Toronto Homeshow 2013 ( Prize / Scam ?)
We went to the Toronto homeshow, where like most people we were signing up for prizes with trustworthy retailers. One of the areas had a booth to win a car + other prizes (cash, tv, laptop). So I started filling out the ballot on an iPad, as soon as I completed, the person asked me to wait as another person will get my winning ticket for the competition. I was standing behind a guy who was ahead of me and talking to a gentlemen who was dealing with us. I overheard, that you have to come for a presentation - free lunch / dinner and you get your price. I had heard about this scam, so I didn't bother and left.
After few days we have been getting many calls to come collect our prize, same thing. Attend a 1.5 hr presentation but a guaranteed prize from one of these:
1. Plasma TV
2. 1000$ furniture
4. Toshiba Laptop
5. Cash Prize (500$)
They guarantee that these prizes has no financial obligation, all they will do is introduce their company and you pull out a ticket which will hold on of these prizes at the end of presentation. Anyone else getting this ? or has been through this?
They said their company name was something like Khashi / Kashi / Cashi..
