Sundance Vacations Rip-Off Downers Grove, Illinois
0Author 0Consumer 0Employee/Owner
My fiance was at a bridal expo and filled out a form for a free Hawaii trip. She got a call saying she won a free cruise and still might win the Hawaii trip. We went, knowing we were in for a speech, but not expecting such a crazy scam. In the initial presentation we were offered 25 vacations for $20,000. Then, because of a "one-day special" we were offered 30 vacations for $15,000. All of a sudden, the doors opened and individual salespersons came in to grab people and have a one-on-one...but the way they did it was to music and everybody was speaking loudly, almost as if they were trying to capitalize on hysteria or create an excited euphoria. That individual recapped what we had already been offered. When we explained that we were not financially able to commit at this time, a third person (a manager) interjected and made us an offer for a trial of 10 vacations for $5,000 with a $1,200 downpayment. The manager walked away so we could discuss it, we said we still could not afford it. The manager was called back over and proceeded to offer us a savings plan where she would wipe away the $1,200 downpayment, we would pay $100/month until we met the $1,200 for vacation activation, and then the manager would also throw in her "leftover" Hawaii trip. We again said we could not afford the $100 payment. With that said, we were passed to a fourth person (Reginald Nance???) who brought us into his office. He ensured everybody we spoke to had been professional and proceeded to be the most unprofessional person we spoke to. He was not personable, rolled his eyes, spoke in a condescending tone, and when we told him we just couldn't pay for the vacations, he made us a final offer of all 30 vacations for only $1,495. When we said no to that, he dismissed us rudely...did not open the door for us but just expected us to show ourselves out. This is the exact same story that I have read on review sites so I am wondering if the "revamped sales tactics" and "Sundance University" Sundance Vacations are so proud of, teaches such tactics. DO NOT get sucked into this scam! Deceptive business practice with hidden charges you do not know about until it is too late!!!
