Did anyone else receive this email -- I got this through TUG.



Time-shares are the abomination of all vacation options. Limited locations, times blocked out, ridiculous fees for high seasons, grave limitations on usage, expiration dates, maintenance fees, if not used lost, and what’s with all the POINTS? … and the list just goes on and on and on.

If you truly enjoy vacationing but your just sick and tired of being ripped off I have something very refreshing to show you.

You earn referral income, not the sales representative who high-pressured you into the time-share in the first place.

One quick example is a 5 stars, peak season, fully equipped condo style accommodations i.e pool, spa, fitness center, concierge services, HIGH END in Las Vegas. Our cost for a one week stay is $550.00. Orbitz $1,412.20, Expedia $1,391,43, Travelocity $1,245.63, hotels.com $1,391.43 (quotes on the same location), all verifiable.

You can stay in thousands of locations throughout the world, for usually a 60% discount. No limitation on locations, times, no blocked dates, no outrageous high season rates, no maintenance fees. It’s FABULOUS!

I have one request. Just go to this web site, 20 second video, fill out the form and ONLY ONE PERSON, me, will be in touch. Absolutely no pressure I promise, just good conversation.

Respectfully,

Steve Lovelace

Before you call me, just listen to a 2-minute presentation. If it peaks your interest then leave a message and I’ll call you back at your convenience. NO OBLIGATIONS!

This is a lifetime membership, 100 years, and transferable to your estate.

Sincerely,

Steve Lovelace

what do you mean you "got that through tug"

I can assure you that TUG did not send you that email.

Ive banned the user, Global Resorts is not welcome on TUG due to their repeated rules violations and rude attitude towards TUG and its administrators.

This spammer sent a this via the bbs' private message facilities to a total of 4 BBS users, 2 of whom have mentioned it here.

I've inserted a note into the PM for the other two to let them know the sender has been banned from the bbs.

Umm, I received the unsolicited PM from this guy too; and I haven't seen a note from Doug or Brian telling me the status of the sender.

Perhaps this was more widespread than you think?

-Bob

Edited to add -- oops. I now see the note from "BBS Admin" at the top of the PM. Sorry Doug.
