Paradise World Vacation Club San Francisco aka:Paradise Vacation Club San Francisco Paradise World Vacation Club San Francisco Scam, Deceptive, Dishonest San Francisco California
The scam works by inviting couples to the San Francisco fisherman's wharf showroom on the pretense of winning a "free" vacation. The packages include 4 day Hawaiian vacation, 7 day 8 night cruise or some other great offer. The reality is neither vacation is free nor are they legitimate offers. The customer will certainly pay between $400 and $500 dollars to qualify for these "free" trips. In most cases no amount of money will qualify for the offered vacation.
The Scam: Through a video presentation customers are shown a series of vacation travel options at significant discounts. Some upwards to 60% savings on normal retail travel. The video is a well produced commercial presentation delivered with the help of a onsite "In Room" narrator. As a result the presentation is extremely believable and highly effective.
However; the video presentation is full of false claims and inaccurate information. The product sold "Gold Crown Resort" vacation club membership neither offers any significant discounts with regards to cruises, air travel or hotel bookings. As a matter of fact a Gold Crown membership may cost a consumer more to book through their system then if one simply went online and shopped for the best available deal.
The Cost: The average consumer will spend $3995.00 to become a member. This is a one time lifetime fee which is suppose to avail the customer to substantial travel savings. However; once the credit card is validated or that check is cleared any form of service through Paradise World Vacation Club San Francisco is ceased. All contact then is between the customer and gold crown resorts who will at that time explain there are no discounts to their services specifically in regards to cruises, air fare and hotel accommodations.
There are customers who have paid as much as $5995.00 for this product hoping to save on future travel. Only to later find that the savings if any are minimal. And in most cases non-existent.
The company is owned and run by Ron Moore. Mr. Moore has these operations up and running in San Diego California, Oviedo Florida, Seattle Washington, Massachusetts and Hawaii.
