Phone Scam


I just got a call from someone at the number (760)705-8888. (In case you don’t know, that’s the number that comes up on your phone if called by someone using a gmail phone number.) I could barely understand them and they were saying that I won a free prize for entering a contest around the holidays. It was suspect, but I figured I would see why they were REALLY calling me. I’m smart enough not to give them any information, so I played along for a minute to figure out the truth.

They said I won either $5,000, a big screen tv, or a mystery prize. After grilling the person on the other line, it ends up they were from Global Discovery Vacations trying to scam me into buying something from there. They said I had to visit the closest Global Discovery Vacations location with my husband to "claim my prize." They also told me I wasn't allowed to come alone. If that doesn’t throw up a red flag, I don’t know what does.

I told them they were a scam and the caller got mad at me. I hung up. As someone who has worked in sales for many years, I know that any company who uses this kind of a sales tactic isn't credible and should be avoided at all costs. Do not give any personal information or credit card numbers to these people. BE CAREFUL!

It is sort of misleading at first, as we had the impression that we won a cruise, however, after listening to their spiel, it is ligit, and the prices for a condo are ridiculously cheap. After our "yearly" travel stars are used up, we also benefit with last minute travel deals. We are going to the Wisconsin Dells next month for $129 for the WHOLE week. No other hidden charges. That is approx $18 a night. So all in all for this calendar year, we were able to go to Destin FL in January (one star plus $159 out of pocket), Wisoncin Dells ("Expressway" Deal $129 for the whole week), and in November we will travel to Cabo with family who also receive our deal (Two Stars plus $159)...Now who can beat that??!! I totally understand being leary of scams, though, I can relate, but this is the real deal :O))

THE MARKETING COMPANIES CAN BE TRICKY, BUT THE LAW REQUIRES THEM TO RECORD THOSE CALLS. hOLD THEM TO THE PROMISES THEY GIVE YOU AND DON'T BE AFRAID TO ATTEND THEIR SPONSERS PRESENTATION. I WENT AND WAS ABLE TO SELL MY DREADED TIMESHARE AND NOW OWN A GREAT FAMILY VACATION PLAN THAT ALLOWS US TO TRAVEL THE WORLD, TAKE CRUISES AND USE DISCOUNT TRAVEL AGENCY. I HAVEN'T TRIED THE BUYING SERVICE YET, BUT LOOK FORWARD TO THOSE DISCOUNTS. LET GO OF THE MARKETING COMPANY AND VISIT THIS GREAT TRAVEL CLUB.
