wondering if this is fraud
got a winning notice from Blue ocean promotions that I won a trip to Vegas.
I hope someone will tell me if this is not fraud. I dont want to just throw it away if it is real

Well did you enter a sweep for a trip to Vegas??

Seems kinda odd, since you live in Vegas

Google it

looks legit to me. It is for room for 3 nights only, no air or food or anything else. FAQ stated there would be a tax to pay of about $20 per night. There will be no timeshare presentations. Did not specify hotel, it can vary, but said it will be one that is highly rated at TripAdvisor. Once activated, you have 24 months to use the voucher.. Looks like you've got a nice little 3-day local getaway some time in the next 2 years!

I checked it out with better business. In Vegas you have to pay for the taxes and room charges.
I am most likely will not except it. I get rooms for about 25.00 and no fees. I thought if I would win
I wouldnt have to pay those fes. the hotel for the winner is the Westgate. Havent decided yet.

I "won" one of these last year.
If it's the same,
the deal is you have to pay the fees upfront when you accept the voucher, no matter when
you intend to use it.
I declined, because I didn't want to tie up the $$$ when I was not sure
when we would go.
Wonder if it the same "terms and conditions" on this one.

thanks for the information. it works the same way. I am also going to decline. I could get rooms here and not pay those charges and put up money in advance
