I seem to get stuff like that on a regular basis. I can't get it into the trash can fast enough.

Now if I could only get more retirement planning seminar invitations along with a free lunch @ Outback steak house ...

Discovery Cruise Line is often used in these type of promotions. Beware, they will be ceasing operation on September 6th.

Exclamation "Free" Royal Caribbean 8 day/7 night cruise postcard scam
I'm very glad I came across this post; I received a similar postcard today - except it was affiliated through Royal Caribbean. No information was listed on the card as to the company that sent the solicitation, which is a red flag right off the bat. I tried putting the phone number (888) 248-8550 in a search, and came up with nothing. It took a bit of tracking to find this post noting the scam. I'm hoping that by posting the phone number, someone else may find this information more easily, and not take any chances on this too good to be true 'deal.'

My card is similar. It refers to Norwegian Cruise Line for a complimentary 7 day/6 night cruise, along with my chance to win two airline tickets. This phone number is 1-877-423-8967. BEWARE!!!
