I have not actually purchased anything from them, nor do I intend to. However, when they contacted me with the offer of a free vacation, and then asked that I attend a 1 hour presentation meeting, lie about my income, lie that my mother and I were a couple, asked that I have a major credit card, I became even more skeptical. Once off the phone, I looked up "free vacation scam" online and found many reports of very similar tactics that were used on me. "Free roundtrip airfare for a 3 day 2 night stay at ________! Valid for one full year! No obligations! Just attend one presentation! Bonus offer ($200 gas voucher) if you come 15 minutes early!" They said they were a new company running a one-time promotion, and true to that, I did not find any information about them online, not about their company or searching using the phone number I was given.

The point of this complaint is to try to prevent people from becoming victims of these free vacation package scams. While it is true I am not an actual victim, and thus, I really do not have a valid claim right here, I daresay something seems fairly suspicious. They are running sales meetings starting tomorrow, on 02/23/2008, for at least a week that I know of.

Apparently they intend to call me back to make sure I attend one of their meetings sometime - I'm wondering if I should play along for a while before asking them how they sleep at night? They are basically criminals - how do you live with yourself? Or should I say something like, "So, I went online last night, and looked up 'free vacation scam'...and like, WOAH, these AWFUL companies were using the same tricks you guys are. Whaddaya know? That's such a shame they make all of you look so bad, isn't it?" We'll see.

I have also notified the FTC and BBB about this matter too. I'll probably file a report with the TX Attorney General sometime tonight as well. Good luck to the rest of you out there.

I don't think these criminals sleep at night; they plan the next scam

AUTHOR: Keko655 - (U.S.A.)

Complete criminal scam, those "people" should be arrested and thrown to jail. I attended on 11/2007 and it is the most hidious group of con artists that I have ever seen in my life. A guy "interviewing" us had dirty nails and he looked stoned. Of course we didn't give them any money. Never received the "gas certificates". Of course didn't send them $50 "fee" to book a free 3 day trip that would cost me more than if I booked it myself.

They were called Beachcombers Vacation Club back in 2007. Before that they were called Castaway Vacation Club.

They are so stupid that they called me back to a "presentation" just weeks ago to the same location under Phoenix Travel name? Do they think that I had an amnesia?

I filed a complaint with BBB and FTC.
