Hi how did you pay these people. I am afraid without exception if you were cold called by someone claiming they could get your money back it is likely to be a scam. You have to think how they got your details or knew that you had participated in Holiday Dreams? If you paid by credit card or visa debit you should contact the to try and recover your money.

Have a look at the TATOC website for more info on this sort of thing
