Kars 4 Kids MisLeading Free Vacation Offer with Donation Lakewood New Jersey

*Author of original report: Kars 4 Kids MisLeading Vacation offer with Donation

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I just saw a report on Kars4Kids posted by Lynn... Unfortunately I saw this after I just donated a vehicle. They may be a good charity, I don't really know but their website says "Donate your car and receive a voucher for a free 2 night and 3 day hotel stay. You can choose from over 80 resort areas."

Lynn pointed out some of the issues such as the $50 deposit , and the need for a credit card. I wanted to further clarify that the reason for the credit card is that this is just really a timeshare sales scam. If you do a google search on "worldwide Travel Center" you will see various complaints.

You only get the room if you sit thru a 90 minutes sales pitch....

If Kars4Kids is a reputable charity, they should cease this scam immediately...

Kars 4 Kids MisLeading Vacation offer with Donation

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

I am following up on another posting by Lynn regarding Kars4Kids. Lynn was upset by having to provide a credit card and $50 deposit. Unfortunately I didn't see Lynn's report until after my donation to Kars4Kids.

Kars4Kids may be a good organization, but their Free Vacation offer is a scam.. The group called Worldwode Travel Center that you have to contact to get the 3 day vacation is just a scam timeshare selling group. Even if Lynn provided the credit card and $50, you then can't get the free room unless you sit thru a 90 minute sales pitch with your spouse, and they also ask about your annual income, etc....

If Kars4Kids is a reputable organization, they should immediately stop this scam and send out an apology letter to everyone that has donated in the past few months.
