Been reading these forums for months and this is the first time I have seen someone say it's a scam, not saying it's not been said before buy I haven't seen it.

Would you care to elaborate on how you know they are selling people's details to the timeshare companies? Are you sure it's them and not someone else selling your details? I'm only curious as I was thinking of getting one for my hols next month.

I agree with emskie, it is not a scam but where is the original poster now to back up his claims

When in tenerife a couple of years ago we went to the sunday market at Los Cris, A bloke had a stall there and offered me a free card,I curiously asked him whats the catch and he said no catch but wanted some personal details like adress,phone number etc, I told him that i would only give him my mobile number and he agreed and gave me a card. We used the card a few times mainly in restaurants and got 10 per cent off our bills. On returning home about a month later was called by someone asking if i used the card etc eventually they asked if i would be interested in "cheap holidays", I politely declined and have not been contacted since.Would say if you can get a free one without giving any personal details then do because you can save a few quid.

So the original poster is vindicated. No such thing as a free lunch!

I'm not sure that the original poster is vindicated. He is saying its a big scam and the meaning of the word scam suggests that the activity is fraudulent. Whilst I have no time for those people who make annoying phone calls whether it be about cheap holidays or anything else, it doesn't mean there is anything fraudulent about the activity of gbg and Hull Gazza has admitted that he saved money using the card.
