Just Dreams Scam honolulu, Hawaii
We wanted to go to a luau and stopped at an activity booth at the honolulu market at the Stadium. We thought it was an activity booth centre. We were told we could get a deal if we went to a seminar on how to join a website that had super cheap deals for 5 star accommodation, travel and car rentals. I asked if this was a time share thing as I wasn't interested if it was. I was skeptical from the beginning but was reassured by the rep it was like a Costco membership and would only take about 30 minutes.
When we got there, like the others on this website, we had an individual sit with us and make small talk, then we were told we couldn't leave to use the bathroom during the presentation or have our cell phones on. We listened to the main guy speak a mile a minute.
The 30 minutes turned into 3 hours. I get low blood sugar and was feeling very ill and wanted to leave. Before we could leave, we had 3 other people come by and the price dropped from $10,000 to $2500 and the 4 weeks dropped to 1 week which we could upgrade at anytime down the road. Financing was also offered a "credit card" rate.
There is a yearly maintenance of $189 per year as well. If they have 100,000 people already joined, that equals $1,890,000 a year they are getting to update a website??? Why would 5 star resorts give them better deal than hotwire or expedia.
We told them we weren't giving them $10,000 for listening to someone speak for 90 minutes on what a "great deal" this is without researching it. It would be no different than us giving a total stranger on the street $10,000 for a nice car without seeing or test driving it. I mean really.
After the 4th person came sat down to talk to us, they realized we weren't buying into this, and said they would process our discount tickets for the luau but kept us there until the very end, we were the last to leave the room.
So we wasted 1/2 a day, high pressure sales for luau tickets. Never again.
