Beware They are back

Remember a year or so back in time there was this company call LGM that sells time sharing holiday plan and receive alot of complaint for their hard sell tatics and then refuse to refund those who wants to get out of it.

Later they came out with a scheme to buy back your share but at a great discount and you also have to pay more administrative fees.

Now they are back with a different Company NAME and guess what it has the same company address as before. A friend of mine got a phone call from this company tell her she won a lucky draw price and need her to go together with another person to claim the price, also the lucky draw only applies to those age below 65. (OMG! what kind of lucky draw prices is it not for 65 years old person????? and also why need two person to claim it.... must be very big??)

The next thing was to ask for your EMAIL so that details can be send to you ...
Below is a reproduction of that email .... in RED
Names of victim mask out to protect the innocent.
