Disney Vacation Scam / Telephone Scam- Not Really Disney
I just discovered this website a few days ago and wanted to warn others of a scam I fell for when I was 18. I got a phone call in my first apt. from a woman who worked at "Disney Dream Vacations" or something like that. She said for $250.00 per person I have a free week at any of their park hotels, free park tickets and food. I only had to pay for my flight down and back.
I was worried it might be too good to be true but I didn't even think it could be a complete SCAM. After asking multiple detailed questions I gave my c/c #, was charged $250.00 and never heard from them again. Their 800 number I was given was out of order and there was no mention of this special on Disney's website. This was almost 10 years ago but I did want others to be aware of this. I was a naive 18 year old who was swindled out of $250.00 (half my weekly check at the time), though thank the gods they didn't wipe me out.
Again, only book vacations through Disney itself or other respected travel websites. Otherwise you'll end up feeling cheated, shamed and stupid for it.
