizes, or gifts.
So it was after much thinking and checking around that I gave in and accepted an offer. My wife received an offer in the mail from a real estate "golf resort". In return for a 2 hour tour, and meeting certain qualifications, she would be given a set of golf clubs. Not only that, but by calling and setting it up in the next 3 weeks, she would receive 2 sets, one men's and one ladies.
Now honestly, these are not PGA Tour clubs. They are however, a better set than the one I have currently. And we get 2 sets.
I called and set up the appointment. I was told that after the tour, they will give us a gift card, and we order the clubs on line. I was assured, repeatedly, that there would be no out of pocket cost to me. No tax, no handling, no shipping, nothing.
My question to the readers; Anybody else out there done this? How did it work out?
