Complaint Review: Trade Show Travel Co
Trade Show Travel Co You did Not win a Trip, This is a SCAM! - Don't give them your CC Number Florida Internet
I recently went to the Govenors Ball on Randalls Island in NY. I ( drunkenly) Signed up to "win" a trip for 2 to Floral and the bahamas. A few weeks later ( today) I recieve a phone call from a woman named Helen, claiming she was from Trade Show Travel Co. She had my information from Gov Ball and said I was selected to win the trip and began to provide me with the information. 5 nights in Orlando, 3 days in Daytona, and 4 days in Nassau. All food was included and she made no mention of air fair. The trip total was $4500 so she made sure to tell me how great of a deal it was. After a few minutes of her providing information ( 2-4 people , the Silverlakes suites ect. ) She then tells me, " All I need from you today is a $99 per person tax deposit for 2 people. The other two people were free of course. ( So a total of $200). Now I have learned growing up to Never give out your CC info over the phone to a complete stranger. So I asked her If I could call back and provide her my information in two days when I had the available funds. She swiftly said no, that I wouldn't be able to secure the discounted cost after today. So then I asked to call back in an hour so that I could finish work and have all my questions prepared. That she agreed to.
NOW is where I had some fun. I looked up the company and they have a very poorly done website, that is NOT backed by the BBB. ( first negitave ) Next I had asked her for a return phone number that I could call back, She gave me 646-645-9174. When Googled, the first thing that pops up is "How to catch Fraud phone calls" ( Second Negitave) Also the number she provided and the number on the website are completely different. Next I of course looked at the rippoff reports I saw for the company and found out they were kicked out of the Vermon Comic Con for being a Scam. All in all friends, Listen to your parents and Don't get caught in a SCAM! These people will take your money and because you provide your information it is very difficult to get it back!!! Thanksfully I did not lose any money to this company but please BE Warned!!
