Complaint Review: Caribbean Cruise Line - Riviera Beach, Florida
Caribbean Cruise Line Political Opinions of America Took a phony "hook" - a political survey, then they wanted $118 on my credit card for a "free 2d cruise Riviera Beach, Florida
*Consumer Comment: Similar Experience with Political Opinions of America
I received a call (apparently our number on the DO NOT CALL LIST expired, with a recoding wanting me to take a quick political survey, with a few general questions, how I felt about Republicans & the debt, Democrats and the country's debt, how President Obama's doing etc, then to hold while I'd get information about a free cruise. I knew it was phony, a "too good to be true - so it can't be" thing, so I played along, let the girl give the spiel, until she wanted my credit card number, which I said I didn't own one, (true)
so she tried for a personal check, voided, with MY CHECKING ACCOUNT NUMBER AND ROUTING NUMBER! I told her I'd have to get a certified check from the bank and she said they couldn't accept it but suggest I buy a credit card at Walmart or someplace and put $118 on that and she'd call back "because these cruise suites are going to be going fast, they're filled up from cancellations, etc." I told her it'd be wiser to wait until I was ready to go because whomever's cabin I was getting was probably cancelling at the last minute. She didn't understand this strategy - the $118 would hold my "Port of _____" (I forgot what) as I was only half listening/half writing down notes.
The sad part was I could tell she was an uneducated phone solicitor who probably only got paid when she sold some "reservations" and I felt for her. But, hey, I'm a waiter, people should feel sorry for me and tip better!
