OLIVER LEE MEMORIAL STATE PARK RIPOFF DECEITFUL SHAM AND SCAM TYPE ARTISTS Alamogordo New Mexico
*Consumer Comment: Exactly where's the ripoff, scam, or sham?
*Consumer Comment: No Rip Off Here!
MY WIFE AND I DECIDED TO SEE WHAT IT WAS ALL ABOUT. IT WAS ALSO LISTED IN OUR ROAD ATLAS.
WHEN WE DROVE UP THE DRIVEWAY WE SAW A BOX AND A SIGN THAT INFORMS VISITORS THAT THE FEE MUST BE PAID AND PLACED INTO THIS BOX, BEFORE PARK ENTRY.
THEN STATEING THAT WE FILL OUT A TRIPLICATE RECEIPT AND $4.00 BE PLACED ITO AN ENVELOPE ATTACHED TO THIS FORM AND ONE COPY BE PLACED ON THE WINDOW OF THE CAR AND THE OTHER KEPT ON ONES PERSON.
ALSO THE SIGN STATED THAT IF CAUGHT IN THE PARK WITHOUT THIS RECEIPT A TEN-DOLLAR FINE WOULD BE ENFORCED.
WE PAID THE 4.00 THEN PROCEEDED TO THE VISITORS CENTER WHICH WAS A MERE 100 YDS UP THE ROAD AND AROUND A CURVE, NOT VISIBLE FROM THE ENTRANCE.
ON ENTRY INTO THE VISITORS CENTER THERE WAS A HUGE SIGH DISCLAIMING WARNING THAT THERE ARE MANY TYPES OF SNAKES ON THE PATH AND THEY ALSO SUGEST THAT ONE WARE HIGH BOOTS AND BE CAREFUL.
WE FOUND THAT THE PATH IS ONLY 3 FT WIDE WITH MANY PLACES FOR SNAKES TO HIDE FROM THE SUN. ROCKS BUSHSES ETC.
THERE IS ALSO A DROP OF 30 FT ON ONE SIDE WITH NO RAILING. IF ONE WAS TO BE STARTLED THEY COULD FALL AND BE FATALY INJURED.
WE COULD NOT FIGURE OUT WHY WE HAD TO PLACE THIS RECEIPT ON OUR CAR THERE WAS NO PLACE TO DRIVE AND WE WALKED UP THE PATH NO MORE THAN 10 FEET AND DECIDED IT WAS NOT WORTH THE AGRIVATION AND LEFT.
BEING IN BUSSINESS FOR 37 SEVEN YEARS I FEEL THAT A PERSON SHOULD BE INFORMED OF THIS BEFORE BEING FLEECED OF 4.00 DOLLARS.
THE 4.00 IS NOT MUCH AND I WAS MORE THAN WILLING TO PAY THE PRICE BUT PRINCIPAL DICTATES THAT I SHOULD HAVE BEEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE A CALL ON WETHER MY WIFE AND I WOULD WANT TO VENTURE INTO THE PARK WITH THE PREVAILING DANGERS.
FOR A STATE PARK TO PRACTICE DECEPTIVE PRACTICES USSUALLY DONE BY DECIETFUL SHAM AND SCAM TYPE ARTISTS.
A STATE PARK OF THE UNITED STATES SHOULD BE MORE DISCRETE AND PRACTICE FAIR BUSINESS.
THIS IS UNBECOMING OF A STATE OF THE UNITED STATES.
