Discover the Dinosaurs should be Discover the Scam!!!!
The show promoter for this event should be ashamed to have this scam running in a family event. Obviously they are making money off misleading people. I read a post of someone who is nearly homeless that made a purchase with this company
because they never "win" anything and felt this was a dream come true. After being told that they would only have to pay the hotel taxes their card was charged $698.00 dollars.(Saw other posts online that their selling it for as low as $198.00 dollars) They called to get the money back so they could pay their rent and were told the day after purchase they couldn't get a
refund. That is a shame. I did let that person know they can call their Credit Card company to initiate a Charge back dispute and they will get their money back easily being that it is an over the phone transaction. I'd like to start a petition to contact the event promoter of this scam and hopefully stop this company from practicing deceptive trade practices. More information
on the company Universal Getaways is not the legal name, it is Magical Dream Escapes 1025 E. Hallandale Beach Blvd., #11, Hallandale Beach, FL 33009-4478. Which has an F rating with the South Florida BBB reason for name change I'm sure. The main number I believe is (954) 587-0595. The Show promoter of "Discover The Dinosaurs" needs to shut this booth down at their event so future hard working families wont fall victim to this shameless practice. And with enough complaints I'm sure it will happen for the sake of the integrity of the show." Fear is a reaction, courage is a decision" We can not make a difference in the world if action is not taken.The contact information from the show promoter for this event is:
