Of course by being pregnant, I wasn't going to take the risk of losing my child, so I declined the offer stating that I was pregnant and after I had the child I'd have no time to travel for pleasure. On December 18, 2007, I was contacted once again about a trip to both Flordia and Dayton. This time, it was for $169.00 for up to 5 family members. I was told that this would include free car rental from Michigan to Flordia, hotel accomondations and free night club and bar entry along a particular strip. I informed the representative that it all sounded "to good to be true" and she agreed that it did to her as well, but that it was "the real deal". I informed her that I would need something either faxed or e-malied to me so that I could see the offer in writing. She then connected me to a manager who tried to sway me by sending me to the company's website. This was a big mistake.
I was having trouble logging onto the site, then realized that I had entered the Internet address incorrectly. While trying to figure out why I couldn't get the site, the manager suggested that I go to google and enter the address from there. Instead, I went to google to research the company. I saw a number of complaints from people stating that they had been ripped off by E-Tour Travels.
At that time, I declied the offer and asked for my name to be removed from the calling list. I was told that I was wasting her time by not reading the offers that I signed up for and that nobody is going to be 100% satisfied with anything. Then, she mentioned that she's sure that I've been dissatisfied with a product that I purchased from K-Mart or Target; however, I still shop there. From there, she went on to say that next time I sign up for something, read it first. After that, she was very hostile, nasty and made some belittling comments.
I informed her that the only reason why I was contacted was because I signed up for free samples of baby products. I went on to say that since my child was stillborn, I didn't appreciate her comments nor being talked down to. However, she went on and on. I then ended the conversation by saying bye politely and hanging up the phone. I called the number back to see if it was credible and a lady answered the phone stating my first name. She then tried to transfer me to a manager after I informed her that I had signed up for this site and that I was going to report their company.
Because I refused to give my credit card information, over the phone, to a complete stragner, I was insulted. I'm glad that I did my research first so that I knew exactly whom I was dealing. Apparently, she didn't know whom she was dealing with. I hope that people will realize that this is a total scam! I'm glad that I did. Just remember, if something sounds to good to be true, it probably is. I can't even get a round-trip ticket throgh Greyhound to Atlanta for $169. Whom did she think she was trying to fool?
