WORLDWIDE TRAVEL CENTER - worldwidetravelcenter.com Agent Jesse at Worldwide Travel Center Beware of Vacation Extravaganza Scam Beware of Identity Theft Deerfield Beach, Florida
Please beware of Worldwide Travel Centers scam that circles around their promises of a Vacation Extravaganza.
First, you will be asked to mail in a $100.00 deposite just to get the certificate.
When the certificate arrives, it will include forms that require you to provide the following information: a) a PHOTOCOPY of your credit card; b) a PHOTOCOPY of your driver's license, and c) your social security number. This must be provided for BOTH travelers. You also have to send in a good chunk of money for the taxes on the "gift."
If you have already gotten these forms, please don't mail them back! Instead, call Jesse, the agent at World Wide Travel Center at 1.954.571.7990 extension 224 (Kathy is no longer there - she left!).
Now, leave repeated voice mail messages for Jesse. But brace yourself, because answering machine will give you a 30-second song and dance about how important your call is, but that you only have 15 seconds to leave a message, so you better hurry. And, you need to give them your certificate number, full name and phone number within that 15-second window. In other words, there is no time for complaining, much less explaining! Nevertheless, call repeatedly and leave numerous voice mail messages. Oh, and by the way, don't bother waiting for a reply - you won't get one.
Now that you have completed the warm-up exercise (phone lifts), its time to file a report with the Better Business Bureau and on Ripoff Report. While your at it, you might as well print copies of the reports and email them to Jesse at Jesse@Worldwidetravelcenter.com . No, this won't help either - but it might make you feel a little better.
If your really, really lucky, Jesse might actually respond, and you might even get your $100 deposite back. But then I didn't, so don't count on it. And, by the time you read this, Jesse will probably have left too, and you will be assigned to some other agent suckered into working for this terrible scam organization.
Good Luck, and please spread the word to save other unwitting victims from this sad trap.
