 My hussband and I too recieved a letter for this 1.5 hr seesion-

Everything that everyone is saying here is TRUE. We sat for the 1.5 hr presentation and couldn't wait to get out of there.next we were pressured by a salesman.

I explained even if I had thousands in my account, I would NEVER cut a check to a compnay I knew nothing about. They said their were A+ with the BBB-CHeck again(they wouldn;t let me use there computer.)

Finally I said I was done, and an older gentleman sat down and starting saying the same spechell again. I said I am NOT intrested. They gave us our free tablet.(Thanks) and our 2 night stay(we have t opay 50.00) but be warned do not trust.

If it sounds too good to be true, then IT IS

Global Vacations Rip Off and Dishonest Co.

AUTHOR: Cruise Critic - ()

 I took went there yesterday with DH. They kept telling me on the phone, Meranda says We are NOT a Time Share company. She must have repeated this ten times. She kept on saying to me, I must be there for the presentation, Which is 90 minutes.


I was there for 2 hours 15 minutes with some man he says his name was Eddie Adams. He used to be a car salesman for Car Fax on Roosevelt Blvd. he tried to force my dh to buy a car that we did not like for the sales. He maybe able to screw others but he did not pull a fast one on me, I was too smart for him. he was a yappy man.

He said that the BBB says that they have an A plus reputation which I found out that they have several law suits against them plus 11 violations on them. I am not saying that what they are doing is good, what i am saying is that this company is a RIP OFF to others to force people thinking that this is a true place. My friend got suckered into this company on her wedding to find out when they got there the hotel was in a hell hole in Mexico instead of the all inclusive she said she paid for at 159.00 a week it cost her well over 1000.00 for a week in a rats infested hell hole.


He talked so much about his family life tried to find out about us. I told him I was an Author and he wanted a copy of my book, Do you know my personal friend who also writes books. I told him there are 1000 of us writers locally. He said that his mother in law had breast cancer,,sorry but I was not interested in this, HE showed us his tablet and said the one HE was going to Give to us is the best one on the market a 8.0 its more like a 2.0.

You can not do much for it, except read emails or google search, play games. Its not an IPAD Phone Tablet its some cheap product.


I did not expect to pay for a time share for 1 week to cost me $14,900.00 Which he kept on saying that this was cheap to stay at their places vs a hotel. I can get a nice suite at a cabin in NC for 1 week for less than what he was telling me.

He wanted to lock us into this, I said its too much money then his price dropped to $12,500.00  I said this still is too much then he said the price will go down alittle more to 8200.00 then he dropped it again after speaking to his manager for 2400.00 with 95.00 down its called a 3 yr trial.

He said there are different plans the one that is the life one is 14,900 have No BlackOut dates, so you can use it for Christmas and Thanksgiving the most traveled time of the year. Then he said that Easter and 4th July is not as good as the big holidays but you can use their places when you can. I said this is a Time Share. He kept on saying no its not its called Vacation Travel per week.


I said your company is a scam... He got nervous and I said this place is not a true place, that there is no money for this.


What stupid fools these scam companies think that we all are? I did the speel but I did not think that I was going away with anything so great. You must make a combined salary of 40,000 plus. in order to go there, There was no one int he office. The place was dead. They put on a Johnny Carson tape to us to watch, take us into a room for one on one with a hispanic man who wants to try my MeatBalls and says I must be a good cook.

I showed him my license and he said this does not look like you, so its your mother? Who is he kidding??? He said does this make sense you can only get cruises by our company for 7 days for less than 350? You can not do this. I told him. Yes I can. I got a 9 day trip coming up from Miami for 285.00 pp.He said that was not true. he kept on forcing us to sign and said that we have 90 days to get out of it, I said to him this is not gonna work. They asked us if we gamble we said NO, cause we do not like to throw away our money. He asked when we go on trips do we stay with family and friends, I said yes... That way he does not bother us. I know about this company. I work for a Mystery Shoppers, I was told to do this to check this company out as they are the complete Scammers. The young people working there is a joke.
