Sundance Vacations Informative - Sundance Vacations Telemarketing Review
Sundance Vacations is repeatedly telling the consumer that the “sweepstakes” is not a scam because one (1) grand prize is awarded yearly. That may be accurate. However, the issue is not whether a grand prize is awarded, but rather the purpose of the sweepstakes, which is an end run around the Do Not Call restrictions. In addition, the odds of winning are approximately a million to one (1:1,000,000) and what you sacrifice for those astronomical odds is your privacy! Once you enter that sweepstakes with your phone number you will be hounded by Sundance Vacations’ relentless telemarketing calls attempting to induce you to attend a high pressure sales pitch to purchase a very restricted and impractical to use $15,000 vacation membership. Sundance Vacations says that the sweepstakes entry form waives any privacy rights that the consumer is guaranteed under the Do Not Call regulations, but that is simply not the truth. The following blog clearly explains the DNC issue:
Those Sundance Vacations telemarketers are unrelenting and if you decline their offer they become indignant and start interrogating you as to “why” you are not interested. (Their commission is based on persuading you to attend the high pressure sales pitch!) What right do they have to invade your privacy and then question your decision to decline their offer? Consequently, if you entered the Sundance Vacations sweepstakes and you are registered on the federal or state Do Not Call lists, you should call the FTC at its toll-free hotline at: 1-888-382-1222 because that’s the only way to stop the unwanted and uninvited telemarketing calls!
