Summer Bay Resorts Complaint - You've Won A Travel Certificate

Review by DBJD on 2008-12-19
I received a call today saying a won a 1100.00 Trip certificate to Summer Bay Resort. I allowed the operator to give her intro line. Then I asked how long this would take. She said a few minutes. I said I want a specific time. She just repeated a few minutes. I asked her if this would require payment today. She said there were several options. I have heard of scams that occur like this. I asked for her name or employee id and a number I could call. At that time a"supervisor" came on the line and identified herself as IXXXXD. I explained I wanted her employee id and a number I could call back. She answered with I will remove your name from the list. I said ok but I still want your employee id and a company phone number she refused. At that time she hung up on me. I called the number back 407-259-236X. And asked CXXXXXe who answered for her employee id and a co number. She asked for my number I did not give it to her. She must have caller id because she said are you calling fromXXX-XXX-XXXX and was this the number that they called. I said no. I asked again for her id and co number.

I was again hung up on. This is not the procedures of a reputable company. I want everyone to know that this is not a company to trust.

You never should be able to get employee's id's or names for privacy purposes.

Employer ID's, yep. Names, I disagree on. Being self employed, and sometimes a subcontractor, nobody would do business with me, if they didn't know my name.

When a company cold calls you, and expects an immediate response, I suspect S-C-A-M written all over their offer.

I think employee's first names could be used but not last. Exceptions for you MissMarple. It's different if you have a business and if you work for a business. I would also agree that this does sound like a scam.

Tell them to put you on the "no call list" and stop HARRASSING these scam artists at work!
Nine times out of ten when these places call, you can hear other reps talking in the background. A sure sign that it is a "boiler room" operation.
