Beachcombers Vacation Travel Informative - Consumer Beware
DALLAS, TEXAS -- I give the following report to help other consumers beware of this company. Any negative statements about them they claim is disgruntled ex-employees. I am not an ex-employee. I am a hard working single woman who listened, said no, and felt the need to say yes to get out of there. It is not a time share but it is a costly vacation swindle that won’t save you money. This is a well practiced technique against those who really don’t have the money to spend. Getting out after the you hear their pitch is expensive so just say NO!!!!!
I was contacted by a marketing company with the promise that if I arrived by a certain time I would receive either a two round-trip airfares or a 7 day car rental or $200 gas voucher. I followed the directions, went to the very orchestrated pitch, and when I said “NO” the real pitch started. The cost was lowered, they change up the people making the pitch at you, and the promises keep coming. I kept saying NO but the pitch kept coming. No was not an answer they were willing to take.
Within an hour of leaving their location I called back to cancel. I offered to come back to return the materials but they refused to accept the materials back. They gave me instructions for a letter of cancellation and the address to send the materials back to. This was not a Dallas location. That night I called my credit card company and they in spite of my description honored the charge.
I followed the cancellation instructions and met their deadlines. Their refund is less than the full charge to my credit card. Their refund policy is excessive when cancellation is within the three day right of recession. Since I called the same day they did not have to spend any time on my activation and therefore reclaiming that cost of $299.00 is corrupt.
Be careful with this type of pitch. It is an expensive learning experience and I hope others can avoid it by hearing my report.
