If you have the name of the company making this offer to you, search the BBB database at www.bbb.org. If you find nothing there, do a general Google or Yahoo search and if you still can't find anything, you should be extremely cautious.

Melissa,

I Googled the number and found several links associating the number with a cruise offer phone scam. According to what I found, everyone "wins" and they ask for $59 in port fees at double occupancy = $118.00. The problem is they use high pressure sales practices to get your credit card info and once it's provided, they put a pending charge on the credit card and refuse to cancel, remove or credit.

Offers like this are typically a scam and the rule of thumb says, if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is. Rick C. is right, be extremely cautious.

Thank you.
