#1 UPDATE Employee

Global Prospects Above Board

AUTHOR: DiamondBay - (United States of America)

I am an employee of Global Prospects, we work very hard to ensure that everything that we tell people that we contact is true.  We NEVER ask for financial information.  We do ask that the people who go to the two hour timeshare presentation have one of these depending upon the resort that they visit:
1.  A major credit card  or
2.  A checkbook or
3.  A debit card

It never has to leave their hand and the numbers are never recorded.

Why?
Because we do not advertise on radio or television.  The people coming through for tours are our 'billboards".  Word of mouth is the best advertising that we have. 

The people selected need to have the capacity to purchase if they so desire.  That is the reason for asking for the above.  They are under NO OBLIGATION TO PURCHASE.  As a matter of fact most don't. But we need to know that IF they wanted to-they could.

So, boys and girls put on your BIG BOY AND GIRL PANTS and realize that this is a business and where can you go and get great gifts for two hours of your time.  The gifts are fabulous and we
do not give out adresses of suitable offices.  And, yes, we do call until we reach someone or the lead expiration runs out.  If you do not want to be called again, just say so and we will stop calling.

Also, please learn how to spell.  I would suspect that the reason that you had such a hard time comprehending the truth is that you are a little lacking in intelligence-hence spelling, facts, etc.

We have plenty of satisfied vacationers.  Maybe you have never been outside of your hometown and the idea of venturing out of your realm is daunting.  So be it.  However, you should not TRY to ruin it for others.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Former Employee

AUTHOR: former employee - (United States of America)

I would like to state the truth..I working at Global Prospects around two years ago...the place is not filth and it is not a scam...If you ask questions you will get the truth from them...I told everyone upfront what it was about...IT IS A TIMESHARE....you go to the stupid timeshare seminar and sit through the tour and then you get vouchers for your vacation...if you do not want them to call simply put your name on the do not call list or ask them to put your name on the do not call list....by law they DO NOT contact you again...it is not that hard. The company is not trying to scam anyone and they are not scumbags...they are responsible for booking the appointment and nothing else....to say anything else is a downright lie...yes there are employees there that are are trying to get paid to not work but that is not the only reason you get the hangups....the phone calls are through an automatic dialer which means the appointment setters do not hear anything except a beep and then they say hello...half of the time they do not hear anything on the other end so they hang up.
